Mumpreneur101 set to boost local mums employment

Wednesday, 25 January 2017

The City of Mandurah is helping local business minded mums elevate their employment opportunities by running another series of the popular Mumpreneur101 workshops.

The free program is focussed on mums who currently run, or want to start a home based business. The program provides skills and resources through a range of workshops over 8 weeks, with subjects including digital marketing, time management, networking, well-being and the importance of mindset and success.

Mumpreneur101 will begin on February 13 until April 3 at the Mandurah Business Development Centre.

Mayor Marina Vergone said Mumpreneur is a great initiative and just one of the ways the City of Mandurah is addressing current unemployment figures in Mandurah.

“As a business woman, wife and mother I know about the challenges of juggling work and family and I’m extremely proud that the City is supporting such a worthwhile program for women in the region,” she said.

The City also offers a number of other entrepreneur programs for different groups including Artpreneur101, Design Your Own Job Program and a Migrant Women Program, which have all experienced great success.

Applications for Mumpreneur101 close on February 6, limited places available. For more information visit www.mandurah.wa.gov.au.
