Ep 10. Mia Klitsas - 2014 Telstra Victorian Young Businesswoman of the Year.
My guest today Mia Klitsas founder and CEO of Millie & More who produce the brand Moxie. Mia is a Melbourne based entrepreneur with a passion for social entrepreneurship and women’s rights. Her “moxie” brand of women’s personal care products are a familiar sight at Woolworths, Coles, Chemist Warehouse and other major retailers locally, internationally and also online.
Whilst studying a Bachelor of Business at RMIT, Mia and her business partner identified a gap in the women's personal care market for a range of products that were not only high quality, but also stylish, feminine and conveniently packaged. At the tender age of 21, she started her business, Millie & More, in mid-2005 and launched Moxie personal care products just six months later in 2006.
In October 2014, Mia was named Telstra Young Businesswoman of the Year for Victoria and was listed as one of AFR and Westpac’s 100 Women of Influence’. Mia is an active member and board member of the global organisation 'Entrepreneur's Organisation‘ and is proud to be the key-note speaker at this year’s International Day of the Girl forum, run by Plan Australia. She also mentors students and speaks regularly at business-groups, events and schools, sharing her experiences, challenges and successes in running a growing business and brand.
