Welcome to the Hive news section – check here for all the latest updates about Hive and our events.
The Hive Network was officially launched at Blackburn Youth Zone in September 2012 with an aim to turn Blackburn and Darwen into a ‘world class’ business area.
Established by some of the Borough’s most influential people and companies, more than 170 business leaders have already signed-up to the Network.
We encourage you to join and help us.
Spanning all sectors and open to any local firm, large or small, Hive has made a commitment to raising the prosperity of the towns. In year one our priorities have included working together to:
- tackle unemployment and promote apprenticeships
- unpick public sector procurement and increase local inter-trading
- raise the profile and prospects of businesses within the Borough
In year 2, we will re-convene the Network, launch a local procurement portal, create a forum of local finance providers, build on our key strengths including manufacturing excellence and continue to promote the area as a great place to do business.
