A Focus on Diversity:

Hatch House Ventures has a strong focus on diversity among minority and women owned businesses. According to the Kauffman Foundation, Black-owned firms represent 7 percent of all U.S. businesses, Asian-owned firms represent only 4.3 percent, and Hispanic-owned firms’ share is only 10.6 percent. Hatch House Ventures is proud to state, officially, that 53% of the companies accepted into our programs in the past two years represent a minority group as it pertains to ethnicity.

Hatch House Ventures also maintains a strong male-female ratio-of-participation percentage with over 30% of accepted applicants being female. Given 8% of applications received are from female entrepreneurs, we’re very proud of these numbers with hopes to drive a larger pool of applicants from minority and female entrepreneurs.

The Numbers (Hover To View):

  • White-Causasian
  • African-American
  • Indian
  • Other
  • Female
  • Male
  • LGBT
