On October 23rd, HIVE hosted our fifth successful launch party, in partnership with our portfolio company Discotech, at the Elevate Lounge in Los Angeles.
The event brought together a diverse crowd of techies, startup founders, investors and professionals from across California’s Armenian diaspora. Attendees were encouraged to test out our new online Forum beta and Jobs portal, where users can post articles, share knowledge and ask questions of the community. HIVE welcomes anyone to sign up and join the conversation online for free at hivestart.com.
At the start of the event, Discotech pitched to the crowd and shared a bit about their experience as a HIVE portfolio company. We also used their app as the event RSVP platform. HIVE Advisor Al Eisaian then spoke with the crowd, offering his experience in the tech sector and discussing the potential of Armenian innovation to build up Armenia itself. Attendees at the event had the opportunity to sign up as members on the website and today the network has reached over 850 users from across the globe.
As we conclude our launch party roadshow, HIVE looks forward to expanding the network and creating new 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.
