Women’s Enterprise and Community Hub

Our Women’s Enterprise and Community Hub (WECH) is a hive of enterprising activity on the Ladypool Road in Sparkbrook, providing modern, purpose-built space for women-led businesses in the city.

ABOUT WECH

The WECH first opened in November 2015 with support from an ERDF project supporting local women into enterprise. Today, the Hub is a vibrant space for women, providing modern office space, contemporary meeting rooms, business incubation and studio shopfronts for women-led businesses in a variety of sectors.

The Hub is a focus in the Sparkbrook community, providing a safe environment for women to come together and explore enterprise.

OUR COMMUNITY

The WECH is a supportive community for women to share, collaborate and motivate each other to be the best they can each be. There is always someone to chat to and draw inspiration from, and many of the WECH staff have their own enterprises so understand that sometimes we all need a little extra encouragement!

The WECH is managed by iSE CIC, a social enterprise organisation that is itself run by a woman Chief Executive, Sarah Crawley. The WECH specialises in all aspects of enterprise, particularly social enterprise start-up support, and the all-female team have many years’ experience supporting women to start and grow their own businesses into sustainable enterprises.
