Hungarian firm wins EU enterprise award
Hungary's gazdagmami.hu, which encourages business start-ups by mothers with young children, has been named the grand jury prize-winner in this year's European Enterprise Promotion Awards contest, the European Commission announced in a memo.
Gazdagmami.hu – which translates as "rich mommy" – helps mothers acquire the entrepreneurial skills and mind-set needed to start a business and make it profitable. In a press release acknowledging the prize, the National Economy Ministry said Gazdagmami.hu had organised presentations for young mothers in 64 communities around the country and in neighbouring regions last year. Making work for women sustainable alongside child-rearing is of key importance for the government, the ministry said.
