More than just
More than just
One Roof was born from the stark realisation that there is a persisting gender gap in entrepreneurship and 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.
Now based in Southbank, Melbourne, One Roof has become Australia's leading co-working space dedicated to women-led businesses. 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 nearly 100 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.
Our vision is to establish hubs in every major city in Australia. Every co-working space will have the key necessities including office space, childcare, event space and extensive business support to ensure you have everything you need to thrive and succeed under one roof.
We are obsessed with your success. We are a dedicated team passionate about creating a space and community of connected, supported and thriving entrepreneurs.

Nothing excites Ellie more than seeing people do what they’re passionate about. That’s why you’ll find her at farmers markets on the weekends, listening to podcasts on the commute and hanging out with One Roof members in the office. Ellie loves to chat about goals with people, which ones to crush next and what might be getting in the way. Her curiosity about what lights people up has her finding connections everywhere she goes and she loves nothing more than introducing one epic human to another.
A big thank you to our corporate supporters who, without them, One Roof wouldn't have the impact on the startup ecosystem for women-led businesses.
