Co-Women Events and Membership

Co-Women: we're different.

Social events, networking and membership for forward thinking, weird business women.

“Networking makes me cringe”

I hear you on this, loud and clear. Women need connections formed from integrity. Valuable time spent actually getting to know a person, not forced, fake environments where all anyone says is “what do you do then?” before shoving a business card in your hand. You need to look at Co-Women as a place where networking and solid business connections happen naturally, miraculously whilst you’re having fun. You won’t ever be expected to put yourself on the spot and pitch your business with us. You are 100% welcome to talk about what motivates you each day, what you had for breakfast and to share a dirty joke or two because we like an inappropriate titter!

“I’m so new in my business, I find female entrepreneur groups intimidating”

Every single woman at Co-Women was new once. All members remember where they came from and pass on nothing but encouragement and total respect. No one here denies that starting a business is hard. Period. When we say we’re here to support you, we mean it. No clique. No bullshit.

“I work in the adult industry so l won’t fit in or be taken seriously”

Co-Women celebrates diversity and totally endorses sex work as work. You are valid, you are supported and you belong here.

“I don’t know anyone, and I struggle to meet new people”

No scary intros, no hard sell pitches, and if you feel uneasy at the start, pull up a chair next to me while you suss us out.

“My business hasn’t made a profit yet, therefore I’m not established enough to be here”

Your bank account has absolutely NOTHING to do with your value as a woman, friend, entrepreneur and human being. We want to know YOU, not your wallet.

“I’ve nothing to wear!”

Ah ok you’ve got me there! All I can say to this one is I’m sure you look gorgeous in whatever you have already darling! I’ll admit I can’t help with wardrobe dilemmas but what I can do is bring genuine, real women together for connections that matter.
