This is the tenth year the St. George Banking Group AusMumpreneur Awards have run, with the business mum community growing at lightning speed as mothers look for opportunities to join the ranks of small business owners in search of more flexibility, financial freedom and family time.
AusMumpreneur Network co-founder Katy Garner exclaims: “The awards show the passion of women who want to fulfil their entrepreneurial dreams as well as be great mums.”
“The number of women starting businesses has continued to grow in the last 12 months! Of the 668,670 women operating a small business in Australia currently, a total of 47 per cent are mums with children at home. We are thrilled to be the number one community for mumpreneurs and proud to showcase the best and the brightest each year through these awards.”
Peace Mitchell concludes: “We are delighted that Rebecca Lovett has been recognised with this award, she has created an outstanding business and is an inspirational role model and ambassador for mums in business everywhere. We wish her and all our amazing Ausmumpreneur Award winners every success in the coming year.”
