Community Spotlight – MOBA

Digital Workshop Center is home to many organizations and meetups. There is plenty of space for meeting and greeting. Our space has a classroom with all the latest and greatest technology so your meeting will be smooth and presented in a modern format. MOBA is just one of the many groups that hold community meetings here. Learn more about them. 1)What is your organization? I’m Jahna Eichel. I started MOBA when I moved to Colorado from NYC. I had a very small granola company at the time and my branding/marketing consulting firm was just getting off the ground. I kept meeting mothers around town with small “side businesses”. My focus was to connect these ladies to one another, to inspire them to legitimize their business and to bring in leaders in the community who could help these ladies learn DIY marketing techniques that could help them find their target market and ideal customer base while building their brand, and their identity in a like minded community. 2)What is the focus of MOBA? MOBA Helps entrepreneurs build better businesses through support, empowerment and advocacy. Northern Colorado’s community building network for parents in business and their supporters. Through educations and collaboration they offer tools and support needed to grow your market reach. MOBA offers a network of small business supporters, community  advocacy and b2b connections. MOBA is for collaboration not competition. They are small business advocacy personified.   3)How did you get started? I started MOBA in early 2013. The first few months were spent getting to know the Northern Colorado Community of women and parents who owned, or had hopes of owning a business or becoming an entrepreneur. As an organization we’ve been through a few policy changes to weave through the ebb and flow of the changes of the parent entrepreneur community- in 2016 we became a membership free organization that’s core purpose is to be a safe space for women and parent entrepreneurs to meet and network. As a business owner I have spent the last 3 years developing my brand here, as well as building Northern Colorado’s first professional music rehearsal studio and multimedia facility. 4) What are your goals and missions? MOBA has been such a fulfilling journey that has helped countless ladies in the Northern Colorado community develop their tribe. My hopes for the years ahead is to create a community of entrepreneurs who will continuously thrive and develop their brands and businesses here. Having a thriving business is not something that is easily acquired and MOBA’s journey forward is to find the individuals who have the passion, the ingenuity and the stick-to-itiveness to run the marathon, not just the sprint. The success of MOBA is dependent on the community of moms in business to continue to grow, learn and connect. 5)How did you find Digital Workshop Center ? Digital Workshop is such an incredible business model. Their value to the community of entrepreneurs is limitless and Stu & Megan have been so supportive of MOBA’s mission by allowing us to use their beautiful facility for meetings. We hope to expand our offerings through the DWC in the future. During a lunch and learn where I was hosting a work life balance seminar, The attendees were so fun and involved that it was hard to wrap up the afternoon. I could have stayed there another hour just answering questions and enjoying getting to know all who came! DWC sponsors community events and classrooms. You can also rent our space for private meetings. Find out more here Book an...
