Calling all female business owners in Alamance County!
We are looking to launch our first peer to peer mentoring group, THRIVE, focused solely on women in business! Once a month, this group will meet for two hours, creating a collaborative sounding board for business ideas, strategic decisions, growth challenges, & more.
With only 8-10 women in the group, this will create a great atmosphere for solid mentoring opportunities. Additionally, all participants will be industry exclusive, preventing competition and allowing easy and open collaboration.
Applications for THRIVE are currently being accepted from now through May 5th. Participants will be notified on May 8th and the first meeting will begin on the 3rd week of May!

About THRIVE: Women
This initiative was the brainchild of several local women entrepreneurs who saw a need for structured mentorship programs among local business owners. The goal for this program is to provide a space and structure for peer mentoring to take place among business leaders, startups, and executives. The exclusive members will come together to strategize and share experiences toward the success of each member involved. These types of groups meet in many communities across the country, but are not yet formally available in Alamance County. With the help of local leadership, we are supporting the start and growth of these groups.
Our first focus group to be launched will be made up of women who have been in business for a year or more. The group will meet monthly and will follow an agenda that will lend time for each founder to pitch their top priority issue with the group then able to respond with ideas and possible connections. Once the CoOperative has garnered interest around THRIVE, we plan to launch our next set of niche mentor groups, THRIVE: Startups. The overall goal of these peer to peer mentoring groups is for local business leaders to share their experiences and further one another’s companies. This will improve communication and connectivity in our community and ultimately strengthen local businesses.
