Dr Vanessa Atienza-Hipolito

Dr Vanessa Atienza-Hipolito, who is the business owner of Women’s and Breast Imaging in Cottesloe Western Australia, has been honoured in two categories in the AusMumpreneur Awards 2021.

Dr Vanessa took out the gold award in the People’s Choice Awards – Making a Difference (Local Community) and the silver in the Health and Wellbeing Business category.

The awards were held at an online event where talented mums in business from all over the country gathered to support and encourage other Australian mumpreneurs.

Dr Vanessa said she was excited to be named the runner up in her categories in the 2021 AusMumpreneur Awards against such a talented group of women.

“Thank you to all AusMumpreneur judges for this acknowledgement and recognition. It is my team’s commitment to continue the legacy of Women’s and Breast Imaging to provide optimal care for women’s health in Western Australia and promote breast cancer awareness and early detection by community education. I am also thankful and grateful who made an impact in my life and journey, especially to all the wonderful people who supported and voted for me.”

Thank you Ausmumpreneur community, Katy and Peace and this community which I call it asisterhood. You are all amazing and inspirational. Congratulations to all you super mums who are making a difference in your local community and the world. You are all champions! I am celebrating your achievements!

AusMumpreneur was created to support Australian entrepreneurs like Dr Vanessa and her fellow AusMumpreneur Award winners, Peace Mitchell, cofounder of AusMumpreneur said.

“These awards are all about recognising the growing number of mums who are achieving outstanding business success while balancing motherhood.”

“I was blown away by the entrepreneurial spirit, resilience and professionalism of the award winners and I know that they will provide great inspiration for other mums considering starting their own business,” Peace said. 

This is the twelfth year the AusMumpreneur Awards have run, with the business mum community growing at lightning speed as mothers look for opportunities to join the ranks of small business owners in search of more flexibility, financial freedom and family time.

AusMumpreneur Network co-founder Katy Garner said “the awards show the passion of women who want to fulfil their entrepreneurial dreams as well as be great mums.

“Despite the pandemic the number of women starting businesses has continued to grow in the last 12 months! We are thrilled to be the number one community for mumpreneurs and proud to showcase the best and the brightest each year through these awards.” 

“We are delighted that Dr Vanessa has been recognised with these awards, she has built an outstanding business and is an inspirational role model and ambassador for mums in business everywhere. We wish her and all our amazing Ausmumpreneur Award winners every success in the coming year,” co-founder Peace Mitchell said.
