On August 14th, HIVE hosted our third successful launch party at the Runway incubator in San Francisco. With over 100 guests in attendance, the event brought a diverse crowd of techies from some of Silicon Valley's biggest startups and companies. Attendees were encouraged to test out our new online Forum beta. Members can now post articles, share knowledge and even share job listings via hivestart.com. We hope you’ll join as well and offer feedback and your own original posts.
Runway provided the perfect atmosphere for the Silicon Valley launch as a few startup founders based in the space mingled with other startup founders, investors and stakeholders in the Armenian ecosystem.
At the start of the event, Armenian-led startups Navisens, Teamable and SL8 pitched to the crowd, sharing their focus on hiring and developing their products in Armenia. Attendees at the event had the opportunity to sign up as members on the website and today the network has reached over 680 users from across the globe.
As HIVE prepares for its launch events in Boston, Los Angeles and Toronto, we look forward to expanding the network and finalizing the new 2.0 features following our open beta. Stay tuned for upcoming updates as we continue to build a vibrant community and useful resources for Armenian tech professionals.
