Introducing The Mumpreneurs Networking Club

You may not have heard the term, "Mumpreneurs" before, but you know the concept: a mother who is also an entrepreneur. The Mumpreneurs Networking Club is a group in Great Britain whose members coordinate business networking events meant "especially for mums and female entrepreneurs." The Mumpreneurs have a variety of meeting locations, and local mums can attend a meeting for free to decide if they'd like to join the club.

By attending networking events with other women in business, members of the MNC often see tangible results, such as new clients, friendly support and advice, and increased self-confidence. Lucy Ames, an artist who attends MNC meetings, described the group by saying, "There is such a diversity of knowledge on offer and so much energy in the group that it is quite unique."

By the way, dads and non-parents are also welcome at MNC events. To get a taste of the MNC, you can subscribe to their monthly newsletter; back issues are also posted online.

The mums of the MNC are currently engaged in a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise money to continue growing their organization across the United Kingdom.

The motto MNC uses on its website and elsewhere is: "Never underestimate the power of a good gossip!" By utilizing word of mouth marketing and one-on-one personal connections, the group is proving that good news travels fast when it comes to local businesspeople finding work and support by forging relationships with other businesspeople in their communities.
