I'm honored to be ranked number 67 in this competition. Being a mom and an entrepreneur is a challenging endeavor but definitely very rewarding. I hope this award inspires other women to take the leap
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) October 13, 2010
Vemayca, a woman-owned cosmetic bag company has been ranked number 67 in StartupNation.com’s 2010 Leading Moms in Business competition, sponsored by Infusionsoft.
Over 709,000 votes were cast in support of the 2010 contestants, reflecting immense interest and support for moms building businesses at the same time they're tending to their families. Started by a hardworking mother and former airline executive, Vemayca received the prestigious number 67 rank out of thousands of contestants.
“There’s been a change among moms as they’ve 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,” says Rich Sloan, chief startupologist and co-founder of StartupNation.
"I'm honored to be ranked number 67 in this competition. Being a mom and an entrepreneur is a challenging endeavor but definitely very rewarding. I hope this award inspires other women to take the leap," says Veronica Mayo, founder of Vemayca.
