HIVE hosted it’s second successful launch party on Wednesday, July 2, 2014 at the Tumo Center for Creative Technologies. With over 200 guests in attendance, the event highlighted HIVE’s new website design and advanced search capabilities that now allow users to search for others in the network based on name, company, location and, most importantly, skills.
The Tumo Center provided the perfect setting as a few of their older students attended the launch and mingled with startup founders, investors and stakeholders in the Armenian ecosystem.
At the start of the event, HIVE portfolio companies Lionsharp and News Deeply 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 450 users from around the world.
As HIVE prepares for its launch events in San Francisco, Boston and Los Angeles, we look forward to expanding the network and announcing some exciting new social features in our final 2.0 website version. Stay tuned for further updates as we continue to build a vibrant and useful community for Armenian techies.
