Our Events and Support

Screenshot from Thrive Brunch December 2020

'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.

How to Become Fearless with Your Finances and Play Big with Your Small Business (Virtual workshop) 

This year’s series has the theme of ‘Better, Bolder, Brighter’, and is all about how to form better strategies and make bolder decisions in order to create a brighter future for your business.

The next workshop in the series is, ‘How to Become Fearless with Your Finances and Play Big with Your Small Business’, which takes places on Thursday, 14 July from 10am until 12pm on Zoom, and is delivered by growth strategist, Neema Amin MBA.

In this interactive workshop, you will understand how you can manage your business finances with more confidence, so that you can achieve your future goals.

In groups and individually, you will reflect on your beliefs and habits about money, and how these impact on your business decisions. You will also learn about systems and tools you can use to help you manage your finances more effectively. 

By the end of this workshop, you will: 

  1. Understand your money story;
  2. Create a holistic system for your personal and business finances using cashflow management and data to plan for future growth;
  3. Develop your personalised blueprint to reach financial freedom.

Tickets to this year’s workshops are free, thanks to the generous support of Enjoolata Foundation. As a social enterprise, I use a combination of commercial revenue streams and grants to fund my work.
