Green Business Academy Application
Welcome to Thrive's Green Business Academy. We're excited that you're here.

Starting and growing a business is extraordinarily hard, and we have a great deal of respect for everyone who strives day-in and day-out to grow their business. Thrive is committed to doing all that we can to support business owners through the Green Business Academy. We strive to go all-in for New Orleans entrepreneurs because they go all-in each and every day.

That said, we want to hear more about you and your business. We recognize that the Green Business Academy is a big commitment and is not suitable for all businesses. This application helps us determine whether or not we're the right fit in assisting you at this time.

The best application submissions are thorough, yet concise.

We accept applications on a rolling basis. Cohort 9 will begin in July of 2022, but this is a living application link that you may use to apply for future cohorts as well.

Green Business Academy Cohort #12 
(12) Mondays from 6:00-8:00pm
June 26th - Sept 11th, 2023
