July 6, 2020

We are super pleased to announce the launch of the Local Innovator series. This interview series aims to shine the light on the experience of accomplished local entrepreneurs, sharing their experience and lessons.

First up is Adam Jacobs, co-founder of Hatch and THE ICONIC, hosted by Christie Whitehill, founder and CEO of Tech Ready Women.

At the start of COVID-19, the team at Hatch saw an opportunity to utilise their technology to help businesses and individuals navigate the crisis together. The Hatch Exchange was born with the aim to help maintain stability in these uncertain times and prepare Australia to rebound when the COVID-19 crisis is over.

Adam covered lots of milestones that make up the entrepreneur's journey:

  • Seizing opportunities
  • Raising capital
  • The co-founder(s) relationship
  • Building teams
  • Scaling operations
  • Exiting strategies

The Local Innovator is a 3-part series, we are already working on our next event. Stay tuned for news!

Big thank you to the City of Sydney for the support through their Knowledge Exchange program and Laneway Education for letting us take over one of their classrooms and turn it into an interview set.
