Moms often feel like the unsung hero in the shadows of their children. From creating masterpieces with finger paints to scoring goals on the field, we lose ourselves in their little worlds. Time after time, we encourage our children to reach for the stars and live their dreams, yet we forget to live out our own dreams.
Why Moms Make Great Entrepreneurs: MOMtrepreneurs
As our children doze off to dreamland, we find ourselves daydreaming during humdrum chores and we invent ways to improve those simple tasks. We may even sketch business plans for those great ideas; however, we allow a lack of time, funding or even emotional support to squelch our inventive and fantastic ideas.
Catherine Merritt, MUMZY founder and mom of two boys, understands first-hand the frustrations that come with a lack of resources and funding which often prevents great ideas from taking flight. Merritt developed MUMZY to provide a rich, engaging resourceful site and community to help all moms turn their brilliant ideas into realities.
In its simplest terms, MUMZY is a crowdfunding platform, specifically designed by a mom for moms. In fact, MUMZY™ is THE FIRST and only viable crowdfunding platform for moms.
How It Works
MUMZY is more than a crowdfunding platform; MUMZY supports and connects its users with like-minded moms in an online community. MOMtrepreneurs create a profile to submit their ideas or projects and then, begin raising capital to launch and grow their businesses.
Whether starting a company, developing an invention or creating a non-profit, MUMZY will ensure moms have the right resources to bring their ideas to life. In addition to raising capital, MUMZY also provides small business development resources to the community. In other words, a mom’s journey to entrepreneurship doesn’t end when her funding goals are met.
Come join me and dozens of other MOMtrepreneurs who are ready to take the first step to ignite their dreams into reality or simply support other dreamers and MOMtrepreneurs by backing a project.
While MUMZY is a new platform that is gaining momentum, it is still in its most infancy stages. The developers welcome any and all feedback in this ground-breaking, cutting-edge crowdfunding project.
What are you waiting for?
In fact, one of the first 100 people to post a project will have the opportunity to win $1,000 towards their project’s funding goal.
So, what do you have to lose? Let MUMZY and its community of MOMtrepreneurs help make your dream a reality.
