Thank you for being part of the February 2016 Hive Global Leaders Program!
We are excited about your commitment to creating a better world, and look forward to meeting you soon!
Hive begins with a Welcome Dinner at 7:30PM on Friday, February 12th. The location for our Friday dinner (and the main venue for the rest of the weekend) is Impact HUB San Francisco (925 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103).
Please bring government-issued photo identification (or a copy) for building security and plan your transportation to ensure that you will arrive promptly at 7:30pm on Friday evening.
For those of you arriving earlier, we will be hosting an informal reception nearby at the MaSo restaurant and bar from 5:30-7:00pm. MaSo is located in the main lobby of Park Central Hotel (50 3rd St, San Francisco, CA 94103).
There is an optional double decker bus tour of San Francisco for Hive attendees on Friday afternoon from 3pm before the program begins for $40. If you wish to join, you can reserve your bus tour ticket here.
The Hive Global Leaders Program will conclude at 7:00PM on Monday, February 15th, after a brief reception with Hive Alumni from past programs.
Because we have designed Hive as an immersive experience, we do not provide a detailed agenda to attendees. We hope that this way participants can be more present within each moment of the program. Our days will begin and end at the following times:
Friday, February 12th: 7:30pm – 10:00pm (Informal Reception begins at Park Central Hotel MaSo Bar at 5:30pm)
Saturday, February 13th: 9:00am – 10:00pm
Sunday, February 14th: 9:00am – 11:00pm
Monday, February 15th: 9:00am – 7:00pm
Your attendance is expected at all sessions and essential to the Hive program due to its interactive and immersive nature and work sessions within small peer groups. Please let us know as soon as possible (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you will have any issues with attending any part of the program.

What to Bring?
Your amazing self! Also: San Francisco’s weather is unpredictable in February (and most months). We may see sun, we may see rain, and we will most likely see fog. Please wear multiple layers of clothing to allow for a spectrum of 40-70 degree fahrenheit weather. We will be moving throughout each day (gentle yoga, meditation, walking outside) and encourage you to wear whatever makes you comfortable — from a suit to yoga pants! There is no dress code — come as you are.
