PANAJI: Thrive, a global nonprofit organisation was inaugurated at the GCCI premises on Monday with the aim of promoting women in business. Unlike other mentoring organisations, Thrive, a Zurich based organisation provides women-to-women mentoring. “It is the only mentoring outfit that is by women and for women,” said Shivangi Walke, founder.  She pointed out that mentoring for women entrepreneurs is important because they face challenges unique to their gender. Further, women develop a special empathy with mentors who are other women,” said Walke.  Since inception in 2017, Thrive has helped to nurture 100 women entrepreneurs, added Walke.  The NGO currently has chapters in Mumbai, Pune and Bengaluru in addition to Zurich and is on its way to setting up three more chapters in Goa, Delhi and Hyderabad.
