We are so excited to announce that Miyo has been recognised as one of Inside Small Business's Top 50 Small Business Leaders for 2017. Selected by Inside Small Business and a panel of small business experts, the annual Top 50 Report celebrates the diversity and entrepreneurship of Australia’s small-business owners.

Australia has approximately 1,900,000 small businesses (deemed as a business that employs 20 or less people) registered with ASIC (Australian Securities and Investment Commission). In Victoria alone, there are more than 542,000 small businesses, so to be shortlisted within the top 50 leaders is quite the accomplishment.

Of course, behind every leader there is a team of just as wonderful and magical people. We are so fortunate to have an incredibly passionate, skilled team at Oishi-m. Behind the scenes we challenge each other and try and bring forth the perspective of what's best for Oishi-m at each crossroad of decision-making. It is an incredible achievement to be highlighted as one of the Top 50 business leaders from across Australia. Thanks to all our customers, suppliers and work colleagues for making this a reality.

Come along to hear her speak about encompassing the up's and the down's of her business journey, and building a brand from humble beginnings to shipping all over the world.

Big love :)
