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! However, the time came to register ourselves as a not for profit business and formalise our reason for existing. This is so we could support our goals and objectives alongside like-minded, digitally excellent businesses in Brighton.
We worked really hard over the summer of 2016 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!
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.
SiteVis are a great friend of ours who sponsor our events from time to time. It really helps us give our community a warm welcome and facilitates speaker fees. We’re super thrilled to have this gang on board.
SiteVis work with some pretty awesome clients and are well known for being founding organisers of the biggest SEO conference in the universe, BrightonSEO, where Founding Director Rachel and fellow BDW directors Allegra and Lana have spoken!)
