Thrive Lab for Women
We believe supporting women-led businesses who seek to create positive social outcomes will bring meaningful change and positive returns. We are equally committed to building a community of investment partners who share our ambition to increase access to investment capital for women changemakers. Working with like-minded partners, we will invest in promising impact-driven, women-led companies and support them in pursuing their growth.
Be the change
The Thrive Lab will provide $100 million in equity and equity like investments to women-led businesses. These companies seek to make a social impact that is tied to the UN Sustainable Development Goals such as food security and responsible agriculture, health and well-being, education, reduced inequalities, and responsible consumption and production.
How the Lab works
As a collaborative Lab, we will innovate, experiment, and adapt to expand the capital available in the marketplace for women-led businesses making a difference.
Working with our partners, every company we invest in will be well supported with capital, resources, and mentors, dedicated to help them grow and achieve their impact goals.
Who the Lab is for
- Woman-led, impact-driven companies providing solutions to some of our most pressing social issues.
- Initial focus on businesses at their earliest stage of development who will achieve their objectives while generating a financial return.
- Companies who are actively raising capital and who are vetted and nominated by a BDC approved co-investment partner or funded through an investment contest.
