It’s hard to believe, but the Hive at 55 is now 6-months old. Yesterday, we raised a glass and celebrated this anniversary with friends, partners, and members that have supported us along the way.
We have partnered with countless organizations and had hundreds of individuals walk through our door and join our community. It’s been amazing to become a resource for the many small businesses, entrepreneurs, and freelancers in New York City.
The Hive is definitely “on the map” when it comes to the greater technology and startup communities.
The celebration started at 6 PM, just about the time when our members start to wrap up their day. With drinks supplied by The Greene Grape and delicious food from Harry’s Italian, we pushed “play” on the stereo and let the fun begin!
We saw so many familiar faces: a mix of current members, Meetup organizers, friends of our community, and even some new folks who have been supporting us from afar. A women-based entrepreneur club was even discussed to empower the women of the Hive!
You can check out some of the festivities at our Flickr page. More than 100 people attended the party, including more than 20 members of our co-working community (some even brought their kids!).
The Hive will continue to evolve based on the people who work here. Their personalities and professional needs, as well as their input on programming and events, are what make the Hive a special place to do business. We look forward to celebrating our first year with everyone and seeing what changes are made in the next six months!
