This year, WeAreTheCity and HSBC are proud to publish the Thrive20 list which celebrates incredible female entrepreneurs with purpose led businesses.

The Thrive20 is more than just a celebration of female entrepreneurship; it is a testament to the power of purpose in the world of business. The entrepreneurs who receive this recognition demonstrate that it’s possible to excel in your field while making a meaningful difference in the world. By acknowledging their achievements, we encourage others across the business ecosystem to follow in their footsteps, fostering equity, diversity and innovation.

We would like to congratulate all of the Thrive20 honourees for their contributions and for being role models to those who will follow in their footsteps.

The Thrive20 community will be celebrated at an event at HSBC’s London headquarters in Canary Wharf in January 2024.

  • Empowering female entrepreneurs with purpose-led businesses is not just about breaking glass ceilings; it’s about shattering expectations and building a world where passion and profit co-exist in harmony. These women are all excelling in their respective businesses whilst creating much needed change in society. I am truly grateful WeAreTheCity and our partners at HSBC are able to shine a spotlight on their success and inspire others with their stories.
