WHAT IS THE THRIVE MEETUP?

The Thrive Meetup for Female Founders and Women in Business is managed by The Thrive Effect. The Thrive Effect is the leading membership-based business support organisation for female founders and women in business in Sussex.

We host monthly Thrive Meetups in Brighton and Hassocks.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A THRIVE MEETUP?

During the first half of the Thrive Meetup, a female founder or woman in business delivers a 30-minute talk, sharing her expertise with the attendees. This is followed by a short Q&A session. During the second half of the Meetup, the Thrive Meetup organiser, Clare Griffiths, facilitates a peer support group session during which attendees have the opportunity to find practical solutions for each other's business challenges.

WHO ATTENDS?

Our Thrive Meetup members come from a range of industries and their businesses are of different ages. If you are tired of the more “traditional” networking activities, then join us at a Thrive Meetup to feel the benefit of being part of an extremely supportive community of female founders and women in business. Women who attend our Thrive Meetups tell us our meetups are inspirational, informative and a great place to make new connections.

Free drinks and refreshments are provided.

OUR PURPOSE

Currently, only 20 per cent of small businesses are led by women (Parliament UK, 2018). As a social enterprise, our purpose is to increase the number of female-led small businesses in the UK so that it is at least equal to the number of male-led businesses.

OUR MISSION

The mission of The Thrive Effect is to give our members the inspiration, knowledge and connections they need to build a business that lasts.

We create opportunities for our members to learn and network with other female founders and women in business via our events and our digital platform (www.thethriveeffect.co.uk).

OUR VALUES

We pride ourselves on following a ‘no-bullshit’ approach to business support.

We deliver practical business support which is inspiring, informative and accessible to a diverse range of female founders and women in business. We are proactive, and most importantly, authentic.

OUR VISION

By 2025, we want to have supported over 10,000 women — via our events and our digital platform — to start, develop or grow their own business.
