    How Hive Was Created

    Hive was created in San Francisco, California with the first Hive event held at the Change.org offices in January 2014. Today, Hive operates as a Benefit Corporation and community with volunteers in the United States, Nigeria, Germany, India, Ghana, Canada, Mexico, Romania, The Philippines, and Pakistan.

    The Hive community was created to educate and connect leaders who are making a big positive impact in the world--and create an environment in which these leaders can support one another throughout their lives and careers. Hive's programming has been built for mission-driven leaders and entrepreneurs who are dedicated to creating a future that is radically better than the present.
