15 January 2015 New Year, New Home

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.”

 

The 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 more details or call Council on 02 6648 4087.
