We provide practical exposure to cutting edge start-ups and proven social entrepreneurs. Through a programme of coached and non-coached sessions with entrepreneurs, executives are immersed in new business models and confronted with creative talent. Exposure to a variety of approaches and perspectives challenges executives to explore their own ways of working and consider new ones. This facilitates cognitive and non-cognitive processes related to creativity and innovation such as flexible thinking.
Hive enables selected entrepreneurs to tap into the expertise, advice and contacts of experienced executives in leadership positions. The aim is to address a specific business challenge facing the start-up, as identified by the entrepreneur. This experience provides real insights into the inner workings of corporations and enables a transfer of know-how and best practices in a non-hierarchical working environment based on trust.
Hive inspires individuals to learn, grow and find solutions by engaging with a carefully chosen mix of diverse and high quality people in an trusting, non-competitive environment. We provide practical exposure to new fast growth businesses from different sectors and challenge individuals to find business solutions through collaboration. It is through the process of sharing information and experiences with peers and start-up founders that members can develop personally and professionally and remain at the forefront of innovation.
Hive in practice.
