“When HIVE was founded, there were only a handful of investable startups but now, thanks to capital and access to mentorship, there are thousands,” states Nina Achadjian, Partner with HIVE Ventures. “It’s been inspiring to watch the Armenian entrepreneurial scene grow tremendously over the last few years. And the beauty of it is that we are just beginning!”
