What is Sip+Hatch?

Sip+Hatch is an evening meetup for the starters and creators of North Alabama:
Artists, engineers, designers, lawyers, independent business owners, makers, poets, geeks, film-makers, beer-crafters, connectors, inventors, investors, all are welcome.

This is a venue to get out of our silos, mix and match, share and learn together to realize the innovative startup ecosystem we all know must emerge in our area.

Show up early, stay late, and network with other entrepreneurs and innovators.
