The Women’s Enterprise Hub Sparkbrook is Officially Open – Come and See Us!

Women across Birmingham can now take advantage of the space and business support on offer from the new Women’s Enterprise Hub in Sparkbrook. Our aim is to help women gain the confidence and skills they need to aim high and realise their full potential in business.  The Hub will be managed by iSE with Birmingham City Council as the landlord.

We have been operating a Women & Enterprise programme on a virtual basis over the past year, while the Hub was being created.  During that time we have supported over 100 women to either start up or develop a business.  We now have a wonderful environment at the Hub offering small business units, large meeting rooms and flexible hot desks and we look forward to being able to support even more women in the year ahead.

We were delighted that three of the women we have supported – Naomi Robinson from The House Nannies and Michelle Smith and Mariam Yate from Second Pedals – agreed to speak at the official opening event alongside Councillor Sir Albert Bore, who unveiled a plaque and helped me cut into a celebration cake!  You can read their inspiring words here see some pictures from the event here.

We have a lively programme of events planned and welcome men and women to attend these or to use our space for meetings and training sessions.  For further information go to the Women & Enterprise website, send mail for specific enquiries email  or call 0121 663 1711.

We hope to see you soon!
