Venture capital firm Hatcher+ has entered into an partnership with technology start-up accelerator BlueChilli. Under the partnership, which will commence in April, Hatcher+ will co-invest in 240 new technology start-ups chosen by BlueChilli over the next three years, with finance to come from a new $US125 million ($A162 million) fund. BlueChilli founder and CEO Sebastien Eckersley-Maslin says it will need to find 12,000 entrepreneurs in order to choose the best 240, based on its previous processes for selecting start-ups to invest in.
