Come and meet the Hive founders at our exclusive investor event

We are holding the first in a series of investor events in conjunction with North East-based Law firm, Endeavour Partnership.

This first event will focus on Hive, an exciting tech startup which has been spun out from leading North East-based ecommerce business, Visualsoft. The software-as-a-service business is the first startup to be launched from Visualsoft’s Innovation Lab, an incubator division which utilises Visualsoft’s talent, ideas, and transferable knowledge to, launch, and grow new tech startups.
