What is a Jelly?
Jelly (http://www.uk-jelly.org.uk/) is an informal co-working event where freelancers, home workers and small/micro business owners bring their laptop or other work and work, chat and collaborate with other small business owners. The ethos of Jelly is to be accessible to all so the venue, wifi and power are provided FREE of charge, with small charges made for food and drink. Co-working means meeting up with like-minded people to work together in a different environment, to exchange help and advice, and maybe come up with a new idea to collaborate on. Jelly differs from networking in that the aim is not to find new clients or to sell yourself or your business.
What should I bring?
Yourself and your laptop. That’s it! But if you’re feeling especially nice you may also want to bring along something to share with the group. Oh, and if you have a free-agent friend, bring them along too.
Is there a Twitter hashtag?
Yes there is! It’s #kindredJelly
About Centre for Creative Collaboration (C4CC)
We love the creative vibe of C4CC. The building, near Kings Cross, was designed as a neutral place where people from many different backgrounds – universities, large corporates, SMEs, freelancers – can work together on new things in the belief that real innovation happens at the edge and in the gaps between disciplines. It’s the antithesis of a traditional office, has a unique buzz about it and is place where ideas tend to cross pollination freely across disciplines.
