Introducing Spacehive Pots

Spacehive Pots are a new way to help brilliant ideas get off the ground, remix civic space and revitalise our towns and cities…

We’ve just unwrapped Spacehive Pots – a new feature that makes it easier than ever for brands, local authorities, grant-makers, and anybody else that’s excited about boosting civic life, to regularly back awesome projects.

Spacehive Pots allow you to offer direct support to project creators with ideas you’re passionate about, in a way that suits you. From offering match-funding to providing tangible materials or skills, drive real change in our towns and cities and boost civic life by creating a Stuff, Skills or Pledge Pot.

Create a Skills Pot

Skills Pots are the place to share your expertise and knowledge – whether it’s making videos, offering business advice, online promotion or even planting trees and painting walls! If you or your team want to use your skills to make a difference and get involved in bringing new life to our towns and cities, get in touch to find out more about creating a Skills Pot.

Create a Pledge Pot

Spacehive Pledge Pots are the place to provide match-funding to fuel projects you’re passionate about – just like the Mayor of London’s Spacehive pot that’s offering up to £20,000 in match-funding to the best ideas for transforming the Capital’s high streets. If you want to help awesome civic projects get off the ground contact us to set up a Pledge Pot now.

Create a Stuff Pot

Whether you’re providing trees or technology, our new Stuff Pots mean you can now offer tangible support to a variety of projects, from green urban oases that let people switch off to free WiFi zones that help them log back on. So, if you’ve got ‘stuff’ to offer – be it solar panels or speakers – get in touch to find out more about setting up a Stuff Pot.
