Launching Your Business
HatchPad offers you a way to think through the strategic aspects of launching your business. Once you have created your profile, then start developing your business page. Your business page will walk you through everything from naming your business, crafting your mission statement, describing your customer base, to how you will make money. Answer what you can, you can always come back later to fill out the rest.
You can collaborate on HatchPad in three ways: forming your team, crowdsourcing for new collaborators via our PitchIn widget, and asking for feedback, follows, likes and shares.
Funding Your Business
There are various ways HatchPad can help you fund your business. We offer crowdfunding and business funding competitions. You can link your crowdfunding campaign from your business idea page so that interested funders can immediately find where they can donate. We also offer free crowdfunding coaching and support and tons of blogs that can help you along the way.
Private Versus Public
When building your idea page, your idea is private until you publish it. Once you publish it, you can always unpublish it if you so choose. Your team comments will also be visible only to team members. However, comments made by other people will be public when your idea is public.
