our history


Together, CEO Jacob Skinner and Director of Innovation Dave Sandbach set up Thrive back in 2015 as a consultancy dedicated to imagining, designing and developing relevant wearable devices, connected products, and smart environments that improve people’s health, fitness and wellbeing. Our head office has always been based in Brighton, a vibrant and bustling place with a strong focus on ethics and values - just like us.


Through the years we've worked on some cutting-edge projects, built lasting relationships with awesome companies - from start-ups to the world's largest brands - and we've grown a team of bright, talented and principled people too. We are now the leading wearable technology agency and the rest as they say, is history!

Acting as your wearable technology partners, we want to help change the world for the better through evolving incredible ideas into successful products in the health and wellness market.

our mission

Our mission is to use technology to improve and enhance the wellbeing of people and our planet, achieving huge gains in health and wellness on a global scale.
