How We Thrive


About this show

“How We Thrive” is a docuseries profiling inspiring stories female entrepreneurs and the impact their businesses have made on the world. From one of the world’s more prolific acoustic instrument companies, to a Senegalese entrepreneur trying to combat the poverty image, to a pioneer in the health care industry who built a half a billion dollar company as a female CEO in Texas in the 1970s, to a pair of women cutting their way through miles of conflicting rules in the legal marijuana industry in Colorado - each episode follows the creation and growth of a specific company, the trials and tribulations experienced, and the knowledge gained - with the hopes of inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs.

We chose women who not only do business well, despite all of the roadblocks: funding, regulation, competitive markets, but women who are passionate about what they do - women who are striving to make a difference.
