Six Degrees, the popular co-working hub and
think-tank for local entrepreneurs, home and solo workers, has a new, permanent
home at Coffs Coast Community College from February 3 2015.
“The aim of the hub is to offer a space
where people who work independently can meet, network, collaborate and meet
clients in a friendly, welcoming environment without the overheads of work
premises,” said Kristina Cooke, Acting Manager of Enterprise Coffs. “In a very
short time, Six Degrees has created a fantastic collaborative and supportive
spirit which we are looking forward to growing in the new space.
“This new location also offers great
opportunity for our members. You can’t get more central than City Square,
there’s Wi-Fi access and flexible desk space, separate breakout rooms for
one-on-one meetings with clients and collaborators, plus a casual catch-up
space to meet clients or discuss leads over coffee. It also provides easy
access to opportunities for collaboration in training and other requirements.”
Six Degrees co-working hub will be held at the Community College - Level 1, City
Square, 66-90 Harbour Drive - on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9am – 3pm.
Gordon Amann, the College’s new Manager,
said they were excited about the co-working hub establishing its base in the
College facilities. “The College has gone through a change of management and an
upgrading of facilities and will be offering a range of services, including
customised training for industry and running professional development
conferences. Six Degrees will bring over 30 local entrepreneurs in and is the
first step on the road of the College becoming a vibrant, dynamic Learning
Hub,” he said.
Current hub members come from all types of
businesses and have a wide range of skills - artisans, programmers, developers,
editors, educators, illustrators and consultants.
Being part of the Six Degrees Coworking has
value added benefits – a monthly ‘Pitch’ session where start-ups and existing
businesses with new business models to explore can present their business case
and gain feedback from a panel of local experts and lunchtime Lightning Talks
by the members to encourage the development of ideas.
The first ‘Pitch’
for 2015 is on Tuesday, February 3, at 12pm. Go to http://sixdegreescoworking.com/ for
