Let us tell you about
our thriving hive.

Our History

Happy Hive was founded in June 2017 and started to set up shop in Xavierville Subdivision, Quezon City. Due to several factors affecting the business, the coworking space was transferred to UP Village, Quezon City in late 2017 then Sikatuna Village, Quezon City in 2020.

It started with wanting to help other professionals and startup companies who are having a hard time navigating through the rough waters of entrepreneurship, business formation, and administrative functions to sustain the business. The coworking space was later on incorporated to function as a one-stop shop where students and other entrepreneurs could thrive regardless of their chosen activity.

The company is built on the values of transparency, open-mindedness, and continuous learning. “Happy” embodies the culture and atmosphere that we want to foster both for employees and clients; while the term “Hive” was derived from the concept of beehive where bees intrinsically work alongside to contribute to the survival of the colony. We LIVE, we WORK, and we PLAY, together.

Our Vision

A service-oriented company geared towards helping other individuals and businesses focus on their core business activities, improve opportunities for growth, increase efficiency and effectiveness, and improve bottom line by decreasing expenses.

Our Goal

Create a venue and business support for professionals and start-ups. We especially want to empower creatives to become entrepreneurs, legitimate freelancers, and business owners. In time, we want this service to be accessible to all at convenient locations within communities.
