Summary

Hatch Blue is a global catalyst for aquaculture and alternative seafood innovation. 


History

Hatch has been conceived in late 2017 by co-founders Carsten Krome, Georg Baunach and Wayne Murphy. 

Hatch has been designed to be at the intersection of sustainable aquaculture, technological innovation and venture capital. They have made over 30 startup investments in the sector, almost all of which attended one of our previous cohorts. The majority of their startups are, or already have raised follow-on funding and are well underway to becoming pivotal forces in this industry. They understand the challenge of scaling a business and the speed at which you need to move to reach the next level. Their team brings an entrepreneurial mindset, deep sector expertise and a supporting network that provides unique insight and value to their portfolio companies.


Goals and Purpose

According to their website, their purpose is as follows: “Our vision is to achieve the least-possible footprint of farmed and alternative seafood. For the benefit of the oceans, terrestrial ecosystems and future generations.”


Impact

After 4 years in operation, HATCH has invested in more than 30 companies, run three successful cohorts, raised a first US $8M fund and the second $70M Blue Revolution Fund ad well as established offices in Hawaii, Norway and Singapore. The team has grown to +20 full-time members spread across the globe, who run the three business units of Hatch – their accelerator program, funds and their innovation services offering.
