HIVE Project to host Sept. 26 celebration

The Taos HIVE Project recently won the Institute for Educational Leadership's 'Minds that Move Us' national competition for innovation in education and training, which brought the project a $100,000 grant. Please join the HIVE team on Thursday, Sept. 26, 5:30--7:30 pm at Bataan Hall on the UNM Taos downtown campus to celebrate this achievement and learn more about how HIVE hopes to play a central role in education and economic development in Taos County. Check out TaosHIVE.com for more information.

HIVE has four components:

Education: Creating viable educational opportunities via UNM--Taos for those interested in entrepreneurship, hospitality and other industries that support online work. We are connecting local students to the global living-wage economy.

Co-Work: Opening Taos' first co-work office space. Students can easily transition from the education side to the co-working side, and community professionals can effectively share office space.

Small Business: HIVE is supporting small business development with a menu of services to start and sustain your business project, all in partnership with several anchor partners, including TaosWorks.

On-site Community Support Office: Workforce and social service agencies will be on-site for easy enrollment in all kinds of supports to help our students and professionals succeed.

Please invite anyone you know who wants to learn more. If you're a small business, community partner or donor, please come and set up a table to display your products and services in the HIVE gallery area. Please contact TaosHIVE to let them know you'd like a space.
