ABOUT BEAHIVE

Inspired by the coworking and localism movements, BEAHIVE is a pioneering space for work and community and possibilities, the first and only of our kind in the Hudson Valley.

At the most basic level, we provide a member-powered, creative work environment for entrepreneurs, the creative class of freelancers and consultants, and microbusinesses. But we’re more than that (see our vision below).

Why is BEAHIVE spelled funny? It’s a cute reference to Beacon, NY (BEA-HIVE, Bea-con…). The original BEAHIVE opened in May 2009 in the heart of Beacon’s Main Street in an artisan-renovated 1907 Bell Telephone building.

Over the years we’ve swarmed additional hives in Downtown Albany and opened and closed in Kingston and Peekskill. More Hudson Valley hives are being planned.

 


WHAT IS COWORKING?

Quite simply, coworking is a new way to work. It has become a worldwide, paradigm-shifting movement in collaboration, where people work in a shared space, alone and together. We’re proud to have been pioneers in this movement, as we share its values of collaboration, openness, community, accessibility, and sustainability.

WHAT IS LOCALISM?

As our friends at BALLE so beautifully say it, “Localism is grounded in the belief that relationships matter, most. The way we interact with where we live — who we do business with — how we connect with people, other life, the land — all of it matters…. Localism is ultimately about building communities that are healthy, equitable and regenerative — backed by local economies that are stronger and more resilient.”

 


VISION

We’re more than a shared workspace. We’re a rich community of members with a desire to improve our professional and personal lives and our community.

We’re driven by the dream of vibrant, diverse and inclusive Hudson Valley communities — supported by an economy that is sustainable, locally rooted and human scale.
