Get to know the members of our vibrant HiVE community! This month’s featured Bee is Tom Bond, one of our star Desk Bees and hot desk member. Read on to find out how Tom is creating a new product that will change your morning routine for the better.
Name: Thomas (Tom) Bond
Position: Business developer
Company: Independent consultant
Member at the Hive since: October 2018
What are you working on and why are you passionate about it?:
I’m an intra-preneur at KYRMIA Sport, a smart clothing company in the United Kingdom. I help them to innovate, grow the business, and come up with new strategies. Basically, I’m a problem solver.
I’m also developing a toothbrush that is fully biodegradable and doesn’t need water or toothpaste. I decided to create this product because the toothbrush is a highly disposable product that ends up in landfills, and I wanted to solve an environmental problem.
Why did you choose the HiVE as your go-to coworking space?:
I like the community at the HiVE. We get involved and do things together, like the Marketing Committee and organizing events as a community, not as an institution. I like that I can trade my hours for desk-beeing. And I also like that the HiVE is close to my home.
What are the first three words that come to your mind when think “the HiVE”?:
Orange and bumblebees
Also, Taco Tuesday
How can the Hive community support or collaborate with you?:
It would be good to leverage some of the community and get to know some of the people who have recently launched physical products, so I can troubleshoot with them and learn from their mistakes as I develop my own product.
