Some people really dislike the word, but for many it sums them up perfectly. Either way you can’t ignore the rise of the Mumpreneur.
If becoming a ‘mumpreneur’ is something you’re considering, then you’ll find yourself in amongst some very good company here in the UK.
For the uninitiated, it’s a term being applied to female business owners who also happen to own and run their own businesses while simultaneously being the mothers to children aged 18 or under.
The ‘Mum Economy’ – contributed a huge £7.2bn to the UK purse in 2014 according to a report by Development Economics, commissioned by eBay. It’s a fast-growing sector too, with the figure set to soar to £9.5bn by 2025 when it’s estimated that mumpreneurs will support 217,600 jobs across the country.
It’s a rate that appears to far outpace the growth of ‘mumpreneurship’ anywhere else in the world.
Flexible business and lifestyle opportunities
The widespread availability of better digital connectivity across the country seems to be a key factor in the rise of entrepreneurial businesswoman more work can be done when the time allows rather than being constricted to the 9 – 5.
