Some of Delaware’s most recognized business names, including Carvertise, TheraV and NERDit NOW, got their start competing in University of Delaware’s Horn Entrepreneurship pitch competition Hen Hatch.
The Hen Hatch Finals, now entering its sixth year, is a big event that transcemends the university, with competitors pitching from the stage of The Queen in downtown Wilmington to a panel of some of the state’s top business people. Winners receive funding and prizes totaling $100,000.
