Thryve was cultivated from the Design Garage course at the Stanford University d.School (Hasso Plattner Institute of Design), which teaches students how to bring a product, service, or experience to market while taking them through the design thinking process. As a Stanford Affiliate, I had the opportunity to fully engage with the coursework and the team to develop Thryve. The idea for Thryve was born out of the team lead's research in agricultural technology. As a team, to make the project more manageable, we focused on a group of high-value crops: cannabis, saffron, and lavender. As the project progressed, we focused solely on legal cannabis since it was the most relevant and disruptive because of the policies and debates it sparked, especially in California.
