Mom Your Business aims to support Black/Brown female entrepreneurs based in Philadelphia. After the lockdown, the organization launched the Founders to Founders: Business Accelerator Program and opened a coworking space.
Founder Tanya T. Morris started Mom Your Business in 2017, after years of experience in nonprofit management. With the mission of supporting Black/Brown female entrepreneurs, the organization provides mentoring, coaching, and advocacy. These resources help women blend between family, business, or occupation while growing their businesses.
Initially, Morris launched several events dedicated to working mothers and women. After that, she began to develop a program for Black/Brown female entrepreneurs with families. The aim is to blend all these elements instead of balancing them.
Prior to the COVID outbreak, Mom Your Business was creating a coworking space to provide mentorship and networking in different industries. They launched the Founders to Funders: Business Accelerator Program during the lockdown. The initiative supports independent entrepreneurs with courses, collaborations, and tools.
Thanks to the accelerator program, Mo Your Business secured a coworking space in the heart of Philadelphia. In addition, the organization promotes events like The Holiday Link Up! The pop-up shop event for rising businesses includes a $50,000 first prize competition for female entrepreneurs. In partnership with Zenith Wealth Partners and Women’s Way, Mom Your Business is committed to promoting initiatives for Black/Brown women.
Following the coworking space trend, this initiative for Black/Brown female entrepreneurs exemplifies the importance of networking and business accelerators to support local entrepreneurs.
