Out of hundreds of business concepts that submitted to the 2018 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest, presented by Bedrock, our Top 10 Semi-Finalists are here! Vote for up to four businesses to make it to our Finalist round!

Hatch Detroit is a vehicle to champion and support independent retail businesses through funding, education, exposure and mentoring.

The Contest

The 8th Annual Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest Presented by Bedrock is back! For the past seven years, Hatch Detroit has run a contest that awards up-and-coming entrepreneurs a $50K grant to build out their brick and mortar storefronts.

Meet our Hatch Alums

Thirty-three of the businesses that have competed have opened their storefronts, while an additional 12 are navigating their way to opening in the next year.

The Neighborhood Initiative

This program is about supporting long-standing independent retail. Between bike racks and lighting upgrades, new signage and new sidewalks, Hatch is working to make neighborhoods a better place to do business.
