A city as innovative as Huntsville is full of people that know how to get things done. The Catalyst Center for Business & Entrepreneurship has made their mission to find those people and help them succeed. When they hosted The Mompreneur Event last year, they realized the unique challenges women face when they are starting a business AND managing a family.
Women’s Business Center Program Manager, Katie Williams, sees it all the time. “Today’s ‘mompreneur’ has more on their plate than other small business owners. In many cases these women have day jobs to work and small children to raise, and are only able to focus on their business ventures late at night or on weekends.”
Obstacles like these are what The Mompreneur Event will focus on at the half-day mini conference on November 2nd. Panel discussions that feature local moms & entrepreneurs will have topics like “The Struggle Is Real” and “Fake It ‘Til You Make It”. Topics like mom guilt, life hacks, and how to bootstrap your business from side hustle to full-time gig are all on the agenda.
Getting a new business venture off the ground can be especially hard for single moms. Breakout sessions that address how to make your dreams happen while raising your kids solo plus a hands-on workshop over lunch are all included in the day. All mompreneurs will leave the event with brand new contacts, a built-in support system, resources to get their business venture running, and a head start on a business model canvass. (Plus… the goodie bag is going to be EXCELLENT.)
