CONNECT Event, 6 degrees

A new partnership between Council and the Coffs Harbour, Sawtell, Woolgoolga and Northern Beaches Chambers of Commerce aims to connect emerging business owners with established business experts to help grow and strengthen our local economy.

Run through Council’s ‘6 degrees’ initiative, CONNECT will host monthly events to allow new startups and established businesses the chance to share their passion and make connections in a casual and welcoming setting.

“The Chamber is excited by the opportunity to work with 6 degrees and assist new business ideas,” said Ray Smith, President Coffs Harbour Chamber of Commerce. “Assisting emerging business leaders with their needs is a key activity of the Chamber and we look forward to seeing positive business results from the 6 degrees CONNECT program.”

Emerging business people will be invited to tell their story at the events and engage with their fellow entrepreneurs through shared discussions, positive feedback and learned experiences.

“Engaging the knowledge and skills of existing business owners with the passion and enthusiasm of new business ideas is a fantastic way to grow our local business economy,” explained Fiona Barden, Council’s Section Leader, Industry and Destination Development. “6 degrees is excited to facilitate this connection and opportunity.”

People with innovative ventures as part of existing businesses, or as a new business, would be very welcome and the events are also open to all members of the local business community.
