The rise of the Mumpreneur
What is a Mumpreneur? – well it’s a mum who wants to be able to fulfill her potential as an entrepreneur as well and it seems the trend is on the rise with this industry being the fastest growing of all in Australia in 2010!
The AusMumpreneur Awards celebrate and recognize those achieving success in the industry, in areas such as business, product development, services and innovation in both online and bricks and mortar businesses from around Australia.
