The Hive, a leading flexible workspace operator in APAC, celebrates its 10 year anniversary with a community-driven charity fundraiser.
The Asia Pacific Region’s leading flexible workspace operator, the Hive, commemorates 10 years of beautiful spaces, a thriving community, and creating a second home for members.
Designed to spark long-lasting professional relationships and genuine connections, the Hive aims to foster creativity in its curated spaces, cultivating a growth environment. The Hive celebrates a decade of milestones for its dynamic community, unique events, boutique spaces, and continuously expanding network.
Serial entrepreneur Constant Tedder launched the Hive Wan Chai in 2012, recognising a demand in Hong Kong for people seeking to work in and create an environment that felt as good as it was productive.
The following year, the Hive opened its second location in Sai Kung, and consequently expanded to Thailand in 2013. Now, the workspace operator’s network spans 21 locations in 7 countries across the Asia Pacific region.
Hive Life Magazine, the leading voice for entrepreneurs and startups in the region, launched in 2016, covering business news, entrepreneurial insights, and lifestyle guides, spotlighting industry thought-leaders, innovation, and trends that are redefining the world’s most powerful industries – from tech and finance to sustainability and wellness.
The same year, the Hive Studios, a specialised workspace for creatives and influencers, opened in Kennedy Town.
The Hive’s flagship location in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, launched in 2018, opening the second Hive Cafe and beautiful terrace area.
In 2021, The Cluster joined the brand portfolio, becoming the 2nd location in Melbourne, Australia.
3 new locations joined the Hive in 2022, including 2 spaces in Singapore and the brand’s second management agreement, with leading Hong Kong based property developer Chinachem Group, opening the Hive Central x CCG Commons.
The Hive also launched signature events over the years, such as the Runway Asia fashion show, Shorties film festival, Hive Talks (previously The Experience Series), Sights and Sounds, Meet the Crafters, and many more.
In 2022, Runway made a successful comeback post-Covid at the Hive Studios in Singapore, bringing together emerging designers, talents, influencers, and the wider creative community of the region.
Hive Talks also branched out in 2021, launching curated event series honing in on different aspects of entrepreneurship, innovation, creation, and key learning experiences with Five with the Hive, Down the Rabbit Hole, Superfail, and Startup Stories.
2022 marks a commemorative year for the Hive following its merger with Malaysia’s largest coworking space operator, Common Ground, and the creation of parent company, The Flexi Group, expanding the brands’ combined reach to 46 locations across 12 cities and 9 countries across the Asia Pacific Region.
The Hive will be hosting a celebratory Charity Run and Luncheon starting off in Kennedy Town and ending at the Hive Sheung Wan. All are welcome to join a family and pet friendly barbecue in Sheung Wan where a silent auction from notable sponsors such as Time Auction, Pirata Group, Anisha Thai, and Buddy Bites will be raising funds for ImpactHK, Sai Kung Stray Friends Foundation, and A Plastic Ocean Foundation.
