Who we are
The best way to learn anything is to get help from somebody else. But most of the time being in the same place or connected in real-time with the right people is hard or impossible. Hive Learning is the learning app for teams and organisations, and our mission is to make learning stick by enabling people to learn together every day.
We're a young company already earning acclaim across sport, business and education with a unique product and a brilliant set of client partners including Sky, Barclays, Sainsbury’s, Jaguar Land Rover, the FA, the Premier League, Halma, Innogy, Naspers, and Arch Apprentices and Graduates. 65% of the usage of our platform is on mobile, more than half is outside office hours.
Founded and chaired by world-renowned coach Sir Clive Woodward and backed by Blenheim Chalcot, the UK’s leading venture builder with an impressive track record of over 40 start-ups, our other advisors and investors include Matthew Syed (Times columnist, former international table tennis champion, author of two acclaimed books on high performance) and Dan Cobley (ex MD of Google).
