The HiVE is a co-working environment located near downtown Vancouver, an alternative to renting office space for small businesses and startups of almost any background. They opened in 2011 and have been evolving to suit the needs of an increasingly collaborative economy here in Vancouver, that is part of a movement that is present and growing in strength around the world. Aaron Cruikshank has been leading operations there for two years, and although he is about to move on to new pastures in the co-working/collaborative economic scene, he took some time out to share with us the ins and out of the HiVE and his own passions in life.
Repurposing and recasting the visions of space and connection, getting down to what we are most served by as individuals and groups… Aaron weaves a team and purpose together into something beautiful!
Aaron is a proponent of laid back work atmospheres, cross-pollination, collaborative economies as well as economies of scale. As a self-professed job-hopper, he is off to pollinate other sites, learn more and share more!
