Recap: Hive Africa 2.0 Held in Lagos

90 leaders from Africa, the Middle East, and North America convened for Hive Africa in Lagos, Nigeria October 25-28, 2017. 

Last week, Hive Africa 2.0 was held on Victoria Island in Lagos, Nigeria. This event was the 2nd Hive Africa in 2017, following the kickoff of Hive Africa in Abuja, Nigeria in April.

The three-day event brought together 90 leaders from Africa, the Middle East, and North America who are working on solving humanity’s greatest challenges and creating a better world. Attendees were entrepreneurs and executives working on building organizations focused on areas including renewable electricity production, education, peace and reconciliation, government transparency, entrepreneurship training, refugee resettlement, and women’s training.

One of the most unique aspects of Hive Africa is that it was hosted, paid for, and created entirely by Hive Alumni from Nigeria. They did all the work, promotion, and logistics for the event, spearheading a new decentralized model for Hive to continue its mission of building the global community for leaders working on creating a better world.

Hive Africa was created earlier in 2017 by Hive alum Grace Osula and her friend Christopher Imong. Grace attended the 8th Hive Global Leaders Program in San Francisco, CA in May 2016 and was so inspired she decided to launch Hive in Africa. She has big plans for the future.

Grace Osula discussed the future of Hive Africa

The next Hive Africa has already been scheduled in Lagos, Nigeria for May 2-5, 2018. You can apply and learn more at www.hiveafrica.org. The next Hive Global Leaders Program in the United States will be held December 8-11, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA.

Below is a recap of the event.

Opening Crucible Dinner – Wednesday October 25, 2017

Attendees gather in small groups to complete their Hive Life Plans

Hive Africa 2.0 began with an opening dinner at the Maison Fahrenheit hotel. Attendees were placed into small groups of 8, each with a Group Leader.

Group leaders facilitated each attendee sharing for 6 minutes the prompt we begin every Hive with: “What is the most challenging experience you’ve ever been through, what did you learn from it, and how did it lead you to your purpose?”

Attendees shared their “Crucible Moments” with their other small group members and realized the deeper truth that everyone goes through substantial challenge and suffering in their lives–regardless of where they are from.

Day 1: The World – Thursday October 26, 2017

The first day was held at the Victoria Crown Plaza hotel and included experiences focused on looking at what was going on in Africa and across the world today.

  • Event Emcee, Tricia Teague (Hive 8) kicked off the morning discussing the schedule for the three days
  • Dennis Okurmu (Hive 10) of Uganda started us of with 20 minutes of morning mindfulness.
  • Ryan Allis (Hive Chairman) of the U.S. led the Designing a Better World workshop, which focused on the work of philosopher John Rawls and The Global Report Card
  • Olusola Amusan of Microsoft Nigeria led us in a Rapid Prototyping exercise.

  • Ifeoma Malo of the Nigerian Energy Ministry and Power for All gave an impassioned talk about The Fourth Industrial Revolution (renewables) and the opportunity to expand solar power and renewable energy in Nigeria — and shared the story of how she became clear on her purpose to bring electricity to all households in Nigeria.

  • Tricia Teague (Hive 8) of the U.S. led us in a Speed Friending exercise.
  • Shadnaz Azizi (Hive 8) of Iran led us in a talk about sustainable development.

Day 2: Designing Your Life – Friday, Oct 27, 2017

The second day was held on the rooftop of the Maison Fahrenheit hotel and included experiences designed to allow attendees to create a new life plan for themselves and focus in on their purpose, goals, health, and habits.

Ifeoma Malo of the Nigerian Energy Ministry

  • Ifeoma Malo of the Nigerian Energy Ministry and Power for All shared her life story and how the route to success isn’t always a straight line and often includes loss, pain, and deep uncertainties.
  • Tricia Teague (Hive 8) and Ryan Allis (Hive Chairman) co-led the Designing Your Life Workshop. Attendees filled out the Designing Your Life workbook and completed the drafts of their one page life plans.
  • Attendees took a field trip to a Victoria Island park for silent reflection, lunch, and the official Hive group photo.
  • Dayo Ayeni of Lagos, Nigeria gave a talk on Mental Resilience for Entrepreneurs
  • Attendees met in small groups to fill out their Needs & Gives sheets, which were then posted on the wall to allow matching between what people needed (like coaching, web design, capital, marketing help) and what people had to offer.

Day 3: Your Leadership – Saturday, Oct 28, 2017

The final day was held in the Maison Fahrenheit conference center and included:

  • Oyeleke Ajiboye (Hive 12), CEO of Efficacy Group, gave a talk on Authentic Leadership and aligning your personal purpose with your professional purpose.

  • Attendees picked up their newly framed One Page Life Plans, a Hive t-shirt, and Hive sticker. Some stuck around for one final group photo…

Hive Los Angeles to be Held Dec 8-11


Four years ago, we asked ourselves the question, “why isn’t there a global community of extraordinary leaders and entrepreneurs working together on creating a better world?” It was 2013. Why hadn’t this community been built yet? 

It was what we wanted for ourselves. Where was the support community for the round pegs in the square holes, the purpose-driven CEOs, the inventors, the healers, the reformers, the tireless entrepreneurs, the activists, those working in the field, the impact investors, and the artists who care? Where was the community that was with you no matter where you went in the world?

Where was this community of diverse leaders who were committed to supporting each other throughout life’s ups and downs? When we were feeling lonely–like no one could truly understand us–where could we turn?

We’ve spent the last four years building the community that we only wished existed. It’s becoming real. We’ve now hosted fifteen Hive Global Leaders Programs across San Francisco, Boston, and Nigeria — and grown to over 1600 alumni across 120 countries. Our alumni are planning 2018 Hive programs in Costa Rica, Singapore, Berlin, Romania, Kenya, Mexico City, and Brazil. 

We have one more Hive program coming up this year. In just 50 days, we’re excited to be hosting the first ever Hive Los Angeles. The 15th Hive Global Leaders Program will be hosted in LA this December 8-11 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel

Hive Global Leaders Program #15
Loews Hollywood Hotel
1755 N Highland Ave, Los Angeles, CA

We’d like to invite you to join us–and bring your friends who are changing the world for the better. We’d love to have you join us for our last Hive of 2017 as your prepare yourself for 2018. You can learn more about Hive here. Our Designing Your Life Workshop on the 2nd day of Hive is what so many of our alumni remember most, and this is especially helpful right before a new year starts.

Attendees at Hive LA are coming in from 37 countries around the world (so far) and include leaders from top organizations including Google, Facebook, Tata, the United Nations, and Stanford are joining us. It’s quite the group that’s coming. We have just a few spots remaining for the LA program.

If you’d like to join us, you can reserve your spot at www.hive.org/register. We also have an early bird discount is available until October 31. 

Thank you for helping us build the global community for leaders and entrepreneurs working on creating a better world. This has been long dream of mine, and thank you for being part of that dream!

Written with purpose,
Ryan Allis, Chairman
