BRINGing YOU the FIRST FEMALE CENTERED Accelerator founded in Melbourne
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.
One Roof PLUS is a 12 week holistic entrepreneurship support program dedicated to early stage female entrepreneurs.
The program provides:
- world class entrepreneurship training
- access to an inspiring and supportive network of female entrepreneurs
- facilitated introductions to investors
- beautiful office space
- weekly mastermind groups all to help you refine and accelerate the growth of your business venture.
We are looking for early stage scalable 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.
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.
All meetings and coworking will take place at One Roof
Applications open TBA. Kick off meeting is Feb 5, 2019
