For Immediate ReleasePITTSBURGH
- MAY 4, 2009 - A Mother's Boutique announced today that it has been recognized as one of the top 200 mom-owned businesses in StartupNation's 2009 Leading Moms In Business Competition (http://www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-2009). The competition, sponsored by VerticalResponse, recognizes the achievements of mothers across the country who run outstanding businesses.
A Mother's Boutique is an on-line store that specializes in maternity and breastfeeding attire, nursing bras and nursing accessories. Selling to new and expectant mothers all over the world, A Mother's Boutique helps moms get what they need quickly and easily-exactly as boutique owner Judy Masucci planned it. Four years ago, Masucci herself became a new mom, and found it surprisingly difficult to locate maternity and nursing items that were suitable and stylish. Her business was started to help other moms avoid the same frustration; a solid formula that has kept her profitable in business for two years and counting.
"Moms across America were honored in this year's ranking, showing that they're capable of starting and running successful businesses while managing to balance family, career, home and self," said Rich Sloan, co-founder of StartupNation."Well over 600,000 votes were cast in support of several thousand contestants. What an incredible achievement to be named a winner, and what an inspiration for anyone looking to start their own business.
"It's challenging for anyone to start and run a successful business - particularly in this economy. These women are setting the standard for innovation and creativity," said Janine Popick, founder and CEO of VerticalResponse.
StartupNation (www.startupnation.com) launched the first annual Leading Moms in Business Competition in January with the support of VerticalResponse (www.verticalresponse.com) to recognize the achievements of mom entrepreneurs across the US. Winners were selected and ranked according to public votes accumulated from January through March, 2009. The elite 200 win bragging rights, promotional support, and digital winner's emblems recognizing their achievements as the Leading Moms in Business.About A Mother's Boutique
