Hyve PNG 2021

From July 25 to July 30, hundreds of students, business owners and church leaders are coming together to accelerate, grow and improve their startups & ministries. Join us for an in-person event at the Pacific Adventist University of Papua New Guinea.


Born to Create.

“Every human being, created in the image of God, is endowed with a power akin to that of the Creator —individuality, power to think and to do.” The men and women in whom this power is developed are those who bear responsibilities, who are leaders in enterprise, and who influence character. It is the work of true education to develop this power.

Ellen White, Education, p.17


Speakers & Investor Panel

For this 5-day event, enterprise leaders, investors and business consultants are flying to Papua New Guinea to share their insights with us.
