The Hive RI: like-minded individuals working alone… together

MONDAY – FRIDAY 9AM – 5PM (except holidays) Inquire about weekends.

The Hive is not an incubator and we’re not a traditional coworking space. We strive to be an authentic community centerpiece, a place of action where people come together – much like a bee hive – to enhance themselves culturally, professionally and personally.

If you or someone you know is grinding-it-out at a local coffee shop, or working from home, The Hive offers a positive and professional atmosphere. We have quiet workspaces for you to work uninterrupted, as well as opportunities to collaborate with other like-minded folks.
