The MOB Nation was created to give mom-owned businesses increased visibility and opportunities to learn from each other, network, share information, and get support from other women who juggle owning a business and being a mom.
First created in 2012 as free Facebook group in the Portland, Oregon area, the MOB has grown to a national organization. The MOB has won several awards including a 2016 SCORE Small Business Championship, a 2018 nomination from Oregon Entrepreneurial Network as a Game Changer, a 2018 American Express Small Business Champion award, and 2020 Mum-Owned Business of the Year from EYMA.
