WHAT WE DO
Hive Founders is a global network of female entrepreneurs, which creates accessibility to key skills, advice, grants and accelerators through vital daily support to encourage success.
Female founders face specific challenges not felt by their male counterparts when starting and scaling their businesses. This can range from funding (in 2018, only 3% of all capital invested by VCs was earmarked for female founders) to access to training and education. The Hive Founders want to help women by making a wealth of information accessible online, by building a strong network through a number of social channels, and by hosting events to bring us all together.
WHO WE ARE
We established the Hive Founders when we were both asking each other for advice. We wondered where we could go to crowdsource feedback from our peer group, facing similar problems and issues and add a dose of specialist advice where relevant.
Our vision was to uplift founders and enable growth of entrepreneurship and business through sharing and support. Starting with a few basic breakfast roundtables in person, we added an active WhatsApp group, started events and have now launched our member website.
By 2025, we'd love to add another 50,000 female entrepreneurs and provide a catalyst for high growth.
Join us, and welcome to the Hive Founders.
ACCELERATE YOUR BUSINESS
By supporting each other, we can all succeed. There are many useful articles, events, tools and downloads designed to help female entrepreneurs - you can find it all here on our website.
WHAT PEOPLE 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."
