One Roof was born from the stark realisation that there is a persisting gender gap in entrepreneurship and that not enough women are starting and succeeding in business.
It began as a test. A pop-up co-working space in an Airbnb mansion in St Kilda. It was called One Roof to embody the idea of creating a physical hub providing everything a female entrepreneur needs to thrive under one roof. When 400 people came through the doors in just one week it was clear there was a need for a female-focused co-working space.
The Founders tested the One Roof concept in Melbourne, Sydney, Los Angeles and NYC until landing on a permanent home and headquarters in Southbank, Melbourne.
One Roof has become Australia’s leading co-working space dedicated to women-led businesses and the second you walk inside you will notice the flurry of activity. Set over a sprawling 1,000 square metres, festooned with hanging planters and colourful modernist furniture, it is the home of over 80 different startups and small businesses.
It’s here that these entrepreneurs gather to work, meet, pitch and share ideas, attend events and network with other like-minded entrepreneurs. There’s weekly legal, social media and sales support sessions, wellness workshops, meditation classes, networking events, community lunches & Friday evening drinks.
We’ve yet to organise accommodation for speakers and others visiting, however that shouldn’t stop you seeking somewhere to stay if you’re planning now.
