Unbridled Creativity

See How The Entrepreneurship Hatchery
Brings Student Ideas to Life

Now in its second year, The Entrepreneurship Hatchery has created quite a buzz at U of T. As its name suggests, The Hatchery provides undergraduates with tools and resources to turn their ideas into commercial products and services.

Join us for lunch on Wednesday, October 9 to learn about the program and its successes from Professor Joseph Orozco, The Hatchery’s Executive Director. He’ll share examples of the student teams’ great ideas and discuss what it takes to develop a strong business model and launch a start-up today.

Joseph Orozco, U of T Adjunct Professor and Executive Director of The Hatchery

Joseph Orozco launched his first venture while still attending university and has since founded and led companies in South America, the U.S. and Canada. An industrial engineer by training, he later studied at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and at U of T’s Rotman School of Management. He serves as an adjunct professor at U of T's Centre for Management of Technology and Entrepreneurship.

Hosted by the Class of 5T3, the Skule Lunch and Learn Series offers alumni the opportunity to gather each month and find out more about U of T Engineering and the broader world. Find out about past speakers here, and learn more about the series and its history on the U of T Engineering website.
