Jellies are occasional meetings at which a small group of people come together to collaborate in an informal atmosphere. Unlike coworking spaces, no membership is required, they cost nothing and take place in a variety of locations. They offer the opportunity to exchange ideas, with no commitments or costs. And at the same time, they allow a community to build that can eventually lead to the development of an institution like a coworking space. With these two benefits in mind, Anni Roolf, a communication designer from Wuppertal, has organized the first European Jelly Week. It will take place from January 17 to 23 in many cities across Europe.
The first month in the Hub was quite intense and sometimes chaotic. We switched into multitasking by organising events in order to attract potential members and give idea of where we’re heading to, furnishing the space, making new rules and promoting co-working as much as possible. Partly because of this workload I missed Coworking EU event in Brussels, but hope to catch on with fellow space owners some time in the future.
How was it? Just wanted to let you know what we’ve e so far in terms of attracting new members, having events and promoting ourselves. I’ll write more about members in this post and use others posts later.
