START UP WITH HIVE FOUNDERS
Supporting female entrepreneurs at every stage, from idea to exit.
WHAT WE DO
Hive Founders is a global network of women entrepreneurs, supporting founders at any stage.
Women founders face challenges not felt by their male counterparts when starting and scaling their businesses, especially when raising capital.
We believe we can be a part of solving these challenges by providing founders with support, education and access.
Our Monthly Calls Series brings investors, founders and experts across the entrepreneurial fold to provide guidance, information and to connect with our members.
Our Investment Readiness Programme prepares women founders (and their content) for the journey of investment. Our graduates are introduced to investors and supported as they build and execute their investment strategies.
Our Monthly Pitch Clinic enables founders to prepare and practice themselves and their content for pitch events - whether they are looking for funding, customers or entry to accelerators and incubators.
Our Hive Mind Community offers a wealth of resource and experience directly from other founders.

WHO WE ARE
Hive Founders was founded by two serial entrepreneurs - Andrea Sommer and Felicia Meyerowitz-Singh. We regularly sought advice from each other and wondered where other founders found the answers to their questions. Hive Founders grew from informal breakfast meetups to a global community of entrepreneurs.
Our vision is to uplift founders and enable growth of entrepreneurship and business through sharing and support.
ACCELERATE YOUR BUSINESS
Hive Founders is a community of women entrepreneurs supporting women entrepreneurs through education, access and support.
Our monthly pitch clinic is designed to provide an open and supportive space for founders to test out their content, practice their presentations and gain confidence.
The calls are held on the first Monday of every month at 5:30pm UK / 9:30am PST.
The Pitch Clinic is available to members who join our community on Slack.
Raising investment is the biggest challenge facing most entrepreneurs. Our programme is designed to prepare founders (and their content) for the journey of fundraising.
We provide group and 1:1 support as well as introductions to investors once founders have graduated.
Have you ever wondered what exactly investors are looking for in your deck? Do you understand the intricacies on how to build an investment strategy? Do you know how to demonstrate traction before your product has launched?
Our community of experts answer these and other questions during our monthly expert calls.
Expert calls are held on the third Monday of every month at 5:30pm UK / 9:30am PST.
WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY
KAREN ADAMS, FOUNDER, PROSPA
"The Hive community is a large and active group of female founders from a range of businesses. There is a daily exchange of tips, requests, support and resources and I try to contribute as much as possible from my own experience/journey. I recently received a tremendous level of support for my crowdfunding effort from the Hive. A testament to what we can achieve when we pool our resources."
MARA LIVERMORE, FOUNDER, OSHUWE
"Since the first event I attended
with Hive Founders I've found a consistently warm and helpful community. I've love the balance of being able to share expertise, find answers, and have a safe female focused space to experience the ups and downs of enterprise."
