Unstoppable Female Forces: The Future of Online Business
In 2015, there was a 46% increase in the number of women business operators over the past two decades in Australia*. Women are starting online businesses and revolutionising industries at an exponential rate. One Roof and Pin Payments are proud to bring this special event that will celebrate and spotlight women who are paving the way in building fast growing and scalable online businesses.
This FREE panel event will feature 4 stand out and well known speakers who represent unstoppable female forces in the online business world.
Moderated by Jess Rhufus the panel will cover:
- What makes the online world and ability to scale so exciting and how to harness this potential
- The challenges that often are not talked about with online (security issues, customer service issues, manufacturing and distribution issues)
- How these women and their businesses have come out on top through the pandemic
- Tips for launching and scaling ecommerce and online businesses
- Successful marketing campaigns, partnerships and growth strategies we can learn from
- Their greatest successes and failures and what we can learn from their experiences
- Exciting future trends in the online and digital space
Pin Payments are also sponsoring access to 12 months of business support through One Roof’s memberships, for 5 women-led businesses. Each business owner has the opportunity to elevate a fellow female founder, creating a positive domino effect of much-needed access to business resources, coaching, networks and more for women in business.

Moving from Dunedin to Melbourne in 2009, Anna developed the company from her bedroom with just $50 to her name. A few years, and a patented formula later, Kester Black was born with six, vegan and cruelty-free shades to choose from. As the first beauty brand in the world to be B-Corp certified, the brand is no stranger to innovation; showing no signs of slowing in 2022.
