A pilot project underway at CTS is bringing together emerging trends in work, ministry and social enterprise. The Hub for Innovation, Vision and Entrepreneurship (the “HIVE”) is a co-working and learning space located in the Gemmer-Goodwin room. The facility provides an ultra-affordable space for emerging non-profit and arts organizations to work, network and flourish.
Brenda Freije, Director of Networking and Recruitment and General Counsel at CTS, said the site currently has two non-profit clients piloting the program, including a ministry focused on youth poverty, church planting and micro-finance issues and a self-employed, seminary-trained community builder working to develop a new model of spiritual formation and discipleship for those not affiliated with a church.
Upon completion of the pilot phase, HIVE clients will purchase a HIVE subscription based on two models. An entry level option will provide clients with access to the facilities and a desk while an expanded option will provide a desk and access to additional amenities such as meeting rooms and technology.
“Eventually, we will add programming to the HIVE but, for now, we are focused on developing a space that allows people to connect and share their journeys of social entrepreneurship, arts and ministry,” Freije said. She added that the space also serves to connect CTS with the community “We want to provide a resource that builds energy and encourages people to hang out in our environment. It’s a wonderful alternative to a coffee shop,” Freije said.
The HIVE expects to welcome its first client subscribers in late summer or early fall.
