Scale your impact without scaling your business

a live interview with dirk bischof
founder of hatch



You can just listen to the audio too (check out our podcast channel on iTunes).

During this webinar Carlos was joined by community member Dirk Bischof, founder of Hatch Enterprise.

Hatch was started in 2014 and is one of the UK’s leading community enterprise incubators helping new businesses get off the ground.

They’re on a mission to create positive impact in local communities by helping local entrepreneurs create sustainable organisations.

They also partner with large corporates in financial, legal and tech to further their mission to help entrepreneurs to start and grow.

During the webinar we discussed:

  • Is this an opportunity of unequal and unusual allies?

  • Why would you consider this partnership in the first place?

  • How would you get started finding a suitable large business to work with?

  • What should you watch out for and how to make the partnership work?



Do you believe that there must be a better way of doing business?

A way that doesn't mean killing the competition and suffering from burnout in order to succeed.

A way that is sustainable at a personal, social and environmental level.

Then you've found your tribe.
