Venture Club: Entrepreneurial Program for Kids at The Hive

Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative is excited to announce the VENTURE CLUB!! What's the Venture Club? It's an Entrepreneurial Program for Kids in grades 3-5.

Over the course of the program, which meets twice a month on Saturday mornings Jan-May, participants will have the opportunity to learn about brainstorming, prototyping and pitching; creating a business together, and presenting their ideas to the community.

The program will meet at "The Hive."


What is "The Hive?"


THE HIVE is a 10,000 sq. ft. public community innovation center and makerspace. Activities and services offered in THE HIVE emphasize the following areas:

  • Creativity - using technology, artistry, construction, design and modeling to generate innovative ideas and results.
  • Collaboration - fostering an atmosphere that allows the public to work together toward new projects.
  • Coworking - supporting entrepreneurs, new businesses and start-ups by providing resources and neutral meeting ground for the exchange of ideas.


THE HIVE is not a traditional quiet library space. Expect a buzz of activity when you are visiting!


The HIVE features bookable spaces and equipment and offers innovative, creative programs and open learning labs for the public. Guests must have a valid Hillsborough County Public Library card to schedule use of bookable spaces and equipment. 

They have a 3D printer, a robotics lab, an arts center, a media:scape pit, a recording studio and a flex space.
