The 2018 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest is here!

First, you apply online by following this link.

If you are a top ranking applicant and potential candidate for the Top 10 semi-finalist round, you will be contacted privately the week of July 23. You will likely be asked to provide additional samples to assist in the next round of judging.

If you’ve been selected as a Top 10 semi-finalist, you will be notified the week of August 30. If you are at top 10 semi-finalist this information must be kept confidential. You will be introduced to the public at the August 9th Announcement Party where you will be expected to set up a “booth” with products and samples- whatever best demonstrates your concept.
