ABOUT THE AWARDS

A Decade of celebrating Mums in Businesses

“Being named AusMumpreneur of the Year was such a milestone for us. One of our first awards that we ever won was the AusMum Award for Product Innovation back in 2010. And we have been inspired by so many women we’ve met over the years through the network. Being a mum in business is a truly unique experience and having an award framework that recognises this is empowering and necessary. It has been an honour to be the AusMumpreneur of the Year and we hope we have inspired other women to think big. With the right idea, support and networking, anything is possible.”

Dannielle Michaels, b.box 2016 AusMumpreneur of the Year
