Thrive School FAQs

Does Thrive School only take place in Dublin and Cork?  

Currently Dublin and West Cork are the only locations where there are full core programme. However check out some one day workshops here. 

What if I can’t get to all the monthly gatherings? 

We understand that you may not make them all in person. We will share all the resources from the gathering with the private group after each event. And of course you will be able to participate in the online forum for the time in between our gathering.

Is it only for women? 

No, men are very welcome too! It is likely though that there will be more woman than men. It seems that women are drawn to this learning format, particularly the group/ community aspect.

How many places are there? 

We have 18 spots on the programme. Small enough to be intimate, large enough that you get you expand your network and collaborative potential.

Why do I need to fill in an application form? 

The application form is designed to get you to think about whether you are the right fit for the programme and for us to sense into whether Thrive School is right for you. We want to bring together a cohort of thrivers who are ready to take action, learn together, grow together and who get value for their time and money.

I don’t have a business yet but I am thinking of starting one, can I join? 

Yes- especially if you are really ready to invest time into building the skills and confidence to launch your own. Thrive School works best when you have an idea to incubate or prototype, so you can learn as a group as you go

How much does it cost? And can I pay in instalments? 

Thrive School fees are in Dublin are €700 when paid in full. There are payment plan options available, in two and three instalments.  Payments are made via bank transfer. Prior to the course starting a non-refundable deposit of €200 is required to secure your place on the programme. Your agreement to take up a place is also an agreement to pay the full fees of the programme according to your payment plan.
