Our mission is “Together Helping Realize Inclusive & Vibrant Economies.” There’s a reason why “Together” is the first word. Creating the vibrant and inclusive economy we are striving for is a team effort. Oakland Thrive wants to help businesses find the tools, resources, and support they need to succeed and the best way for us to do this is to build partnerships and help our business clients connect to our partners so that everyone is working together for success. When you partner with us, Oakland Thrive will build a strong understanding of your mission, educate our team and clients about how to engage with you, and make sure our clients have what they need to engage as well.

“I’ve found the business consultants at Thrive to be very knowledgeable, as well as passionate about serving their small business clients. In the short time I’ve been working with them, they have quickly grasped how I can be a resource for some of their clients, and I’ve already received two excellent referrals! I highly recommend that existing or prospective small business owners take advantage of Thrive’s expertise and resources. ”
