What inspires you? For me, it’s the small moments experienced in living a creative life; through food, travel, culture, music, design and everyday adventures. When I attended the J&B Hive 2018 Showcase in Braamfontein; I felt inspired by the entrepreneurial ambition, the space and the city I live in.
What is the J&B Hive?
The J&B Hive is more than just a shared work space; it’s a community filled with local creative entrepreneurs and a place for them to come together to connect and collaborate. The community has access to a range of workshops, masterclasses, technology, mentoring, support and financial investment.
The trendy and modern double volume space boasts a cafe and a bar and regularly host events. Entrepreneurs are welcome to work and socialise in the Creative Hub, as well as take advantage of the Accelerator Programme which provides support to grow their businesses.
Who is the J&B Hive for?
The J&B Hive is for innovators in design, food, fashion, tech, street culture, music, film, photography and the like. So basically, if you have an amazing, creative, innovative idea – they can help you make it happen!
If you’re passionate about curating products, services or events which cater to the above and you’re looking for an awesome networked community; you’ll benefit by applying to join the J&B Hive in Johannesburg.
What can they offer?
The J&B Hive understands that every entrepreneur is different and therefore they have two offerings to choose from, depending on the support you need:
