Antonette Golikidis of Little Innoscents has claimed the prestigious title of AusMumpreneur of the Year at the 2010 AusMumpreneur awards ceremony during the Connect2mums conference in South Bank, Brisbane on Saturday night.

Connect2Mums recognises the incredible success of Antonette’s business and how she manages her time for work and family. She sees how important it is to have a healthy balance between the two, leading to her title of AusMumpreneur for 2010.

The ceremony was an opportunity for business mums and dads to celebrate and recognise the best and brightest in the industry, acknowledging success in business, product development, services and innovation. Queensland Women minister Karen Struthers attended the gala event and Queensland Premier Anna Bligh recorded a special video message for the night.

From Australia and New Zealand mums - and some dads - were able to witness first hand their motivation and inspiration for balancing family time with their own small and successful businesses.

Mother-of-two, Antonette Golikidis, produced a wide range of Australian Certified Organic natural baby skin care products after struggling to find natural, organic and affordable products while she was pregnant.

Antonette is proud to win this prestigious award and hopes that she can inspire other mumpreneurs. She was thrilled to accept her award at the glamorous ceremony.

“This is such a huge milestone for myself and my business. To be a part of something like Connect2Mums with like-minded mums in business is very inspirational,” Ms Golikidis said.

“All that hard work and trying to spend time with our kids all pays off. I’m very excited and honoured to win this award and I hope I do Connect2Mums proud in the next year,” the excited winner said.

Dadpreneur of the Year - Daniel Gibney, Em’s 4 Kids
