We are a hyperlocal New York City group that meets to improve freelance business skills, share stories, solve problems and enable targeted learning through small-group conversations, informal talks, and mutual micro-mentoring. We form a community in which we can use our collective resources and experience to support one another.

This group is open to all independent workers living or working in the NYC area. We originated from the Freelancers Union Monthly Member Meetings.
