Thrive is proud of our green entrepreneur pipeline and of the three finalists who were alumni from our Green Business Academy: leading green infrastructure businesses including Gro Enterprises, Flourish Horticulture, and Garden Picasso. Each of these BIPOC are growing in this local resilience industry, using their innovative ideas from building houses of hemp to soil health maintenance.
