What is Jelly?
Jelly is a casual monthly co-working event, where homeworkers, freelancers, small business owners and office based people, who want a change of environment once in a while can get together with their laptops once a month to have a change from their usual working environment. Jelly is a mixture of work, chat, sharing ideas, helping others with business issues, passing on tips and even collaborating on the birth of a new project.
Jelly is NOT networking.
The aim is not to meet clients, pitch your business or try to sell - anyone blatantly doing this will NOT be popular - there are plenty of excellent Shropshire networking groups where you can do this. Jelly was started in the USA and is now increasingly popular in the UK with over 20 active groups already operating.
IT'S GREAT TO THINK THAT OSWESTRY IS ONE OF SEVERAL SHROPSHIRE TOWNS LEADING THE WAY IN THIS INNOVATIVE IDEA.
So if you ever feel isolated in your home office/work office and want to meet some other like-minded people in a different work environment, then JELLY is for you. It's free so jump on in and give it a try!
What is the cost to attend?
Whilst It is FREE to attend, there is a £10 working lunch available which we encourage all attendees to purchase to show our appreciation for the free venue space and wifi. Apart from this all you need do is bring money for tea and coffee. Do I have to stay all day? No, we don't barricade doors. It's up to you when you come and when you leave - obviously the more that stay for the duration, the more vibrant and interactive it will be.
Do I qualify to attend?
As long as you have a laptop or craft to keep you busy and you're a business person, consider yourself eligible. The more variety of people we have attending, the better! Even if you're still researching your business you are more than welcome to come along and get some inspiration.
