Why 1000 Four?

1000 Four is a community first platform developed with the modern entrepreneurial experience in mind. The combination of real interactions with other entrepreneurs and an on-demand ready-to-use educational library gives entrepreneurs actionable solutions to their growth problems.


In the age of rapidly changing business environments, education for entrepreneurs shouldn’t come from textbooks and business professors. An educational library built around real business experiences and guidances from a community of peers combine to conquer any business problem.

Our experts

Business owners are should look to get help from experts who have been there and done that. Answers from those they trust, because they have real world experience. We find these experts to share their stories, how to’s, backgrounds, guides, and tips on what they know best.


When every entrepreneur has a continual education and a community of support, the city can catalyze grassroots growth. The combined impact of hundreds of companies adding a few employees is not just as good as a new company bringing thousands of employees, it’s better.


Stay on top of your game

It is difficult for a business to stay on top of industry trends and the best tactics to grow. 1000 Four saves you time by curating each of our instructors and topics so you don’t spend hours scour the internet looking for the right answer.

What will 1000 Four help me do?
We have content that covers virtually every point in the business lifecycle. From accounting and legal, to marketing and content creation. If you need specific know-how on something related to business, chances are we have several pieces of content that can help you. 1000 Four is a tool that will help you get more customers, and expand your business. The community and network effect of the 1000 Four program is immense. Imagine tapping into a group of hundreds of other entrepreneurs and small business owners. The ability to collaborate, ask advice, share goals, and get support is nearly priceless. The more members, the more everyone benefits. You’ll be able to get feedback customized to your unique situation. Google searches aren’t enough. You need help tailored to your specific business and situation. These are real entrepreneurs helping you find solutions, meet your goals, and grow your business.
When can I access the content?
All of our content is available on-demand. We understand that a lot of you have day jobs and are maybe only able to work on your company late at night or early in the morning. We’d all love to make it to all of the workshops going on around town, but taking off an hour or two in the middle of the day is just unrealistic. We solve that problem by making everything we produce available at whatever time is best for you.
Who is this platform for?
1000 Four is for anyone who wants to have hundreds of experts in their back pocket. There are a lot of people who are good at one specific thing (i.e. baking cookies) but don’t necessarily understand the business side. 1000 Four solves that problem by providing our members with top-notch content, directly from the experts who have been there and done that. On top of that, 1000 Four allows you to surround yourself with other entrepreneurs who are going through the same struggles with you. Use them to bounce ideas off of, ask questions, or just as someone to lean on when times get tough.
What does 1000 Four mean?
A few years ago, I was invited to sit in on a meeting to discuss how to best help our local economy. Someone in the group mentioned that if the region could just bring in 4 companies with 1000 employees each everything should be great. That didn’t sit well with me. I knew there had to be a better way. I was already helping local entrepreneurs grow their businesses at Hatch, but that comment changed my mindset. I realized that growing 1000 companies to four employees big wouldn’t be as good as their strategy. It would be better. Growing 1000 companies with four employees would be more diverse, more nimble, more grassroots, and more local.
Where should I start?
