Now that the cooperative has been formed and the basic infrastructure created, we are now seeking funding partners for the next of the bHive journey.

This investment will build on the technology development and communication strategy for the platform to build, test and launch first applications through $140K in grants/donations/philanthropy.

Phase 2

We have identified a process to source a $900K investment round to build and launch platform for 20,000 members.

Ongoing Financials

$2.5b is spent in Bendigo annually and most of that leaves town. bHive is about keeping that money flowing here.

In ten years, with 20,000 members, bHive turnover will pass $10m/year, with an additional $2.5m/year raised for charity and $34m/year being generated by our member sharing services, creating local work, local income and local profit for thousands of local people.
