Women entrepreneurs in Montreal now have a new space to call their own, thanks to a partnership between The Scotiabank Women Initiative and Clickspace, Canada’s leading e-commerce hub. Plans revealed the city’s first dedicated office space for women entrepreneurs will be in the heart of Ahuntsic-Cartierville’s Chabanel district.
The inspiration behind the initiative
The exclusive space was built to support entrepreneurs at every stage of their business journey. It includes amenities such as bright, airy private offices, meeting rooms, a shared kitchen space, and a rooftop lounge. In addition, there is a podcast and photography studio and a 3PL logistics and fulfillment service. This project aims to give women in business equal access to opportunities to thrive in a safe and supportive environment with their peers and mentors. The members will also benefit from a calendar full of engaging programming and educational workshops, as well as subsidized pricing for all services.
This space marks a second collaboration between Clickspace and The Scotiabank Women Initiative. The initial partnership helped debut the successful Ladies Who Launch event series for women entrepreneurs featuring guest speakers like Canadian women business leaders Daniele Henkel (Henkel Media) and Virginie Roy (Proud Diamond).
“We feel proud to partner with The Scotiabank Women Initiative and bring the Ladies Who Launch event series to life in a new and innovative way,” said Margaux Chetrit, managing director of Clickspace. “ClickSpace is more than just an office. It’s a business community where women can come together to network, collaborate, grow their businesses and have the confidence to speak their mind.”
“We are proud to be a partner of this space for women. We believe it will make a significant impact on women entrepreneurs in Montreal,” said Ana Marinescu, senior manager of The Scotiabank Women Initiative in Québec. “The Scotiabank Women Initiative has a commitment to supporting women-owned and women-led businesses. Clickspace was a natural extension of that commitment. And we believe this space is an important step in advancing our joint mission of creating more opportunities for women to succeed.”
The exclusive office space will open in Spring 2023. The women’s space is currently accepting membership applications from women entrepreneurs in Montreal. With its top-tier amenities and support, the space promises to be a valuable resource for women looking to take their businesses to the next level.
