Mumpreneur UK was started by two women who both fall under the category of "Mumpreneur". Amanda Farren and Laura Rigney have 7 children between them, and have previously run their own individual award winning businesses alongside Mumpreneur UK.

Amanda and Laura came together to organise the very first Mumpreneur Conference in 2009, after finding other mainstream business events did not cater for the needs of mums running their own business. They have a genuine passion to support and celebrate others who are taking on the important role of juggling family life with starting up and running a business.

After their first event, they realised that the women they were targeting needed the support and resources they provided on an annual basis more readily available and set about creating Mumpreneur UK. The Mumpreneur Conference & Awards are a way to bring together those parents who are building businesses together to celebrate their achievements and the successes of others.
