young professionalsTHRIVE achieves their goals in a number of exciting ways. For example, members are invited to business networking happy hours, where they meet like-minded people whose insights, experiences, and observations encourage open communication and allow them to find new ways to grow. The group also organizes CEO roundtables, professional development programs, and community service initiatives to foster a well-rounded group of engaged individuals. Through these efforts, THRIVE makes Bridgeport, CT, and the overall region a more attractive place for young professionals to start their careers.

However, the Trumbull Chamber of Commerce isn’t only looking to improve the lives of young professionals in the area—the more appealing Bridgeport and the nearby communities are to young workers, the more businesses will flock to establish roots there. Not only does this mean more jobs for everyone, but it also brings more money into the local economy.
