Planet Hatch opened its doors in the fall of 2013 with the mission of supporting startup entrepreneurs through integrated program service delivery and creative physical infrastructure. Since then, we've supported over 200 new companies that have created 400 local jobs. Approximately 80% of our 'graduates' are still in business and growing today.
Now we're on a mission to help entrepreneurs and startups grow into well-positioned, internationally competitive companies that will contribute to New Brunswick's economic growth and community prosperity.
We work with startups and entrepreneurs of every profile, background and sector. Our expertise comes from our knowledge of successful business models, markets and customer behaviour. We help our clients achieve global competitiveness through programs, funding, mentorship, coaching, facilities and events.
We don't do it alone. Planet Hatch operates as a single operation with our sister-brands Ignite and Knowledge Park. We also work with a robust network of entrepreneurial support, economic development and business/industry associations that are moving our economy forward. We are a founding member of Start Up Fredericton as well as many other regional, provincial, national and international membership associations and networks.
We also have fantastic sponsors and funders that see the big picture and donate their time, money and resources to help our centre and its members achieve our goals. None of our collective success would be possible without their generous contributions.
