If you're a Hive alum or Hive member, see your email for the link to purchase tickets


Six, years ago, we had a dream to build the global community for leaders and entrepreneurs. Today, after hosting 30 major events and hundreds of gatherings, Hive has grown and the dream is becoming real.

Today,  Hive has over 3,200 alumni and members in 130 countries and chapters in 17 cities globally. 

Every year, we call the global Hive community together for a big annual event focused on leadership, entrepreneurship, purpose, and connection. We welcome Hive alumni (those who have come before) as well as new first-time attendees. 

We have rented out 1440 Multiversity, a beautiful retreat center in Silicon Valley just 30 minutes from San Jose, California -- for three days and nights of living and learning together.

We bring the best of leadership training, personal growth, authentic relating, and meaningful community connection to CEOs, leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators who are building the future and working on creating a better humanity.

The theme for 2021 is "Achieving Your Purpose."

The gathering is focused on helping attendees get clear on why they are alive and create a clear action plan for achieving their dreams--while building lifelong bonds with leaders from around the world.

Inspiring leaders and Hive alumni from the first 30 Hive Global Leaders Programs, Hive Africa, Hive Europe, Hive Pakistan, Hive Canada, and Hive India plus new Hive attendees will be in attendance for our third annual summit.

If you are a leader who is committed to creating a better world, you are invited to join us this August 12-15, 2021. 

In 2018 we had 250 leaders from 52 countries attend

In 2019 we had 300 leaders from 57 countries attend

Ticket Cost
The cost to attend is $1250. If you book your ticket early, you will receive a discount. Earlier registrants receive the lowest prices as those early funds are most helpful to the organization in preparing for the event.

March 2020 - $750

Does Hive offer refunds on tickets?
No. Hive does not offer refunds on tickets in any circumstances (except U.S. visa denials). However you may exchange your ticket with another person or receive a credit toward a future Hive event as long as you request it at least two weeks prior to the event. 

Lodging Cost
Lodging at 1440 Multiversity costs between $210 and $525 per night depending on room type. Lodging includes three meals per day. All lodging is on-site at the retreat center. After purchasing your ticket, you can book your hotel room with the link provided on the confirmation page. You can also book nights before or after the program if you'd like to enjoy an added rejuvenating time in the redwoods. The cost of lodging is not included in the price of a ticket. All attendees must either stay on-site or purchase a 1440 Multiversity Commuter Pass upon arrival for $150 per day, which covers the cost of meals.

Staying for the Weekend
If you wish to extend your trip and have time for additional relaxation, you may wish to extend your trip to include the weekend of August 14-16, 2020. Hive team members and many Hive community members will be staying on site through August 16, 2020 -- so this will be a good time for informal connection. 

Event Venue: 1440 Multiversity, 800 Bethany Dr, Scotts Valley, CA 95066  

Room Types (prices all inclusive, includes meals)
Pods - $210/night
Shared Room - $235/night
Private Room - $290/night
Shared Deluxe Room - $330/night
Private Deluxe Room - $440/night

These rates are per person, per night and include three farm-to-table meals made with care by the executive chef, Kenny Woods. The above prices do not include taxes. For shared rooms, you will be assigned to stay with a person of the same gender, unless you request a specific roommate by calling 1440 Multiversity. 

All meals are included in the cost of lodging. They are served on-site at Kitchen Table, an award-winning restaurant that sources, prepares, and serves a full menu including local and organic vegetables, organic and local rice, grains, legumes, lightly seasoned local chicken, fish, and tofu. If you stay offsite you'll need to purchase a Commuter Pass for $105 per day from 1440 Multiversity to have access to campus facilities and meals.

Campus Amenities
Additional campus amenities include the Healing Arts infinity soaking tub, ping pong, the fitness room, daily meditation, yoga, tai chi, qigong classes, and miles of redwood hiking trails. 

We recommend flying in the San Jose International Airport (26 miles away) or the San Francisco International Airport (61 miles away). It is a 35 minute Uber or Lyft ride to the 1440 Multiversity retreat center from the San Jose airport. We recommend taking an Uber or Lyft, which are about $40 each way from San Jose Airport. If you have a car, on-site parking is available at 1440 Multiversity at no added cost.

Please arrange your flights and transportation so that you can be onsite at 1440 Multiversity between 12pm and 3pm on Monday August 10, 2020. There is an optional lunch for $25 from 12pm to 1pm. The program will begin promptly at 3pm Thursday. Should you wish to come a day early (on August 9, 2019) to ensure you are on time for the start of the program you may. Simply book an extra night at 1440 Multiversity beforehand.

When to Depart
Program graduation ends at 3:30pm on Thursday August 13, 2019. Please do not book any flights prior to 6:00pm on Thursday August 13, 2019.
