People who are interested can co-invest in Hall9 via a loan that can earn them a return well above interest rates on savings accounts!

Last year we organised our first Climb With Pride edition. During the pandemic it was important to create a space where the LGBTQIA+ community could gather and reconnect, after 6 months where our dedicated spaces were closed. During the first edition we were sad we couldn’t dance together, so we thought we’d do something about that for this edition. We will try to make Climb With Pride a monthy recurring event.
