We tailor bespoke programmes to respond to business needs.

Hatch Youth is where Pasifika aged 16-26 transform innovative ideas into commercial reality. Hatch Youth’s unique learning approach has been developed to respond to the changing world we live in. The programme combines tertiary educational opportunities through Hatch partner Massey University with a bespoke, intensive, wrap-around system, that leverages real world experience to support accelerated commercial growth and new and diverse leadership within our communities and Aotearoa.

Hatch embodies our commitment to developing both individual and business potential, scaling Pacific business ownership and capabilities, and focusing on continued economic development of the Pacific community. The programme runs over three years tracking the journey of our rising stars to provide invaluable insights into their strengths and successes, and most importantly to provide a roadmap for unlocking the potential of our communities through our youth; all while making provision for participants to align their tertiary education with a commercially viable business of their own creation.

Hatch enables a new generation of innovative, connected and commercially savvy young people to realise their leadership and entrepreneurial potential.
