(Bowling Green, OH) Some BGSU fledgling entrepreneurs are prepared to "hatch" their big ideas.
"The Hatch" is an annual event at Bowling Green State University, where ten student entrepreneurs will pitch their business ideas at 6 p.m. in the Perry Fieldhouse to alumni investors in a format similar to the TV show “Shark Tank.
The so-called "Hatchlings" hope to fund their student start-ups from alumni investors willing to make equity investments and providing real money.
To date, more than $500,000 has been committed to student startups. The "Hatchlings" have been paired with former Falcons as mentors, who have helped coach business ideas, plans and presentations.
Now in it's fifth year, "The Hatch"is even live-streamed to Hatch Watch parties across the U.S. and to several countries throughout the world.
