Our Events and Support

'Highly practical, informative and motivating' – that’s how Thrive members describe our events.

Our mission is to boost the clarity, confidence and connections of female founders, social entrepreneurs and women in business, so that they can grow a thriving, small business - whatever their growth ambitions.

Our popular events and business support initiatives are informed by our experience as business support practitioners, business owners and entrepreneurship educators.

Our pricing strategy is based on a Pay-As-You-Go model (i.e. there is no membership fee to pay - you just pay for the events you wish to attend).

Some of our events and support are free because they are fully funded. Other business support initiatives have a price attached.

Virtual Thrive Meetups

Our next Virtual Thrive Meetup is scheduled for Wednesday, 25 May from 6pm until 8pm on Zoom, and consists of three parts.


During the LEARN section, I will be talking to Fleur Record-Smith for a fireside chat about her business journey, and how we can become more sustainable as small businesses. Fleur is the founder of Hayne House, a wedding and events venue based in Kent that is passionate about sustainability and driven by her determination to bring change to a very wasteful industry.

Fleur is currently growing Hayne House in line with her desire to live in a more sustainable world and to lead her team through the venue's transition to becoming a net-zero venue, as well as achieve their B Corp certification.

She is also developing skills which she hopes to be able to put to use to assist other businesses in becoming more sustainable building on her first-hand experience. Fleur is an ambassador for the Sustainable Wedding Alliance and also contributes as a writer to the Sustainable Business Guide.


During the REFLECT section, we will reflect on, capture and share how we intend to embed new practices to become more sustainable in our businesses. 


For the final part of the meetup, you will network in small, breakout groups, so that you are able to GROW your network and meet other like-minded female founders and women in business.
