Thrive Lab for Women

At the Thrive Lab, we are as ambitious about making a lasting impact for women entrepreneurs, as you are about building your business.

Working with ecosystem partners, we will provide equity investments to women who are growing high-potential, scalable businesses but who aren’t necessarily on a traditional path to securing venture capital. We are focusing where the gap is greatest: women-led businesses at the earliest stages of development. This requires fresh thinking and new approaches.

We are finalizing our plans and expect to launch in summer 2023. In the meantime, please confirm your interest in learning more about the Lab at launch by filling out the form below. You will be notified when the lab is live and what next steps look like.

Please note – Due to a high volume, our response time may be slower as we respond in order of priority.

And as an equity investor, we do not provide loans or grants.
