Mumpreneur Awards 2011

I have stumbled across a website which will be of interest to a number of our members:

The website states that “Mumpreneur UK is a support network for mums in business, offering advice, resources, articles and events to parents who run their own business. Flexible working can be fantastic for families with young children, and starting and running your own business is the perfect way to achieve flexible working hours.”

It follows on to say that “As well as supporting and celebrating ‘mumpreneurs’, a mum who juggles running a business with family life, Mumpreneur UK are also keen to provide information and support for mums considering starting a business, and reach out to the public and let them know that starting a business is achievable.”

The Mumpreneur Awards, launched in 2009, are the UK’s first national business awards dedicated solely to mums and dads in business. The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday 25th September 2011 at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre in North Warwickshire.

The award categories are as follows:

  • Best Start Up Award
  • Best Online Business
  • Best Green Business
  • Best Supporting Business
  • Best Saleswoman
  • Best Interactive Business
  • Best International Trader
  • Best Mumpreneur Product
  • Best Dadpreneur
  • And their overall winner… The Inspirational Business Mum

If you’d like to enter for the awards, the entry criteria are given by Mumpreneur UK as follows:
“If you’re a parent in the UK or Ireland who runs their own business, you are eligible to enter The Mumpreneur Awards 2011. You must be available to attend the conference on September 25th 2011, so we ask all nominees keep this date available. Previous winners and judges are our only exclusions.”
