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  community with volunteers in the United States, Nigeria, Kenya, Germany, India, Canada, Mexico, Romania, 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 who are dedicated to creating a better future for all people.
