"The Hive events have been fantastic and extremely important to me as I have developed and grown my business over the past few years.

It can feel very daunting and often lonely to start a business from scratch.


The events have been a great support and taught me a great deal. I have made some great business connections (as well as friends!) through the meet-ups."

Hive events connect freelancers, start-ups and established business owners

and provide them with inspiration, encouragement and practical advice.

Our events are a non-intimidating and welcoming space to meet other business owners.


We invite successful business founders to share their stories, successes and failures

so we can learn from their experiences and have honest conversations about the challenges of running a business.  


We actively encourage skills swaps and collaborations and many partnerships have come about through meeting at one of our events. Read more in our Success Stories.
