 What is Hatch?

Hatch is a marketing planning tool that enables businesses to quickly create calendars, dashboards and campaign outlines.

Who is your target user?

Marketing teams of mid-sized companies and marketing agencies.

Why did you build Hatch? What problem are you taking on?

We are addressing the problem that the majority of businesses write marketing plans in Word, build presentations in Powerpoint and forecast in Excel which everyone knows is painfully slow.

How is your product different from what is currently available?

We provide a high level overview of your marketing campaigns across all channels, allow you to assess your gaps and priorities through a searchable calendar, and make it insanely simple to create a playbook full of your marketing campaigns.

Tell us your founding story. Was there an “ah ha” moment?

As a consultant, I was spending a ton of time working for clients and producing calendars, dashboards, and-play books for marketing teams. I began searching for a tool which would efficiently provide those deliverables, but couldn’t find one that didn’t cost a fortune so I set out to build the tool myself.
