OUR MISSION

No one ever said entrepreneurship was easy. It takes vision, fearlessness, and lots, and lots of coffee! So no matter where you are in your small business/nonprofit/creative journey we want to help! Everyone has a story to tell and we want to hear yours. We would also like for you to contribute to our community by sharing what makes you so special: passion.

The great thing about HIVE members is not only do they contribute to our co-working community but to the community at large. The HIVE 2.0 is part of a larger collection of projects by ARCH Development , a Ward 8 nonprofit that has served Anacostia for over 35 years.

All of ARCH’s projects are located in the Historic Anacostia neighborhood and support ARCH’s mission of responsible and inclusive community revitalization through support of local small businesses, the arts and the creative economy.

ARCH projects include:
Anacostia Arts Center
Anacostia Business Center
Artist Housing
DC Artists East
East of the River Distinguished Artist Award
Go Anacostia
Storefront Improvement Program
The HIVE 2.0
Honfleur Gallery
Vivid Gallery
