For me, hatch provides the most amazing eco system to work alongside like-minded people, all going through similar challenges and milestones in the startup sphere. It proves to be the perfect environment, packed with inspiration and energy, while also giving you the space to have your own quiet time to focus when needed. Facilities being made available around the clock is a big plus point in my books!
Chrishan de Mel: SLASSCOM
It’s great to work in a world-class facility. Every overseas visitor to SLASSCOM is amazed at such a creative, inspiring work environment being in the city. This will truly be a hub for innovation and collaboration as we see more tenants come in. It’s also great to have all the players contributing to the startup ecosystem in one place.

Jerome Perera: Saks Analytics
Relatively easy to set up and get started. We need to ramp up quite fast with our expansion and Hatch gave us the ability to do just that. Community is fun and the open environment is lovely to work in
Nisal Periyapperuma: Watchdog
I used to work out of a cafe and coming to hatch is a massive change for me because I feel more secure and comfortable in this environment. Cost efficiency is a definite plus point.
Jayasai Jouthmal: Populo
Coming to hatch everyday feels like coming into a workspace like Google. So many awesome people from different cultures and backgrounds get together and to me, it is easily the coolest workplace I’ve been to.
hatch has the best parts of the best offices I've worked at; from the tall-airy-ceilings, themed decor, giant desk spaces (big enough to sublet) to funky communal spaces and meeting rooms. But the biggest surprise was the people at hatch, from the other members to the hatch crew, everyone has been super welcoming, open and ready to help. People told me starting a business is lonely, but I haven't felt that at all at hatch.
Amjad Nazeer: Populo
Out of all the co-working spaces I’ve worked in thus far, Hatch is by far the coolest, friendliest work-conducive environment I’ve had the pleasures of being apart of

There are no “walls” at hatch. We encourage and create platforms for our community to synergise inward and outward. With everyone hustling hard and working on their unique journeys of growth and discovery, we are home to a family that believes the only way up is together.
