Last week, Hive Africa 2.0 was held on Victoria Island in Lagos, Nigeria. This event was the 2nd Hive Africa in 2017, following the kickoff of Hive Africa in Abuja, Nigeria in April.
The three-day event brought together 90 leaders from Africa, the Middle East, and North America who are working on solving humanity’s greatest challenges and creating a better world. Attendees were entrepreneurs and executives working on building organizations focused on areas including renewable electricity production, education, peace and reconciliation, government transparency, entrepreneurship training, refugee resettlement, and women’s training.
One of the most unique aspects of Hive Africa is that it was hosted, paid for, and created entirely by Hive Alumni from Nigeria. They did all the work, promotion, and logistics for the event, spearheading a new decentralized model for Hive to continue its mission of building the global community for leaders working on creating a better world.
Hive Africa was created earlier in 2017 by Hive alum Grace Osula and her friend Christopher Imong. Grace attended the 8th Hive Global Leaders Program in San Francisco, CA in May 2016 and was so inspired she decided to launch Hive in Africa. She has big plans for the future.
The next Hive Africa has already been scheduled in Lagos, Nigeria for May 2-5, 2018. You can apply and learn more at www.hiveafrica.org. The next Hive Global Leaders Program in the United States will be held December 8-11, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA.
Below is a recap of the event.
Opening Crucible Dinner – Wednesday October 25, 2017
Hive Africa 2.0 began with an opening dinner at the Maison Fahrenheit hotel. Attendees were placed into small groups of 8, each with a Group Leader.
Group leaders facilitated each attendee sharing for 6 minutes the prompt we begin every Hive with: “What is the most challenging experience you’ve ever been through, what did you learn from it, and how did it lead you to your purpose?”
Attendees shared their “Crucible Moments” with their other small group members and realized the deeper truth that everyone goes through substantial challenge and suffering in their lives–regardless of where they are from.
