MUMZY: Get Ready for This!
Sometimes the middle of the night can be a crazy creative time. You’re laying by your child who just had a bad dream and insists that you hold her hand until she falls back asleep all the while in a super awkward position that ensures no sleep will be happening for you until you can escape the death grip on your hand. In the meantime, your mind starts wandering and suddenly you think of a perfect idea. THE PERFECT IDEA.
Well, now there’s a place where you can go to share those creative ideas and turn them into a reality. MUMZY (www.mumzy.com) is a new platform designed for women, by women, to share ideas, get funded, and support one another as we reach towards whatever idea is simmering right below the surface, waiting for the “right time.” The cool thing about this site is that its’ not just a crowd funding platform, but also a place where women are supported through small business development resources after the capital is raised. The website is just in its infancy stage but it is already gaining some serious momentum. Hop on over and check it out.
So here’s how it works:
1. Register (takes 5 seconds) to join the community.
2. Take a look around at the projects listed. Find an idea or company or nonprofit that you’d like to support? Fantastic!
3. Don’t stop there. By joining MUMZY, you are a part of a community of moms. Feel free to give ideas, tips, etc. to projects you see brewing.
Have a project or business you’d like to launch?
I know that some of you do. I’ve been with you at playdates and the school playground and girls night out when you said, “so i have an idea…” This is your time! It’s simple to apply.
You just click CREATE at the top of the page, fill out the form, upload a video, and your application is sent to the MUMZY team for review. AND, get this, the first 100 moms to post a project on MUMZY will have the opportunity to win $1,000 towards their project.
So go on over and join the community! I love that this is an opportunity for moms to support and encourage other entrepreneurial moms in a community-oriented setting. Here’s to all the fantastically interesting ideas coming out of some of the most chaotic times of life!
