The Weekly BUZZ: Ripples…and Making Waves!

Drink Ripples?
We have over 100+ AMAZINGly cool businesses represented in our mill complex (community) here and we paid a visit to one of them last Friday.  They quickly whipped up our logo in the foam of a beer — who knew you could do that?  Check out Ripples Beer Printer here.  We’re going to be hosting a fun beer tasting/marketing demo soon down in The Hive…stay posted for details!  #NoMoreNakedDrinks

THIS FRIDAY – Stress Less At Work:
Are you feeling overwhelmed and need some balance in your life? On Friday, September 6th, we will be hosting a (brown bag/bring your own) ‘Lunch & Learn’ + self guided meditation, PLUS we’re offering complementary Reiki sessions afterwards!

Alyssa Knapp, MS, CEP, TTS of Integrative Wellness RI will be onsite at The Hive for this complementary wellness event on Friday, 9/6!

Bring your lunch to the Conference Room at 12:00 PM and learn about work-life balance, managing stress, and practicing mindfulness meditation.  Then from 1:00-3:00 you can schedule a 20 minute 1:1 Reiki session!  

Space is limited – sign up is required:  Click here to register!

Summer ‘coworking’ special extended through September…

  • Have you been thinking that you really need to get out of your home office?  
  • Have you been wishing you could work with other interesting people?  

We have a Summer Coworking special that you really should take advantage of – $75 per month for unlimited coworking Monday-Friday 9-5 and that comes with 5 hours per month use of the private conference room at no extra charge!  

This special is good for September but it goes back to our normal rate of $150 per month in October.  

Hive office:  AND, Tuni’s ‘corner office’ in The Hive will be available on 9/15 (she’s moving into another office in the mill) for $350 per month, it’s going to go fast!  Email: if you’re interested and enjoy views of the waterfall in a fully furnished office with original works of art. 

And:  Did you know that you can use our mailing address to receive mail and to use on your collateral material/website for an additional $25 per month (minimum 12 month commitment)?

And, if you’re looking for an office in the mill complex – email Mike at  

We have a few really great small offices left – we have one available for $500 per month just to the right of The Hive on the ground level. 

Is Coworking at The Hive RI for you?
Do you work at home?  Do you work out of cafes like Starbucks or Panera Bread?  Do you need an address on your business collateral/website?  Come by The Hive RI anytime from 9-5 Monday through Friday & try out working ‘alone together’ in a space that isn’t a coffee shop or a restaurant but still has that same kind of feel.  We have couches, chairs, tables and desks, coffee and internet connection.  It’s not for everyone but it’s perfect for some! 

NEWS ALERT: Extended hours coming soon!
