A place to learn, share, focus and be inspired.
A new way of learning about business, through community, knowledge sharing and radical workshops supporting personal and professional growth.
Mum's Garage is a community for people who see the role of business as supporting and transforming people and the planet, rather than just to make money.
In this community, we share and connect in ways that drive people to turn their unique skill and insights into the ventures that make an impact and are financially sustainable.
Who this community is for
Our community is open to people who:
- have a sound idea or an existing business and have demonstrated their ability to take action to move forward meaningfully towards their goals
- are prepared to give as much as they receive, by supporting others, sharing knowledge and ideas as well as asking for help when it's needed
- are building business for the good of humanity, not to exploit others or the planet.
- are curious, open-minded and don’t assume they have all the answers.
We run courses and workshops to help solve the common problems people have when starting a business.
We work with people who have been founders themselves to create this content, so what we teach is based on lived experience.
Our online community, powered by Mighty Networks, helps people to connect with other founders and startup experts whenever it's needed.
We also run events so people can connect and share knowledge in person.
Connect with the people who can help your business to grow. Our community is built around resourceful (cash strapped) early-stage business development, so we have people in our network who specialise in working with people on a tight budget.
We're exploring ways that we can help startups financially.
How it Works
You must first fill out the application form by clicking the apply button below. Then we will be in contact to introduce ourselves and provide an induction into the community so you can make yourself at home.
We host our community and digital programmes using a platform called Mighty Networks.
Once you're part of the community, you can participate in conversations, sprints, programmes, access video content and other resources.
You can also chat directly with other members, share resources, experience, wins and ask for feedback or input into some of the decisions or problems your facing.
You'll be the first to know about any events we have coming up or any opportunities we find about. In fact, most of our activities are driven by the needs of this community.

We're founders, developers, designers, videographers, marketers, content creators, HR specialists, food scientists, gelato makers, gin distillers, technologists and more.
