The opportunities within this group are endless.”

“I really enjoy Thrive because we do REAL talk, sharing real stories and experiences of the entrepreneur’s life, the good, bad, ugly and rewarding.
Kurian always leads a lively discussion and brings in interesting people from the business world to share, encourage and laugh. It’s a relaxed comfortable time to learn from experiences in an atmosphere of give and take.”
