Mother's Mercado - Fall 2021

 

The Mom Economy in partnership with Shopify are searching for the most innovative, unique and community driven mother-owned businesses.  

And we want YOUR business to apply!  

According to WBENC, 4 out of 10 businesses in the U.S. are owned by women, but here’s something you may not know about them—88% of those businesses generate $100,000 or less in yearly revenue.  

This year, The Mom Economy wants to change that.  

 We are launching our third annual Mother’s Mercado in Dadeland Mall in Miami, Florida, on November 5th and 6th at the Miami mecca of fashion and dining (yeah, we know, pretty cool)!   

Keep on reading because we want you there!  

Who:  YOU (plus other mompreneurs and brands like Shopify and more) 

What:  The Mother’s Mercado: a 2-day pop-up retail experience to assist mompreneurs who have an e-commerce store and/or sell a product or good.  

By submitting your application for Mother’s Mercado, you’ll have access to our Shop Mom coworking lounge where top brands like Shopify will host hands-on workshops, breakout sessions, and other activities. 

Where: DADELAND MALL, Miami’s original and iconic shopping center 

When: Friday, November 5, and Saturday, November 6, 2021
