OUR MISSION

 

B-Hive aims to build a strong international fintech ecosystem where knowledge, contacts, resources and technology can be shared. Along with our partners, we pursue the mission of helping our members in their efforts to deal with the impact of digital technology on the financial system. We believe that building bridges between important fintech hubs and the Eurozone enables both European and non-European companies to grow and expand.

 
 

B-HIVE: THE BRIDGE BETWEEN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND CONTINENTAL EUROPE

Companies from the vibrant technology ecosystem in London and the broader UK often have the ambition to expand to continental Europe. But how do you begin? And, more importantly, where do you begin?

At B-Hive, we provide our UK members with a home base in the very heart and capital of the Eurozone, Brussels.  

UK companies willing to do business in Europe can find in B-Hive a strong partner that provides active support and guidance through its extensive network of partners—including large financial institutions as well as dynamic startups and government decision makers.

Our offer in a nutshell:

1.      Access to some of the most important players in the European market that are looking to source innovative technology solutions

2.     Business opportunities through participation in content programs on specific innovation themes

3.     Exclusive invitations to worldwide events

4. Access to a global community

 
 

MEET, DISCOVER, CONNECT

B-Hive provides its members with knowledge and expertise from a large community as well as access to the market, funding and government. To make this happen, B-Hive believes these three elements are key: meeting, discovering and connecting.
