What is HATCH?
Hatch is a business networking app focused on delivering the best business connections in collaboration with events.
How does it work?
You create 2 profiles:
1st is your virtual business card that is shared privately between two people by simply facing the phone screens toward each other.
2nd is your networking profile that is shared with nearby users within your proximity or within the network. You will always instantly see everyone that can see you, which gives you extra privacy and spares you from hour long swiping through profiles.
How Can I Join?
You can use the app when attending one of the events that we partner with.
How can I BUILD MY PROFILE?
You can build your profile by importing your information from Linkedin: your name, company's name and email. Or you can build your profile from scratch where you will have the opportunity to input your information.
You may then add keywords that describe your background and skills, the red your hobbies and your interests and the white keywords represent what your are looking for.

You may go to the contacts section from the main screen and tap on the contact card at the top. This will take you to edit mode where you can adjust all information.

You can access the keywords editing also via settings.
