We are a Social Enterprise
Community is at the heart of everything we do. The profit we generate helps us fund free support services to women across the UK who are facing financial hardship.
We use our profits for good
Our profits help our community excel & achieve their dreams. We use our profits to fund our mentor & coaching scheme, start-up funds & much, much more.
We are on a mission
We know that Women make excellent business owners & we know that sometimes they face unique barriers that stop them from doing just that. So we created a service that works for women like us
We know how hard it can be to start a business
...because in 2015 our founder Ceri, was doing just that. Armed with a great idea & a five-month-old baby that never wanted to sleep, she started to search for support to start her business.
Three months later her business was trading but she felt more alone than ever. Ceri was unable to access the help & support she was searching for because there weren’t any support organisations offering to help mums with younger children. She felt excluded from existing business networks & was often bumping up against the all too familiar barriers of childcare responsibility & financial struggles. The one thing she repeated to herself during those years was "It shouldn’t have to be this hard to get started".
Ceri spent over two years campaigning for specific support for parents who wanted to start businesses & when change was too slow she decided to step in herself & do something about it.
Mubo was built on the belief that anyone can start & grow a brilliant business. It was built on the belief that support should meet you where you are.
It was built on the belief that if more women are empowered to make a change to their financial lives, it causes a ripple effect that can impact their confidence, their family life & the communities they live in.
We’ve worked with over 1000 Women.
We’ve been working with female entrepreneurs since 2019. In that time we have completed seven rounds of our LaunchPad Business Accelerator, Held over 100 networking sessions, collaborated with some amazing brands & partnered with housing providers, local & National government to make a real difference to women who are thinking about starting or scaling a business.
Being part of Mubo & heeding Ceri’s advice allowed me to get perspective, clarity &
focus for my business. There were clear guidelines set out for me to follow & I was
supported all the way through.
Ceri is my go-to-girl when it comes to business advice, strategy, pitches & planning.
Ceri taught me to look for opportunities & create my own vision for how I want my business.
Ceri is on the side of all women & mums who want to fulfil that dream of starting their own
