Entrepreneur Pitches Company, Promotes Mom-owned Businesses

Austin, TX November 5, 2012 — As founder of one of four companies participating in PreAccelerate, a  "specialized incubator bootcamp designed to help you take your idea from napkin to reality", sponsored by Napkin Venture, Tech Ranch and MWR Legal, Trish Morrison knows she has competition. "I don't know how many mom-related, conference-based businesses have pitched investors before but I'm assuming not many. At first glance, moms aren't exciting or trendy or techie enough to even be considered."

She's quick to point out however, that moms make 85% of the buying decisions for their households controlling more than $2.1 trillion in consumer spending in the US. Mom entrepreneurs are also one of the fastest growing contributors to the business community. They are online and on their mobile  phones more than any other demographic. "Moms mean business," says Morrison, we shouldn't be taken lightly."

Demo Day is November 13, 2012 at 6 p.m. at Tech Ranch and is open to investors, entrepreneurs and press. Companies will compete for $5000. Other businesses in the program include edMosphere, Tellapathy, and The Shop. Demo Day finalizes the six week bootcamp, which offers mentorships, legal counseling and tools to help take businesses from idea to reality.
