Jelly is a coworking event, where people come together regardless of their area of expertise to co-work for the day. It’s a very relaxed event and we meet once a month normally on a Thursday at diferent venues in the city.
It’s even been described as a popup office!
Where did it start?
Jelly started in NYC in February of 2006 when roommates Amit and Luke realized that they loved working from home, but they missed the creative brainstorming, sharing, and camaraderie of a traditional office.
So they started inviting friends to come 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. Emboldened by their early success, they made it a more regular thing. Jelly was born.
The idea of Jelly Liverpool is to provide chairs and tables, wireless internet and coffee but more importantly interesting people to talk to, collaborate with, and bounce ideas off of.
You bring a laptop (or whatever you need to get your work done) and a friendly disposition.
Who can come to Jelly? Anyone!
We see a lot of developers, and internet types. Some would class themselves as entrepreneurs or freelancers. Others work in an office most of the time, but work at Jelly for fresh ideas and a change of pace. We’d love to encourage a lot more to attend and to spread the word wider in Liverpool to attract more from the creative & digital industry sector, but basically anyone who works remotely or independently is made very welcome No matter what you do or what you create, you’re welcome to come to Jelly and share your talent and learn from others.
