About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower individuals living with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes with greater control over their health by equipping them with the best information, tools, and support they need to confidently manage their condition and improve their health, enabling them to live happier and more enriching lives.

The Thrive365 Team

Every day, we draw on the strengths of an accomplished senior management team assembled from diverse backgrounds including healthcare, entrepreneurship, multinational corporations, finance, technology and more. But we share a common bond – a passion for conquering type 2 diabetes that arises from personal stories of family members who suffered or continue to suffer from this terrible disease.
