    Full time entrepreneur to proud business owner

    After combining being an entrepreneur and an employee at the same time for over a decade, Suzanne took the leap and became a full time entrepreneur. Her first goal: take her successful Learning & Development business Doors Open – that she had been running for almost 10 years – to the next level.

    About 5 months into her entrepreneurship, working many hours from home or from the occasional coffee bar, she started to feel lonely and uninspired.

    That’s when she started looking for a coworking space. But none of the spaces she visited felt like the right fit. “So why don’t I start my own one?” She couldn’t get the idea out of her head anymore.

    Fast forward. Five months later, on December 1st 2017, she is holding the key to the Javastraat 281 in The Hague in her hands. Already dozens of women showed interest and signed up for a trial day.

    The doors are open!

    In only 2 weeks the former brokers office was transformed into a cosy, inspiring hub. On the 1st of January 2018, the Female Hub officially opened and became the place where not only Suzanne, but so many other women would soon feel at home.

    Brand new events

    The Female Hub is not just a coworking space… it’s also a co-learning space! And what better way to enhance and encourage the co-learning element than by creating new events for Hubbers as well as other passionate entrepreneurs to take part in.

    Doors Open Female Hub came up with the only networking drink that’s actually fun and useful; Bubbels & Babbels!

    They also implemented monthly masterclasses with a whole variety of different themes – Dreams to Actions, Personal Leadership, Social Media Photography, More Business with LinkedIn, How To Build a Kick-ass Brand, Crowdfunding Like a Pro, and so much more!

    And last but not least, The Female Hub presented The Hague with a Boost Your Business programme! A unique and exclusive 3 day programme for 8 ambitious power women that want to bring out the best in themselves through brainstorm sessions, coaching sessions, masterclasses, entrepreneurial tours, and lots of other tools to help you to the next level!
