The Weekly BUZZ: So Many Events!

The Weekly BUZZ… 

There’s a lot happening in RI business community during the Summer…and the event locations are unbelievable!

We recently enjoyed a fantastic East Greenwich Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours hosted by our friends at the Rocky Hill School.  Dr. Jim Tracy (above left), the head of school at RHS, introduced Liam Pisano (above right), Executive Director of LearnLaunch – a world class EdTech incubator/coworking space based in Boston.  Stay tuned as the Rocky Hill School is partnering with LearnLaunch and will host a satellite on the RHS grounds next year.  Very exciting!

From the grounds of the RHS to the International Tennis Hall of Fame with the Newport County Chamber of Commerce…we’ve been very busy this summer season – having fun & working hard with our colleagues all over this beautiful state!

Have you seen our new website?
Guess what?  The Hive RI has a brand spanking new website thanks to our co-founder, Larry Zevon of Zevon Media!  Thanks Larry, we love the new simplified version!  Check it out here!  If you, or someone you know, needs a customized WordPress site Larry’s the man!

Art:
The current art show “Expressions in Color” showcasing works by Sheila Newquist and Rae Ferguson is up until August 26th when they’ll have their closing reception (details here).  Also, remember that our resident Fine Arts & Travel Photographer, Cindy Wilson, has a permanent rotating show here as well and you’re always welcome to come for a self guided tour of our gallery Mon-Fri 9-5.  #BuyArt #SupportLocal

The Weekly BUZZ: Work Life Balance

The Weekly BUZZ… #WorkLifeBalance

How important is balance to you?
Here at The Hive RI & the Mill at Lafayette we think exposure to natural light, easy access to walking, running & biking trails and a community environment are all important components to creating a healthy work/life balance.  Whether someone just takes advantage of a work space or office with tons of natural lightor likes to utilize our wooded trails for exercise or meetings or maybe likes to take their work outside next to the waterfall…we believe it’s super important to have these options and love being able to continue to offer all of this to our growing community!

We have space at the Mill:
If you’re looking to relocate your business and are interested in being a part of a thriving community…check out our available spaces here!  We have a couple of small offices upstairs in the Rodman bldg. available – one is $340 per month, the other is $450 – they both require a minimum of a one year lease and a deposit.  We also have two spaces that are around 1k square feet and will be built out to suit new tenants.  One of those spaces is wide open with a white brick wall on the street facing side with tons of light from those sexy ginormous windows and the other also has multiple windows and can be designed & built out.

Coworking in The Hive RI:
Have you been thinking about ‘coworking’?  We only charge $100 per month and you’re welcome to come ‘test drive at The Hive’ for zero, zip, zilch for the first couple of days!  Come on by, make yourself at home and see if this might be a good fit for you!

We still have 1 office open in The Hive!
Seriously, we usually have a waiting list!!!  It doesn’t happen often but we now have 1 of our coveted 4 private offices within The Hive RI available.  Unlike elsewhere throughout our lovely Mill at Lafayette, these offices are rented month to month, no deposit and no lease required…we just ask for a 30 day notice when you’re ready to move on (or up, as many tenants end up moving into larger spaces within the mill).  These offices are great if you like privacy but also like to be within a community setting.  They are just $300 per month and will go quickly so if you (or someone you know) is interested, please let Tuni know ASAP: tuni@hubdigitalmarketing.com.
