HatchEd - Innovation Conference and Idea Incubator

HatchEd - Where good ideas are born.

HatchEd Has Gone Virtual

February 18, 2021

The date and format have changed, but our commitment to innovation hasn't! Due to COVID-19, we have decided to move HatchEd to February 18, 2021 and adopt a virtual format. We know many innovations are happening in response to this crucial moment and we are excited to hear about them at HatchEd 2021!


About HatchEd

HatchEd is Ferris State University's celebration of innovation in higher education. It is a conference for innovators and would-be innovators from every college and department across Ferris. HatchEd empowers exploration and creates an environment where you can make unexpected connections.

This year we are excited to welcome the Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Work (formerly the Ferris Author Celebration) to HatchEd.
