Have you ever laid awake at night, nursing a small baby or listening for your child’s next cough, and come up with the best.idea.ever? Or maybe an awesome idea came to you as you were running (and enjoying your few moments of peace and quiet.) We all know that sleep-deprived moms are some of the most creative thinkers out there! And sleep-deprived running moms are a force to be reckoned with.
OK, so have your awesome idea (and actually remembered it at the end of your run). Now what? How do you go from great idea to creating your product?
Enter MUMZY, www.MUMZY.com, the first crowdfunding site designed specifically for moms. And MUMZY isn’t just for raising capital, it also offers a community where moms can give feedback on projects.
So, you’ve got your great idea, what next? (And no, your idea does not have to be specifically mom related, so if you have a running product you want to fund, go for it!)
Anyways, first things first, you need to sign up with www.MUMZY.com, either with a username and password or with your Facebook account. Then create your project. You’ll want to have a meaningful name, a good description, and if you can, a video about your idea.
Once you’ve filled out all of the information, you will need to wait for your project to be approved. MUMZY approves most projects quickly, so you should shortly be on your way!
After approval, share your project with friends and family. Simple! And while you are there, check out the other projects and feel free to offer suggestions. That’s another part of www.MUMZY.com – moms helping moms bring their ideas to fruition.
Once your capital is raised, MUMZY is unique in that it helps with next steps in order to keep the project momentum going.
Sound cool? Now is the time to take that idea you have and run with it! The first 100 people who post a project to will have a chance to win $1,000 back towards their project’s funding goal. Since www.MUMZY.com is such a new site and is just getting going, they would love to hear your feedback, ideas, and suggestions and who knows, you might get some surprise-and-delight recognition and prizes!

So, are you feeling inspired? Do you have an idea for something we all can’t live without? I know I’d love a winter running hat that doesn’t push my sunglasses into my head…
