Summer Camp for Mompreneurs

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Nearly half of stay at home moms plan to network with other professionals to find new jobs, but unfortunately 1/3 of them don't have contacts. More than 70% of working mothers and fathers say women are penalized professionally for starting families, and men aren't. And almost three-quarters of moms - and more than 70% of women without children - say mothers are offered fewer opportunities to move up the ladder than childless women. Enter Mompreneur and Me.

Featured in Adweek and Entrepreneur, at Mompreneur and Me events groups of working moms and their children (dads are welcome too!) and social media mom influencers network and have fun- from bowling to mommy and me cooking classes. For the first hour moms participate in an activity with their child, and for the second hour they network with one another and work on professional development activities: from handling office politics to advocating for oneself in corporate settings.

The women love Mompreneur and Me events because unlike conferences and other meetups, thanks to corporate sponsorship they do not need to pay to attend or travel outside their city. Mompreneur and Me events come to their city. The moms also have access to quality childcare while on site, so they can network guilt-free.
