FAQ's

What does my membership include?

So glad you asked! We've pulled together over $1,000/mo in benefits for you. They include the following:

— Access to our downtown workspace from 7 AM to 7 PM, 7 days per week. You can sit in any available open space.

—Unlimited Meeting Room Use for routine business duties (coworking, zoom calls, 1-1 client meetings, team meetings, etc.)

—Unlimited Event* Hosting Privileges in the Workshop Room (7 AM- 7 PM). 

—Unlimited Event* Hosting Privileges in the Main Space in the following windows: 7-8 AM, 12 - 1 PM, or 6-7 PM on weekdays.

You also get access to our weekly events, several of which include a chef-catered lunch! We have lunch and learns, accountability sessions, masterminds, group business and mindset coaching, and more!

The biggest value of all (in our opinion) is the network. You'll be plugged into over 200 local women in business who are potential mentors, collaborators, clients, service providers, and most of all...friends.

Is there a long-term commitment? Do you offer refunds?

If you join as a month-to-month member, that's it. You can cancel at any point. We don't like locking people into things! If you did choose to pay up front for 6 months or for 1 year in exchange for a discount, you are free to cancel at the end of your commitment. We do not, but you're welcome to cancel at any time and you will not be billed again.

Are men allowed at The Hive?

Absolutely! They can even buy a day pass to work from 8 AM to 5 PM. We encourage you to bring your male clients, co-workers or significant other to The Hive at no charge for a meeting, coffee chat, or even lunch with you. We think of The Hive as a women-focused, inclusive space. That means we’re all about welcoming everyone into our sanctuary.

I really love coffee...is yours any good?

We get complements on our coffee all the time! Everyone loves our bean to cup espresso machine that makes French Vanilla Lattes, Cappuccinos, hot chocolate, and more. You get unlimited coffee with your membership and can treat your guests to a cup of Joe too!

I have ADHD and worry I won't be able to focus around so many cool women...any advice?

You are among your people! Did you know that people with ADHD are 3x more likely to start a business? Because we focus on entrepreneurial women, we figure a solid 60% of our members have ADHD. And guess what? They all say they get so much more work done at The Hive. Why? Body doubling, my friend. It's having a friend or partner who works simultaneously in the same room as you, giving you hidden accountability to stay on task.

I'm [an introvert/too old/new to business/etc.]. I don't think I'll fit in...what do you think?

Our members come from all walks of life, so you would be surprised who you'll find among our bees. Our membership ranges from 18 all the way to 70+. We have plenty of introverts and extroverts. Some have been in business for decades and others don't know the first thing about starting a business (that's partly why they're here)! Besides, it's not about fitting in and being the same as everyone else...it's about finding a place where you can be yourself and BELONG!

I have an office already and don't need a space to work. Is membership still worth it for me?

Absolutely. For less than the costs of a cup of coffee per day, you get access to group mindset and business coaching ($1,000/mo in value), a mastermind session ($500/mo value), accountability session ($50/mo value), and two chef-catered lunches ($50/mo value), not to mention the wealth of resources, connections, and general positive benefit on your mental health from being around cool women who are constantly inspiring you, challenging you, and cheering you on.

What if I have a Zoom call or a phone call and need a private space?

You can pop into our conference room, recording studio, or even the workshop room for a little more privacy. We do discourage members from taking zoom calls or phone calls in the main space, so as not to disturb those coworking, but there are plenty of nooks and crannies to hide out in and take a call!

Where will I park and how will I access the space? It gives me anxiety not knowing!

We're located in the Orpheum building at 200 N. Broadway Ave. Ste. 110. You can park in the lot behind the building, in a spot marked "Hive" or "visitor" or even across the street or on 1st street in 2 hour parking. Once you join officially, you'll receive log in instructions for an app on your phone that you can use for keyless entry to our front door. (We keep it locked on the outside for safety, so that only members and guests can enter.)

Can I host events in the space?

Yes! With nearly 2000 square feet of tall ceilings, curated furniture, kitchenette, and a bean to cup espresso machine our beautiful event venue serves our Wichita, KS clients in need of an intimate space to host their next workshop, pop up event, conference, business meeting, birthday/anniversary party, or wedding/baby shower.
