Jelly is an informal co-working event where freelancers, home workers and small/micro business owners bring their laptop and work, chat and collaborate with other small business owners.
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 new ideas to collaborate on. Jelly differs from networking in that the aim is not to find new clients or to sell yourself or your business.
The ethos of Jelly is to be accessible to all so the venue, WiFi and desks are provided FREE of charge.Tea and coffee will be available at cost or feel free to bring along your own food/drinks from one of the many local cafes in Woking town centre.
Places are limited and bookings are essential. It is not possible to just show up on the day, only those who have pre-booked their attendance will be admitted. All attendess will be required to sign in at the reception desk in the lobby before proceeding to the incubation centre.
We look forward to working with you!

What kind of work is suitable to do at a Jelly co-working environment?
That’s up to you but most Jellyers find it’s a good opportunity to work on emails, social media, reports, quotes, marketing documents, business plans – whatever you would normally do behind your computer when you’re working.
