Since 2003, HATCH experience is a four day annual retreat meets summit offered to 100 of the most provocative innovators, inventors, and cultural catalysts across a wide range of disciplines.
Attendees who are invited each year voter a wide swath of humanity - Oscar-winning filmmakers, Grammy-winning Musicians, CEO's and Founders of diverse companies and non-profits, designers from IDEO, NASA, Google and a wide range of hackers, inventors, educators, disruptors and mavericks.
