Join us for the launch of iHive followed by SAM Fest (www.cybertechnetwork.org/samfest)!!

iHive is a unique, innovative business shared workspace and incubator program committed to the Internet of Things. iHive delivers business and technical support to early stage companies providing Internet of Things related products and services. iHive is located in a quality office suite in downtown San Diego and at the center of an exploding high technology (Qualcomm, Sony, AccelerateIT, AIS) and defense community (SPAWAR, BAE, General Atomics, SAIC, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics NASSCO) and near San Diego State University, National University, UC San Diego and University of San Diego.

iHive members receive business support services from iHive’s experienced and highly skilled services team, robust and redundant data connectivity, shared reception area and conference rooms, and a strategic location along Freeway 5 and the nearby Enterprise Zone. iHive is just 5 minutes from San Diego Airport and less than 15 miles from Naval Air Stations Miramar and Coronado, US Navy Amphibious and USMC base Camp Pendleton.

Members also have the opportunity to collaborate with the talented faculty and students of local highly ranked colleges and universities many graduating with technical degrees in computer science and IT. Our proximity to Mexico is also an important source of high tech talent. Currently, 451,000 Mexican students are enrolled in full-time undergraduate programs, vs. just over 370,000 in the U.S. The Mexican students benefit from high-tech equipment and materials donated to their schools by foreign companies, which help develop course content to fit their needs. Many of these engineers graduate knowing how to use the latest software and hardware and are fully fluent in English.

Vision: To be a trusted community and educational resource that creates new, high quality technologies and employment opportunities in the emerging Internet of Things.

Mission:

iHive is a sustainable shared work space and incubator community focused in the area of high technology, cybersecurity and the Internet of Things. iHive is currently accepting applications from high-potential, early-stage companies from across the country looking to further develop and commercialize their Internet of Things technologies. www.cybertechnetwork.org/aboutihive
