香港創業媽媽將於本年正式推行首屆MOMs4MOMs媽媽創業家培育計劃。該計劃將邀請香港各階層媽媽們參與一起學習和交流。計劃的特色亦會迎合不同國籍和階層媽媽的需要,一起將透過工作坊及工作計劃加以師友輔導,讓媽媽們能夠學習更多知識去面對當母親和企業家的挑戰:由自身改變、終身學習、健康生活、維繫關係、平衡生活以及保護環境多方面探討。完成計劃的學員可將於香港創業媽媽下年五月的旗艦活動當中介紹她們的工作計劃。而最佳的學員更可獲邀加入香港創業媽媽也可以參加實習機會,開展她們的事業。

Mothers are often neglected with learning opportunities; mothers should be granted with all the possibilities in their journey of discovery, unlearning and relearning.    We are proud to pioneer the first cohort of MOMs4MOMs Fellowship Program to bring to moms from all walks of life together in learning more Motherhood and Entrepreneurship.  We are also delighted to offer Internship opportunities to the most outstanding fellows from the program

Duration: 9 months (September 2020 to May  2021)

Theme for 2020: Embracing Motherhood ~ without boundaries 

Seasoned trainers will be invited to conduct a 3 hours workshop on the two topics for each module once a month.    These modules are designed specifically for moms to address their challenges and to integrate motherhood and entrepreneurship together.    The 6 modules will be:

In May, fellows will be showcasing their products and pitching at HKM flagship event.  

Beneficiaries:

  • 40 fellows of diverse education, ethnicity and cultural background
  • All female – mothers preferred.   

If i look at the need for marginalized Ethnic Minorities, there is a need for so much. There is a need for women who are involved in the education for their children to look at the provision of books, extracurricular activities, the provision of helping each other. Only when you are in that position as a mother, do you think of what your children need and what your household might need and therefore you can think of creative ways for solving for those problems.
