What do you do at HIVE44 that helps smart businesses grow?
We are a Coworking space, which is a new business industry that at long last has been recognized by the State of Missouri not just for something you do as a verb but as a noun, a place, an industry. HIVE44 was featured for its coworking space by the Missouri Business Monthly Magazine, published by the Missouri Chambers of Commerce in July 2013.
A coworking space is a dedicated open shared environment work place, which a number of major Fortune 500 companies have converted their work area to due to the increase in productivity levels of their employees. HIVE44 Business Center offers all the amenities a business office needs from coffee to high speed internet access. Individuals, partners or teams can come to HIVE44, making themselves comfortable at a table, plug in their laptop, and have use of the printer, scanner, or copier. Use of the meeting rooms, the kitchen and lounge. The flexibility of being a coworking member of HIVE44 is a great advantage to have a place that is there to support you and your company.
Being a member of a coworking space is not unlike belonging to a networking group in some ways, or an exclusive business club, where developing business relationships and trust in order to work together or to refer each other is encouraged.
A coworking space takes networking meeting marketing forward to a whole new level, instead of just meeting once a week or month with a group of individual business owners, freelancers, industry reps, etc., a coworking space such as the HIVE44 allows those same people the opportunity to work together some days or every day, side by side, yet independently on their own business. Developing a deeper connection, open to collaboration, building a community of like-minded business together and increasing commerce within the local community. It allows them to meet new and interesting people who are visiting other members when you work from a coworking space like the HIVE44,
