FAQs

What does Hatch Team, LLC do?

We connect early and growth stage businesses with highly qualified, vetted Hatch Experts™ who provide support on an hourly (Hatch and Go™) or interim (Hatch Prime™) basis. Hatch Experts may serve as hourly or interim Chief Financial Officers (CFOs), Chief Technology Officers (CTOs), Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) and/or General Counsels.

 

What services does Hatch Team, LLC offer?

We currently offer two services:

  1. ‘Hatch and Go’

If you need a few hours support or have a discrete project ‘Hatch and Go’ will pair you with an Hatch Expert on an hourly / project basis at a pre-determined price

  1. ‘Hatch Prime’

If you need an interim C-suite officer ‘Hatch Prime’ will match you with a Hatch Expert to assist an ongoing basis on terms agreed between you and the Hatch Expert

Hatch Prime consists of two parts:

  1. An initial Consultation: we host a 45-minute consultation to discuss your business and interim support needed
  2. Presentation of resumes:  we present you with 2-3 interim Hatch Experts for you to interview

Both you and the Hatch Expert will be given the opportunity to connect with one another and decide if there is a match. The cost for the matching service is a one-time, up front cost.

If the match is successful, terms, fees and contracting are established directly between you and the Hatch Hatch Expert (at which time Hatch will apply a 20% Success Fee against the value of the agreed contract).

 

How much do our services cost?

Hatch and Go services vary depending on the support you need – for a list of typical services and corresponding prices click here . Prices vary from $720 for general advisory (4 hours) to $2880 for an investment deck (16 hours). Most Hatch Experts offer a free 30-minute consultation session.

Hatch Prime cost is agreed between you and the Hatch Expert.

 

Where do consultations take place?

Typically, consultations take place virtually – this allows you access to the greatest number of Hatch Experts. If, however, you are in the same location and prefer face-to-face support we can coordinate an in-person meeting!

 

May I choose my Hatch Expert?
