============================ Thanks to our Venue Sponsor: CoWorking Fullerton
Coworking Fullerton is the ideal office for all people who have a business or work on a business but do not (always) have a regular office to go to. We try to be that home. Where you can walk in, feel at home, drink some coffee, bring your lunch and get work done! Its a productive environment for people that need to be productive now and then, but sometimes miss the watercooler to bump into some cool coworkers you can talk to and help each other out. Coworking Fullerton is a place where any (home based) business owner, or professional can feel at home. We organize workshops and fun events to learn, network and build relationships. One of our main events is the Jelly, which is a free casual coworking get-together every 2nd Wednesday of the month. If you get bored of talking to your cat, or still feel lonely at an executive suite where your working all on your own all day. Come check out Coworking Fullerton. Our workshops and events are a great way to get to know people who work here. http://www.coworkingf... Venue Notes:
Suite is on Harbor and Amerige (storefront is actually on Amerige). If going north from 91, go up Harbor and turn right on Amerige. Parking spaces and Parking structure is across from suite.
