THRIVE supports women to launch STEM careers and businesses
We help by developing your capability, your connections and building your confidence.
Thrive supports professional women to pivot into STEM careers and launch businesses by developing capability, building confidence and paving access to industry connections. THRIVE is a new programme to introduce women to new product/service development (NPD) from idea to execution. We want to equip women with the necessary skills and confidence to develop a business or embark on a new career.
We are currently accepting applications from businesses and women in Louth, Cavan and Monaghan.
Support professional women to THRIVE in STEM with a network that provides an opportunity for members to learn from each other and and build a strong female STEM community.
The THRIVE networks objective is to introduce professionals to STEM through New Product Development from ideation through manufacturing process to completion.
