The pair are finalists in The AusMumpreneur Awards, which recognises Australian mums achieving outstanding success in business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation.
Ms Bryden, a mother of two from Stirling, said she was thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase their business in the same arena as the other incredible nominees.
�It is humbling to be nominated alongside them and I’m sure it will be an incredible learning experience that will help us improve our business,� she said.
�I hope that being nominated for these awards will shine a spotlight on the business that mum and I have been working on for the past four years and hopefully lead to some new opportunities.
�Our product solves the frustrating conundrum of having to choose between being sun-smart or stylish, and the response has been overwhelming.�
Mrs Intini, whose experience as a clinical theatre nurse inspired the booming business, said she had seen skin cancer sufferers avoiding sun-safety because existing products compromised their style or gave them hat-hair.
�A global search unearthed a gap in the market for a modern sun umbrella with appropriate UV protection, so we took on the challenge to develop one,� Ms Bryden said.
�We�ve transformed the traditional parasol into an innovative and stylish accessory that provides UV protection.�
The awards are decided by public vote, with winners announced at an awards dinner in Melbourne on September 5.
