New collaborative platform set to launch in Dundee

A new networking and collaboration platform set to launch in Dundee to bring people together from different sectors and backgrounds in and around Dundee and Tayside.

The platform aims to help individuals and businesses creatively engage with one another to drive the Dundee business community forward and foster positive social change.

Societay has been set up by Chris Gardiner, Andy McGill and Daniel Rosie with the aim of creating informal meet-ups in Dundee with drinks or a bite to eat where people can network in a relaxed setting.

Over the next 12 months, the trio aim to host a number of monthly events across the city, ranging from creative cafés, workshops, dinners and talks.

Their launch night is at The White Goose on Thursday 1st of March from 6pm onwards. There will be a free drink for the first 50 guests and canapés throughout the night courtesy of The White Goose. The event is inclusive and open to all who are interested in socialising and meeting others in the Dundee area.

Chris, Andy and Daniel, founders of Societay said: “We are passionate about bringing people in Tayside together, from creatives to councillors, students to social workers, designers to doctors and those from different sectors in Tayside. It’s an easy and relaxed way to socialise in the evenings once a month; no structure, no pressure, no agenda. Our events are inclusive and open to everyone, so if you’re someone who’s interested in meeting like-minded individuals who want to move the city forward together, then we’ll see you there.”

“2018 is going to be one of the most significant years in Dundee’s history, not least because of the V&A and the new waterfront being unveiled to the world.”

“We think the more people who start recognising Dundee as the exciting place that it is, the more people will visit. We identified a real need for a relaxed, collaborative platform within the city and that’s how Societay was born. We hope to bring the city together through connecting people and places in Dundee and outwards across Tayside.

“Ultimately, we hope that we have created an inspiring platform that Dundee as a city can be proud of and we hope to provide real motivation for the people of Dundee and Tayside to support the positive social changes happening within the city.”
