Launched in February 2011, the North Side Freelance Network is a collaborative resource and community-building tool for current and fledgling freelancers and solopreneurs.
NSFN aims to create a community on the far northeast side of Chicago and the near North suburbs that will:
Create both online and in-person spaces for people to meet
Help freelancers sustain or grow their businesses
Be a resource for those who are contemplating the leap to self-employment
Offer mutual support as well as opportunities for sharing ideas, collaborative projects, and referrals
The aim of this group is first and foremost to foster community and person-to-person relationships. In order to accomplish this, most of our events will be on the north side of Chicago, including the neighborhoods of Uptown, Ravenswood, Edgewater, Andersonville, and Rogers Park.
