Testimonials

We want to make a change

Talking from experience

“The HIVE is a unique space designed to cultivate a strong community where women can connect, collaborate and empower each other to develop and excel in business.

In North Lanarkshire, only 2.2% of women are self-employed compared to 9% of men. We want to change that by providing the environment and support to enable more women to use their skills and talents to start up and grow successful businesses.

In my own experience setting up a business, a facility like The HIVE would have been invaluable.”

Louise Roarty, Depute Leader, Councillor

“We are delighted to have supported North Lanarkshire Council in bringing the vision for The HIVE to fruition. As a first in Scotland, it is truly pioneering and we hope that the services provided will help women from across the region to fulfil their aspirations of starting and growing sustainable businesses.

Research consistently shows that women face numerous additional barriers to becoming successful business owners and the tailored, wrap-around support on offer at The HIVE will be crucial in helping women in North Lanarkshire to realise their ambitions.”

Lynne Cadenhead, Chair of Women’s Enterprise Scotland
