Entrepreneurs have a lot of questions that don’t have easy answers.
The Hatch was created to pull apart some of the big questions around entreprenurialism.
Each episode explores the stories and struggles of Australian and international entrepreneurs through the eyes of two student entrepreneurs.
The Hatch is created with students in the Microsoft Podcast Studio located in the Hatchery space. The podcast is another element of the Hatchery entreprenuriship program that students can get involved with and learn how to make a podcast – including researching, reporting and recording.

Money: What is it good for?
