For the first 18 months of running Brighton Digital Women we were entirely self funded. Sure, we didn’t mind spending our money on prosecco and snacks. That’s not much different from normal. But the time came to register ourselves as a not for profit business and start to formalise our reason for existing and support our goals and objectives alongside like-minded, digitally excellent businesses in Brighton.
We worked really hard over the summer to build 3 sponsorship packages for local businesses to become a part of what BDW stands for and where it’s going and in return be involved in supporting and building our community.
We called and they came!
We’re really proud of our partners and supporters and so we want to showcase them clearly for our community, those thinking about joining the community and the rest of the world. They all support and collaborate with us in different ways and without them a lot of what we do and how we do it would be impossible/very bloody hard!
Cobb our our first official money sponsor. A fantastic local digital agency producing brilliant work for brands with a sustainable edge. They saw the work that was being done with BDW to close the pay gap and bring the CEO/Director female percentage up and jumped right in. Abbie, Loz and Allegra have all spoken at Brighton Digital Women and written for us on everything from Donald Trumps social media fails to effective PPC management and transgender issues in the workplace. They’re a talented, passionate team and we’re thrilled to be working with them.
Pragmatic host our site and maintain our WordPress plugins and version updates. It’s honestly one of the most valuable things to us and helps us reach our city with meetup news, teachings and talks from our events and explore new ideas and opportunities among our digital community. They are incredible WordPress geniuses and are always doing something new, fun and educational.
Our home! Eagle Labs Brighton is also our registered business address as well as being our meetup home. The great team there help us out by hosting us every month, getting us set up for talks and spreading the word on SoMe channels. They’re the best.
