WHAT WE DO

One Roof PLUS is a holistic entrepreneurship support program dedicated to early stage female entrepreneurs. The program provides world class entrepreneurship training to help you refine and accelerate the growth of your business venture while also giving you access to an inspiring and supportive network of female entrepreneurs and facilitated introductions to investors. 

A BIG thank you to Pickford Media for filming the program and capturing the great moments! 

WHY WE EXIST

While co-working, accelerators and incubators are rapidly growing trends to support the growth of businesses and start-ups, they still unfortunately fail to cater to the unique needs of female entrepreneurs. Existing programs that make up the startup ecosystem are predominantly run and participated in by men. 

More women are starting businesses in Australia with 1 in 4 startups founded by women (up from 1 in 6 in 2011), but few are actually scaling - 93% of Australian women business operators are working in small business and less than 5% of venture capital backed companies are women led. 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.

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT

Female Centric: Run by female entrepreneurs to support female entrepreneurs. 

Holistic: Integrates the 3 key components of mind, body and business. 

Peer Review: Globally recognised, tried & tested peer review curriculum.

Experienced experts: We have forged an impressive global network of mentors.

Investment introductions: Connect you to potential investment opportunities. 

Office space: 3-months access to One Roof, the hub for female entrepreneurs

 
 

IS ONE ROOF PLUS RIGHT FOR YOU?

We are looking for early stage women-led ventures. You must have a proof of concept and be able to demonstrate a proven need in the market for your venture. This means you already have customers and clear revenue streams. We are open to all industries and business structures. You do not have to be a tech start up. Most importantly you need to be committed to and serious about your venture.

Priya George

Director of National Cybersecurity Institute

This sort of intensive challenging of thoughts, learning new skills & collaboration with other fabulous women entrepreneurs - is exactly what I needed. I expanded my thinking, defined where I need to be & had an explosion of ideas which has shifted my thinking. I am pumped to report back what my business has achieved at the end of the three months

Susie Hopkins

Founder of THRIVE Service for Wellbeing

Having just started the One Roof PLUS program, it’s unbelievable how much clearer the steps are that I need to take to get more customers & take this business to the next level. The support I’m getting is going to mean I can achieve my business goals so much sooner than if I was working on this at home in isolation as I was doing before

Jen Fein

Founder of YouLi

I appreciated the focus that a structured program gave me, forcing me to answer questions I may have been avoiding & getting confidence by saying & repeating my pitch in front of a supportive yet critical audience
