Previous Accolades - AusMumpreneur
Local business woman Nicole Lander of Battlefield Sports has been selected as a finalist for the 2018 AusMumpreneur Awards in the Global Brand category.
Battlefield Sports manufactures electronic toys so players can participate in live action games.
Their patented technology has been sold to more than 500 customers across 54 countries.
The company also rents the equipment for children’s birthdays and vacation care (summer camp) activities nationwide.
The AusMumpreneur Awards presented by The AusMumpreneur Network celebrate and recognize Australian Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation.
The awards are designed to recognize the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family.
“I started the business with a few thousand dollars and an idea; to take a video game and experience it live. My business was the first to commercialize outdoor laser tag anywhere in the world,” said Nicole.
“I love being a mumpreneur because it has given me a chance to embrace my innovative ideas, experience an entrepreneurial journey, and spend time with my two kids,” she said.
Spotlight Shines on Top Business Women
“Being selected as a finalist is an honor. There is so much talent among Australian business women it is fantastic to be on the shortlist. It is recognition that Battlefield Sports is providing a compelling live gaming experience using our innovative equipment to engage kids, and the young at heart, to be more active and socially engaged.
Business is not easy and Battlefield Sports has overcome challenges but has also seen great success the company has supplied to theme parks and resorts all over the world including: MovieWorld, Australia, Hub Zero in UAE, and Hamilton Island, Australia. Most recently they have supplied “zombie laser tag” to Thorpe Park in England.
It can be challenging to run a successful business whilst raising a family and Nicole Lander gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise.
“I would encourage someone thinking about starting a new business is to give it a go! Every business has an inspiring entrepreneurial story to tell. Start your story! I particularly encourage Mumpreneurs to consider exporting. Australia is a relatively small market, especially if you have a niche product. Expanding your horizons offers huge opportunities,” she said.
