The Industrial Hive
A pillar of futur industry

Unlocking potential and developing talent

When we talk about transformation or agility we refer to attitude and recipes for common sense. At the Hive, rather than just sharing words or concepts, we suggest taking action. It’s this that transforms and influences the environment.

Take part in The Hive’s industry 4.0 roadmap, put into action via collaborative and agile projects

Taking part in inter-company projects

The Hive’s expertise today is the ability to move from the vision sharing phase, problems and “irritations”  to that of joint action.  

Once this identification, funnelling and alignment work has been carried out we enter the inter-company project phase, in which each party provides human resources and expertise, both material and financial.  In doing so, risks are shared and the expertise of different teams steadily grows.

Boostart, accelerator of industrial projects


The Boostart program, an industrial project accelerator, is intended for project leaders in the start-up phase. The objective is to develop projects as well as women and men, who are key players in the transformation of companies.

During the programme, project leaders from different companies meet up with their peers within the same class.

  • 5 to 6 projects developed at the same time
  • Duration: 3 months
  • 1 half day per week
  • On site at The Industrial Hive (Lyon)
  • Highlight: the marathon
  • 2 complementary facilitators: an entrepreneur and an intrapreneur

The program is based on the principles that presided over the creation of The Hive: alignment between the project owner and his project, doing to learn, working as an extended organization, transforming suppliers into partners, conducting one’s project in a convivial way, etc.
