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.
