Sustainability

Our Purpose

To transform and better the lives of those inside and outside of where we operate. Supporting and energizing women on their professional and personal journeys. Because HAYVN believes when female entrepreneurs and small business owners come together, magic happens in all aspects of their lives.

Our Commitment

HAYVN is committed to a fulfilling member experience — we are a community. A community of entrepreneurs, small business owners and professionals who care about the work we all do and growing collectively. Since HAYVN’s founding in 2017, we haven’t stopped reimagining what “working” looks like. We are committed to serving at least 75% local, independent clients or customers. HAYVN is a CTNext partner and a Certified B Corporation™.

HAYVN is a dedicated, flexible workspace for connecting, learning, collaborating, advancing, growing and achieving business dreams with an unparalleled networking community. Through a combination of topical and aspirational programming that attracts a diverse female audience (men are always welcome).
