Podcast: The inspiration behind Enterprise Nation's Female Start-up of the Year

Posted: Wed 2nd Nov 2016

It's time for episode 25 of our podcast, the Small Business Sessions.

Thumbnail Rbtmr 9261 (1)As an exhausted Mum, Mel Bound was desperate to regain a bit of time to herself and put a post on a Facebook group one evening to see if anyone else fancied joining her for a jog in the park after she'd put the kids to bed. 75 women showed up from just that one post and now her This Mum Runs community boasts over 4,000 members.

This Mum Runs focuses on creating a space where time strapped mothers can regain a bit of headspace by doing exercise together without feeling intimidated or under pressure to loose weight or get fit. Her success was rewarded on 21 October when she was crowned Female Start-up of the Year at our Festival of Female Entrepreneurs. We recorded a podcast with Mel before she took to the stage to pitch and this Small Business Session oozes with Mel's infectious enthusiasm about what she's getting up to and why she's doing it. Inspiring and then some!
