PERIOD PACKS™ EARNS PRESTIGIOUS POSITION AS A LEADING MOM-OWNED BUSINESS
North Andover Gift Box Company Ranks Amid Top 200 of StartupNation.com’s Entrepreneur Competition
NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. (5.3.2012) – Period Packs, Inc., a Massachusetts-based theme gift box company which aims to bring a sense of celebration and understanding about the onset of menses to young ladies around the world and pamper postnatal mothers, has been ranked among a prestigious list of the nation’s top mom-owned businesses. Announced this week, Period Packs was selected from thousands of contestants entered in StartupNation.com’s 2012 Leading Moms in Business competition — sponsored by Web.com and Sam’s Club.
More than 350,000 votes were cast in support of the 2012 contestants, reflecting immense interest in moms building businesses at the same time they tend to their families. “There has been a sea of change among moms who come to realize that adding entrepreneurship to their lives brings exhilaration and immense gratification, not to mention supplemental—sometimes primary—income to their families in these dicey economic times,” said Rich Sloan, chief startupologist and co-founder of StartupNation.
The 2012 Leading Moms in Business ranking highlights some of the dominant trends, motivations and attributes among moms in business including:
- A great eye for providing attractive discounts, coupons, savings and value, all especially important to consumer moms of the recession era.
- A likelihood to come up with innovative products and solutions to address the challenging maze of motherhood. It’s an environment that demands resourcefulness.
- Conscience-driven business, where “doing well” is just fine, but the real rush comes from doing good.
- The attraction of being your own boss looms large for moms wanting to take control they just can’t find in a day job.
- Sustainable solutions and responsible business practices are increasingly paramount.
- Making the most of social media for business benefit is seemingly a birthright for the socially adept moms.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be ranked among so many superior mom-owned businesses across the nation, but even more proud to learn that we have such a supportive demographic of clients and fans who recognize the value in what we do,” said Wendy Bulawa Agudelo, chief maxi of Period Packs, Inc. “Our hearts are filled with appreciation–which will fuel us to further build upon what we’ve already accomplished to date.”
