If you have been thinking about trying coworking, there is no better time to give it a whirl than this Friday 18 July 2014 at the regular Melbourne Jelly Meetup which once again is being held at Electron Workshop.
The Jelly ‘movement’ began in February 2006 in New York City. Since then, the movement has grown and there are over 100 cities around the world that are involved.
‘Jelly is open to anyone and it’s free!’
I’ve been to a few Jelly Meetups so far. A couple last year were held at the then new ‘Collins Collective‘ coworking space, centrally located at the top end of Collins Street, Melbourne (Suite 6, Level 6 Collins Street). The others were at Electron Workshop in North Melbourne, an established and innovative coworking space run by Nick Jaffe and Martin Gleeson, which is where the event is being held this Friday.

I must say I met some really interesting nice people and learned a few things too.
Electron Workshop is a quiet coworking space that attracts numerous independents as well as people working in the digital media industry. It’s friendly, convenient, near great cafes, Victoria Market, not very far from public transport and has a nice relaxed vibe. Oh yes, I mustn’t forget to mention the cappuccino machine and ping pong table. They even have an in-house theatre.

The Jelly option is a great opportunity to trial coworking. Some people come to just get out of their office, especially home office and to have a change of pace or scene for the day or a few hours. Others jump at the chance to get fresh ideas by way of chatting to fellow ‘jelliers’.
Whatever suits you, it’s a pretty casual affair.
Jelly is open to anyone and it’s free!
