Case study: One Roof Women co-working space supports women entrepreneurs

One Roof is a co-working space that supports women entrepreneurs at every stage of their entrepreneurial journey.

Run by women, for women.

One Roof's founders recognise the persisting gender gap in entrepreneurship. They're on a mission to close that gap and support women to thrive in business.

One Roof Women is a co-working space that supports women-led businesses. They aim to provide everything a female entrepreneur needs to thrive under one roof.

One Roof is home to 70 businesses, over 1000 square metres of space, in Southbank. The businesses include tech, gaming, fashion, finance, health, education and recruitment.

They also have a large event space. Their events focus on women and girls in business, entrepreneurship and leadership.

Creating a community

This initiative is more than just a co-working space. Community is at the core of everything One Roof offers. The businesses that operate from One Roof are grateful for all the support they receive.

Being part of the One Roof community has had an incredibly positive impact on our company.
The generous and positive energy of One Roof is what sets it apart from other co-working spaces.
The relationships and networks we have built here have helped us grow. We won’t think of working anywhere else.
We recommend it to entrepreneurs who are passionate about growing their business. It's a great and important investment!
