Lynne passionately believes the time is ripe for women to become entrepreneurs - and we couldn't agree more. The door is definitely more open than it ever has been before. And B.Hive has been designed to be as conducive as possible to that mecca of self-employment - buzzy networking.
Lynne created the space in partnership with Regus, and at £25/month for access to events, meeting rooms and Wi-Fi as well as the club itself, it really is one of the best value private members clubs you'll come across in London. The space, just off London's Covent Garden, is beautifully designed too - calm, stylish and pretty without being overly girly, lush with art and laden with chandeliers we're rather envious of. The plan is to roll B.Hive out nationwide, then, hopefully, internationally too.
The debate quietly rumbles on in the background about whether women need an exclusive networking and business club, but the atmosphere last night suggested they'll certainly benefit from it, and we're all for anything that helps business owners expand their networks and opportunities. Lynne explains above why she thinks B.Hive is needed and why it works so well. Feel free to add your opinions below.
