Happy New Month! The month of May is an exciting and memorable month for us because we get to celebrate our birthday on the 27th. Here are some of our plans for our 10th anniversary.

Our theme for this anniversary is “Celebrating a decade of impactful innovation and entrepreneurial growth”. As we look back on 10 years of growth, we would like to celebrate our achievements over the past years and plan for what the future would look like. We would also like to celebrate and recognise our partners, staff and the entrepreneurs we have worked with over the past 10 years. We will be sharing videos, giveaways and promotions over the course of this month so follow us using the hashtag #BHTurns10 on our social media platforms.

The Hive Coworking space is open to bookings. We offer a safe and flexible working environment to give you peace of mind as you conduct your business. We have offices, dedicated desks and hot desks available. For regular updates about our coworking space, like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. Visit our website to book your space.

Last week, we released the sixth episode of the BongoHive Podcast (Season 2). The episode talks about building a business that sells to enterprises. Our guests chatted to us about securing contracts with business, corporates and government institutions.  Listen to the episode here. 

We are just over halfway through the season of the BongoHive Podcast (4 more episodes to go!). We would appreciate your feedback and suggestions for our podcast - it will take less than 5 minutes of your time - click through to share your feedback.
That is all from us this week. Have a great week, and stay safe.
