Applying to the Contest? Show us a sample of what you make, do, or sell (be prepared to bring 5 samples)! Stop by our office at 645 Griswold  Suite 2600 Detroit, MI 48226 on one of the following days:

  • July 11: 11am – 3pm

  • July 12: 11am – 3pm

  • July 13: 11am – 3pm

Please be prompt and watch the time! If you arrive outside of office hours, we will not be able to take your submission.

Submission sample days are focused on just that: samples! When you arrive at our offices, check in with security at the front desk. You can drop off your product here. This is not an opportunity to “pitch” your business. You can win over the hearts of Hatch judges through a thoughtful & polished application instead… and have your product speak for itself!

Please be sure to label your samples with the name of the business applying for the Contest. Due to time & logistical constraints, we will not be able to return samples.

Food entrepreneurs: please bring enough food/beverages for a group of six to eight people. If your product needs to be chilled or heated, you will be responsible for providing these sources.

If you have any questions on sample day logistics, or have trouble uploading your file, please contact
