If you want something to change, you have to be willing to stand up & start that change yourself.
Mubo was founded by Ceri Gillett in 2018. Ceri interviewed 103 Female entrepreneurs at different stages of business to find out what they felt they needed help with when it came to starting & growing a business. Her research focused on the difficulties these entrepreneurs faced juggling business & motherhood & she combined the data with a popular business planning tool to create an online accelerator for mums in business. The focus is on taking action & community.

The Mubo Mission
We are on a mission to make starting & growing a business more accessible for mums.
Work can often get harder for mothers of young children. We meet women every week who have been forced to take a step back from their careers, are unable to find suitable employment or cannot manage to find or afford suitable childcare.
We meet women every week who have talents, skills, passions that would make amazing businesses & it’s our mission to bring those businesses to life.
Building a business develops your skills, your confidence, your community & your financial literacy.
Confident, financially independent women make an impact in their homes, in the lives of their immediate family & that ripples out into the communities they live in. We need more of that in the UK, today more than ever.
We work with sponsors in order to offer our LaunchPad accelerator for free to any mum who has a business idea she wants to explore. It is vitally important that this stage one intervention is provided by an organisation with lived experience & also that this support does not come with any financial barrier. We are so grateful to have had the support of many sponsors over the last few years, from banks, to tech companies, local authorities, grant funders & housing associations.
LaunchPad accelerator helps mums get their business idea off the ground. Many of those women pass through to our paid monthly membership when they start earning an income from their businesses. This enables us to offer relevant support on a longer term basis & their financial contribution allows us to work with more women like them.
