6 Degrees is founded on the concept of six degrees of separation
anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries.
And in Coffs Harbour it is even less degrees! Which means we believe it is only a matter of you putting it out there about what you need to make your business thrive and then our community of members and supporters are in the perfect position to connect you with who you need to know.
We host a variety of opportunities for you to finally connect with Kevin Bacon.
The types of regular events we host include:
COWORKING DROPIN DAYS – Get out of the home office and grow. Members are provided drop-in access to a desk, chair, wi-fi internet connection and reasonable use of printer at the CBD location ONLY.
PITCH YOUR PASSION – A pitch is when one of our members gets up and give us a 5 mins rundown on:
- their passion and their venture
- where they are up to with it at the moment
- what they need to get it moving into the future
There is a panel and members of audience who will provide some guiding words of wisdom and thought provoking questions to each of you to move forward with your venture. (10 mins each for Q&A) . You never know who is listening and how they might help in the future.
WORKSHOPS – A series of workshops facilitated by knowledge experts focusing on all aspects of lean startup, user experience and getting from idea to launch. Some of our past workhops have been run by Alan Jones of Blue Chilli, Aaron Birkby of River City Labs and Henry Cho Lean UX Expert.
SALONS – Salons are our more social evening learning opportunities. Inspired by the French 18th Century tradition “A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.” Ours are traditionally held at the Pier Hotel and involve fireside Q&A chats with our local and national talent.
