One Girl Band: New Space for Female Entrepreneurs

Lola Hoad is a designer based in Brighton, UK. Her main occupation is to create cards and paper goods in general. But apart from her main activities, she is engaged in several other projects like mentor enterpreneurs, being a speaker and a designer. Her latest pursue is the One Girl Band. A place that “women can come and work from somewhere other than their spare room, kitchen table or local cafe, and surround themselves with like-minded people who are in the same boat on this journey of self employment“.

I started OGB as a collective in 2015 when I had been in business for a year, and started feeling a bit isolated and lonely. When you run your own business with no team members, you can spend days not having uttered a word to any other human, and you start to crave having some ‘colleagues’.” Hoad explains. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
