Here latest adventure is the CoveyClub, a virtual meeting place for lifelong learners. (A covey is a small flock of birds, in case you weren’t sure about the name.)
CoveyClub is a virtual and IRL (in real life) club platform built by — and for — members and has generosity and “welcomeness” at its heart. All members believe that the more you give, the more you get. Hence the CoveyClub hashtag: #LearnGetConnect.
CoveyClub was not created to replicate the More Magazine experience — but to take it to its logical digital and IRL conclusion: connecting women who feel they are living the best time of their lives.
CoveyClub reinforces its mission of supporting women in search of their dreams by serving as an affordable launch platform for solopreneurs and small businesses who can come to CoveyClub and test new products and ideas in a warm and thoughtful atmosphere. Check out the Covey B2B services here.
