Next Kendal Jelly!!!
Kendal's next Jelly event on Thursday 18th September.....opens at 10.30am until 3pm ....and The Factory, Kendal.......bring you computer, work and coffee cup....and join us.
What is a Jelly Event?
Jelly 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 parking 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.
How did Jelly evolve?
Jelly was established in 2006 when two New York freelancers were talking about a major drawback of working alone; namely the lack of company. They decided to invite a group of freelancers to bring their laptops and work together in their apartment for the day, and called it Jelly as they were eating Jelly beans at the time!
