1250 Broadway, 27th Floor New York, NY 10001


Is starting (or maintaining) a business as challenging as finding a date? Many appear to think so. That's why the good folks over at "The Hatchery" are promoting an event called "Hatch Match." It's very much like "Speed Dating"--where you're "forced" to go from table to table meeting different people (for a delineated time period)--except this is for business networking and related purposes. Here's a copy of the e-mail I received earlier today. (The spacing problems were in the original e-mail I received. I also took the liberty of deleting the accompanying advertising.)

in conjunction with
Pace University SCI2 Incubator
for New York's Internet Week

100 Spruce St
(between Gold & Williams Sts.) Business Attire WHAT IS HATCH MATCH?

Active facilitated networking with a twist.What defines a great networking event is meeting the people you need to meet and having great conversations. So, we will help you do that. Hatchery will create introductions and provide you access to advisors and experts to help you grow your businesses.The twist is a component like speed dating. There will be about 20 experts from angel investors, venture capitals, technologists, legal, marketing, etc. All there for you to access.

When we checked the The Hatchery's website just a few moments ago, this is the list of people the company claims will be in attendance on the 4th:
