Mompreneur and Me® is the first national mommy and me professional development networking event. It has garnered the attention of Adweek and Entrepreneur as well as global brands like McDonald’s and University of Phoenix. Christine noticed there were no networking events for mothers that allowed their children to remain on-site. She understood how stressful, time-consuming and difficult it can be to find quality childcare. Moms should be able to build relationships with other businesswomen and spend quality time with their child. As a result, she created Mompreneur and Me® events in 2015. This way, both parents could spend time with their children and network with other like-minded professionals.
Mompreneur and Me® Events Include
- A mommy and me physical activity (e.g.: bowling, cooking classes, crafting, hiking, movies, private brunches and lunches, tea time, yoga and zoo parties),
- A professional development activity (e.g.: advocating for yourself, asking for help, content creation, brainstorming, handling office politics, interviewing, listening, networking, persuasion, resume writing and small talk),
- An opportunity to mingle and network while childcare watches the children,
- Local mom bloggers and mom influencers (with their children),
- A special gift for parents and their child from Mompreneur and Me® sponsors, and
- FREE ATTENDANCE
The events are free for parents and one child to attend (dads welcome!).

Sponsors… ready to find out more?
Companies complain their target market is ignoring their efforts. But they don’t have the time or budget to manage individual mom influencer relationships, or they create massive corporate events for moms. Even worse, no one attends. It’s because most companies don’t understand how to develop a relationship with working moms.
- 75% of the moms surveyed after Mompreneur and Me® events said their opinion of the sponsoring brand has changed. They would now patron their businesses.
- It’s a turnkey, field marketing event. We’ve checked with both the moms and brand sponsors. The moms have used sponsors’ products and services post-Mompreneur and Me® events.
- The events are deliberately small but mighty! This is thanks to our national network of mom influencers. Also, brands don’t need to manage individual influencer relationships.
