Wency Zablan and Jayson Larracas, founders of HatchUp Magazine

HatchUp Magazine is an assemblage of stories of today's entrepreneurs, focusing on supporting resilient local and small businesses and tackling entrepreneurship and lifestyle. HatchUp aims to amplify the community's voice as this magazine is mainly for the locals. It is not only another magazine, but it is also a platform. A platform where locals can gather and contribute concepts or actions to improve and create an impact on Calgary's business community to strengthen the local economy.

HatchUp Magazine caught on quickly, adding both large and small entities as advertisers and contributors. Jay and Wency began publishing quarterly issues, and the network swiftly grew, with a new concentration on the middle market, attracting the attention of Calgary’s core business community. More and more companies are finding that the mix of high-quality articles, affordable advertising, and active online promotion is a compelling incentive to attract attention for their business. Some of Canada’s top business personalities, including Manjit Minhas of Minhas Breweries & Distilleries, and Shane Wenzel of Shane Homes Group of Companies were soon featured on HatchUp.

Whether you are an established entrepreneur, aspiring to be one, or a local, HatchUp will make sure that you as a reader will get a lot of value from reading by bringing some of the best from the city.
