B:Hive Bridgeport, an inspiring shared workspace was founded with a mission to culture a socially-oriented small-business ecosystem in the Greater Bridgeport Region and to become the physical and online hub for this emerging community.
The 6 folks behind the Park City’s first coworking / retail space are a motley group, a hexagon-like Breakfast Club. We are a graphic designer, a programmer, a visual stylist, a copywriter, a teacher and a city planner. We named our project after some of the planet’s best coworkers, who collaborate endlessly for the good of their own communities, and to the benefit of all mankind.
B:Hive Bridgeport addresses two very important issue that many solopreneurs and small businesses face: 1) affordable, outfitted space 2) immersive connectivity with other Entrepreneurs, creative talent and collaborative community-facing spirit. Our own experience with the challenge of small business development and the community exposed these issues and drove the initiative to solve them.
We want to tip our hat to some friends in Detroit, both at the DC3 and the D:Hive, whose efforts in the area in business development, coworking and retail more than inspired our own doings. Thanks to Bethany, Jonathan and the Motor City crew.
