More Than a Co-working Space – One Roof Women

One Roof recognises the persisting gender gap in entrepreneurship and is on a mission to close that gap and support women to thrive in business.

One Roof Women (One Roof) is Australia’s leading co-working space dedicated to supporting women-led business. Their mission is to create female centric co-working hubs across Australia and around the world, providing everything a female entrepreneur needs to thrive under one roof. In just over two years the company has tried, tested and proven this concept in Melbourne, Sydney, Los Angeles and New York. Working to engage and support a global community of 10,000+ women, the initiative is more than a co-working space. One Roof is an entire ecosystem providing targeted support.

One Roof’s greatest success story has been their Victorian based location. Located in Southbank and with the support of Central Equity, they have occupied over 1000sqm of space. They are home to 70 businesses across a range of industries including tech, gaming, fashion, finance, health, education and recruitment. One Roof boasts a large event space which is positioned as the go-to space for all events focused on women and girls in business, entrepreneurship and leadership.

Community is at the core of everything One Roof offers. The businesses that operate from One Roof are glowing with gratitude for all the support they have and continue to receive.

“Being part of the One Roof community has had an incredibly positive impact on our company. Aside from the great facilities and location, 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 has helped us grow and we won’t think of working anywhere else. We definitely recommend it to entrepreneurs who are passionate about growing their business as it is a great and important investment!”

Sheryl Thai, Cofounder & CEO at The League of Extraordinary Women, Owner of Cupcake Central.

One Roof’s newest program is One Roof Plus, a three month entrepreneurial support program dedicated to accelerating the growth of early stage women-led businesses. Women need ongoing support at the critical early stages to build strong, sustainable businesses. Rather than continually attempting to fit women into a male paradigm, One Roof PLUS is about creating something completely new and tailored.

One Roof has morphed into an entire ecosystem, supporting women and girls at every stage of their entrepreneurial journey. Access to: a carefully designed and affordable shared workspace;, targeted business support including accelerators and masterminds; meditation and mindfulness activities; curated connections to a global community; and high class mentors, are just a sampling of what One Roof has to offer. Run by women, for women.
