Mums in business currently contribute over £4.4 billion* to the UK economy – the number one job and community site for professional working mothers – is launching a brand new Business Zone to give working parents all the tools they need to start up their own business or franchise.

The Business Zone is being launched as a direct result of a survey carried out by that revealed 69% of its audience was interested in finding out about setting up their own business.

With in-depth articles and interviews on key business topics, this new section on the site will offer business ideas, support and advice, plus inspiring stories from mums who have already set up on their own. There will also be a useful directory that features business and franchise opportunities, and access to business support services.

Mums in business currently contribute over £4.4 billion* to the UK economy and are widely recognised as the largest growth area in the start up arena. However, it is hard for them to find all of the information that they require in one place; tailored to their needs as a working parent and addressing the fact that typically the ultimate motivator for them is the desire for flexibility and work/life balance.

Gillian Nissim, Founder of, says: “The Business Zone directly targets working mums running their own business, wishing to start their own business, or who are looking to start their own business with a franchise, capturing the audience at the very beginning of their journey.

“It is designed to help working mums find their perfect business opportunity by providing all the necessary information and support to get started in one central place on our website. We currently have some exciting sign-up offers for businesses and franchises, who may wish to tap into the fantastic potential of this new section of our site.”

The official launch of the Business Zone will take place at Live on March 27, 2012, at The Business Design Centre, Islington.
