What is a Crunchmom?


We define a crunchmom as a woman driven by success, understanding that it’s all about balance and boundaries. We created Crunchmoms to help all women – moms and aspiring moms – find time and space to invest in themselves.




Great, what are the requirements to join?


Easy! If you are a driven mom or aspiring mom with strong career ambitions, this is the group for you. We’re starting out in the Middle East but welcome members from all over the world.




How much does it cost to be a member?


We offer great opportunities through community and content through our free Basic Membership, with value-packed benefits for paid members at prices starting from just US$15. Our aim is to boost female-led growth in the Middle East and beyond, so we're always offering new and unique ways to make that happen. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.




What if I’m not ready to pay yet?


No worries, we're always here when the time is right for you. We have a very affordable Explorer Membership package to help get you started, which is available at just US$15 for a limited time only. If you're still not ready, we offer a FREE Basic Membership that keeps you connected with weekly content and an opportunity to view our events.




I don’t have a babysitter? Are kids allowed at your meetup?


We really want our time together to be focused on investing in yourself but, of course, children are always welcome. We’re still searching for kid-friendly co-working spaces so, at the moment, there’s limited entertainment for little ones.




Where can I find you?


We host regular meetups every Sunday in Dubai from 9 am to 1 pm, where members can co-work (work together), listen to talks and workshops by the best in the business, or simply get connected to other amazing crunchmoms. Join us this month at Remaliya Cafe & Restaurant located in Dubai Ladies Club. We have so much more lined up for you this year, so watch this space and visit our events page for updates!




What do you offer members?


A whole lot, but it’s all about what YOU want. If you’re seriously considering a new job, we’ll invite you to exclusive talks for career-enhancing tips and tricks, and introduce you to other moms who can help provide the boost you need. If you want to open your own business and be your own boss, we’ll connect you to our star startup moms. We’re going back to basics, emphasizing one-to-one connections within the Crunchmoms community of talented moms who are making it happen. We’re all here for you.




Are you open to collaborations?


Yes, yes, yes. We’re always open to new ideas, partnerships and collaboration opportunities. We’re passionate about helping others, so if you feel the same, let's chat. Email our founder at julie@crunchmoms.com
