Hyve Creators 2024

Hyve Creators 2024 is brought to you by the Southern Adventist University School of Business and its BringIT team, in partnership with Hyve International. We believe that faith and business, united, form a potent tool to spread the gospel. We desire to see our students and community empowered to be innovators, change-makers, and leaders. That’s why we’ve partnered with Hyve International to bring you this powerful weekend event!
Hyve Creators is a four-day conference with many networking opportunities, workshops, keynotes, testimonies, pitches, and booths—all focused on combining mission, innovation, and entrepreneurship, and featuring some of the finest entrepreneurs, inventors, and innovators in the Adventist church. 
The signature program segment is “The Lion’s Den,” our innovative startup pitch competition (an Adventist version of Shark Tank) that inspires and supports Adventist entrepreneurs to scale their missional ventures and make a great impact.

Also, this year we are launching the inaugural "National Student Pitch Competition," featuring top student entrepreneurs from four Adventist universities vying for a $10,000 grand prize, as they showcase their entrepreneurial drive and creativity.
