It’s been a good start to the year and the hive is a buzz with the news that our head bee, MD Paul Kavanagh, has been awarded the rare opportunity of a place on the Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small (10Ksb) Businesses programme.
Delivered by UCL Advances, a world leading centre for entrepreneurial development at UCL, one of the top ten universities in the world, the programme is designed to help entrepreneurial small businesses unlock their potential and grow faster.
The application process was tough, to say the least. But from the hundreds of written submissions received, Beehive was one of just 60 companies called to take part in a ‘Dragons’ Den’ style interview. And, we’re delighted to announce, that our business case was deemed powerful enough to secure us one of the 30 sought after places available on this prestigious programme.
To be chosen from amongst such strong competition is a fantastic accolade. This really is a golden opportunity to learn from leading business experts and to realise our growth aspirations.
There is of course a social element to the learning too, with entrepreneurs chosen from a wide range of sectors all bringing different skills and experiences to the programme. If there is one thing bees love it is networking and peer learning.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our clients, partners, friends and family for their support and helping us to achieve what we have thus far.
