The response has been amazing since we launched in February 2019 – there is a huge appetite from business women, women in senior management positions and those rapidly climbing the career ladder to have a club where they can learn from each other, network and collaborate to keep growing, both professionally and personally.
By the end of the year, we will have a membership community of at least 100 in Exeter and will have regional representation in Bristol and London.
Six Degrees is a community-based organisation, and whilst we will be bringing in lean membership fees to pay for the administration of the group and putting on events, the intention is to continue to use funds to invest in its membership community. For example, we would love to raise money through events and sponsorship to help fund a go-getting and deserving female through a course or mentorship program that they wouldn’t ordinarily be able to fund themselves etc.
Our exclusive sponsorship network is closely aligned with Six Degrees philosophy of openness, encouragement and an entrepreneurial spirit.
What we can offer you as a sponsor:
We are asking for £750 sponsorship fee for one region. If you’d like to become a sponsor please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our first sponsor
Prydis Wealth who have stepped up to become the first organisation to sponsor Six Degrees. Sponsorship will play a pivotal role as the group grows as this will allow us to arrange bigger events and also, set up a Flourish Fund – a pot of money set aside to help members fulfil their potential. This fund could be used to help financially contribute to an Open University course or even counselling.
Liz Andrews, Director of Prydis, comments: “We are very excited to be supporting Six Degrees; collaborating to share ideas and resources for collective growth is core to the Prydis Group and this is precisely what Sarah, Louise and Linda are seeking to achieve with this community.”
