How Hive Was Created

Hive was created in San Francisco, California with the first Hive event held at the offices in January 2014. Today, Hive operates as a community in various continents with regional heads and CEOs.

The Hive community was created to educate and connect leaders who are making a big positive impact in the world–and create an environment in which these leaders can support one another throughout their lives and careers. Hive’s programming has been built for mission-driven leaders who are dedicated to creating a better future for all people.
The Hive community was created as the founders were looking for a diverse community of leaders across business, government, and non-profit sectors who were deeply passionate about creating a better world and wanted to authentically support each other throughout the journey. We see building Hive as our small part of helping to usher in a continent that works for everyone and everything.
