Explore a host of services & businesses supported by Thrive

Our clients are more than refugees and asylum seekers–they are Australia’s next business owners. When these aspiring refugee business owners reach our country’s shores, they bring with them a wealth of experience, skills, innovative ideas and the motivation to build fulfilling lives and livelihoods in a safe country.

However, running a business as a refugee in Australia can be a daunting task. Refugees do not share the same privileges and benefits as Australian citizens, so the legal and administrative process of starting up and funding a refugee-owned business can prove to be a huge challenge to these aspiring refugee business owners.

That’s where we come in. At Thrive, we help these refugee business owners to live their dreams, become financially independent and contribute to Australia’s economy and community. Thrive not only extends financial assistance, but also offers business support and mentoring to refugee-owned businesses to ensure their success throughout their tenure with Thrive.

Thrive supports a wide range of businesses and business owners in various industries, such as transportation, cleaning services, entertainment, building services and more. See our list of local businesses near you:
