Objectives

HatcheryThe Bobcat Hatchery is a student-centered idea lab that operates as a supportive environment for new ideas and start-ups to get established and develop to the point that they can stand on their own. The goal is to promote and support ideation development within the entrepreneurial student environment at Ohio University. Idea development and creation at the Bobcat Hatchery will ultimately lead to the establishment of high-growth companies in Ohio and nationally. Positive business impacts can only do more to stimulate economic development in the Southeast Ohio region and beyond.

The focus of the Bobcat Hatchery is innovative, emerging student ideas. It provides a broad scope of services including cost-effective space and support, space centrally located on campus, product realization and development services, and business consultation.

The Bobcat Hatchery stimulates interaction between student entrepreneurs and other Ohio University students, faculty, administrators, and staff. It offers unique research and development collaborations with local entrepreneurs, capitalizing on their facilities, business management expertise, and technologies to leverage our student entrepreneurial success.

The time spent as part of the Bobcat Hatchery provides real-world experience for our student entrepreneurs in ideation, business innovation and creation, and research & development.
