You’ll know MPowered is for you, if…

Our mission at Mums & Co is to help all business mums thrive - in work and in life. But along the way, we’ve found that mums in business have a lot of the same questions. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering about any of the following, the workshops at our conference will help you find your answers:

  • How can I make money / commercialise?
  • How do I launch or fund my business start up, next stage of growth or expansion?
  • How do I be more confident and resilient?
  • How do I juggle it all? How can I be more productive?
  • How can I attract more customers?
  • How do I build a community?
  • How important is personal branding?
  • How do I gain credibility and influence?
  • I’m an introvert, will this hinder my success?
  • How do I make friendships and create a support circle who can back me, help me, and who get me?
  • How do I find family-friendly ways of networking with like-minded leaders and innovators?

Sound familiar? Join us at MPowered!

And finally...pitch and win!

Just 2.2% of venture capital funds are awarded to women-led ventures...but we want to change that! So in the weeks leading up to MPowered, we’re giving every mum in business an opportunity to pitch your business ideas.

Winners will be announced during the conference and have the chance to win prizes from the $34,000 prize pool be awarded great prizes, including the opportunity to be trained on the art of a pitch, mentorships, prototype development and cash prizes.
