Tracy Preston, a British expat and mom of two girls, is also an entrepreneur and founder of @mummyista_maternity. She says, she’s known founders Nancy and Lara since the beginning of Cloudhoods. “For my business, it was a perfect match. Not only was their audience within my target, but also the events they had done were very professional and so much fun. As a mumpreneur, I had the opportunity to showcase my products to a wide diversity of women in the UAE,” said Tracy.
Dr. Supriya Chauhan, was a new mom in a new country with aspirations to start a business. Attending one of Cloudhoods events, she recalled her experience: “ It was exceptionally inspiring to watch these mums feeding their babies, caring for them, and managing international businesses. I hesitantly asked for help and guidance, on where to start to establish my own trade. To my surprise, the community welcomed me with a great response, through networking and social media exposure. Having got several clients, there has been no looking back ever since. Cloudhoods introduces us to this world of a powerhouse, making motherhood a happier journey,” said Dr. Supriya.
“Cloudhoods is a fantastic application supporting mom-entrepreneurs. They helped us in promoting our business (The Felt Project). We’ve had a great succession in collaboration with Cloudhoods’ promotional campaigns focused on building awareness for our brand and its concepts. So glad we have their team’s support in enhancing mentorship and inspiration among the community!”- says Fatima Ustad, is a mom of one boy from India, also founder of @thefeltproject.
“A wonderful platform for mothers to connect with other mothers on a personal, as well as professional levels. They have a beautiful way of showcasing essential topics presented and covered by experts in a very easy-to-absorb and engaging way,” says Agne Skutelis, mom of two girls from Lithuanian, and founder of @pomdelapom.
“As an artist and an entrepreneur, Cloudhoods opened the door to connect with amazing souls. I had the opportunity to introduce my business to many women in the Middle East, to inspire others, and get inspired!” says Alina K. from Romanian-Lebanese, founder of @alinakjewelry, and mother of a daughter.
In UAE alone, Cloudhoods has a network of 10,000 superwomen, that can connect based on their interests, kid’s age, and neighbourhoods. Whether it is to organise a playdate, grab a coffee or privately discuss a worrisome issue, Cloudhoods moms are an incredible support system.
