HI

Britney T-MBoxJelly intern Britney here. Welcome to the first post of TRIPPIN’ – a summer series for the BoxJelly blog, featuring different coworking spaces I come across during my travels for George Mason University’s Social Innovation Program.

It’s amazing how time flies. In January, I thought, “Wow, I’m going all the way to Virginia to study social innovation!” In February, I wondered, “Wow, I can visit so many friends along the way!” Then in April, I said, “Wow, I should visit all these coworking spaces too!” So now I am.

These other spaces, what would they be like? How did they start up? Do they have free coffee and/or beer too?  The who/what/where/when/why’s may be different, but all of us are taking off on the same coworking wave. Tomorrow I’ll be paddling out and seeing how others have navigated the industry swells.

During June and July, join me for my off-island jelly journey, TRIPPIN’ around the mainland!
