What is it?
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 similar individuals.
Jelly started in New York City in February of 2006 when two freelancers Amit Gupta and Luke Crawford started inviting friends to work from their home one day a week. They soon found that working in close proximity to new and interesting people every couple weeks resulted in new ideas and interesting conversations.
Why do that?
Homeworkers, artists, freelancers, generally miss out on creative brainstorming, sharing, and camaraderie of a traditional office. (but not the office politics).
With Jelly you can meet up with like-minded people, have a change of scene, remain productive, exchange ideas, give help and advice, and maybe come up with new ideas or projects to collaborate on.
Jelly now takes place in over a hundred cities around the world and has become a global phenomenon. Jelly09 is the local Jelly for the Ariège region of SouthWest France.
