Coming Up: Jelly Week (January 14-18)
What is Jelly Week?
Jelly Week is part of Global Jelly Week, which is being held at 150 different locations in 33 countries across the world. The idea is to educate the general public about the term “Jelly” and how it relates to coworking.
What is Jelly?
Jelly is a casual event where people within a community come together to exchange ideas. Most Jelly events happen within coworking spaces but they can also happen through networking events or online communities. The idea is to get people together and bounce around ideas—to work on new business ideas, demonstrate products and pitch possible business partnerships.
What is coworking?
Coworking is a style of work environment that promotes open, shared workspaces. The isolation that comes from working in cubicles inhibits community-building and works against the Jelly philosophy. The ideas behind Jelly are why most coworking spaces are built on the foundation of openness and a strong community.
What is BoxJelly?
The BoxJelly is Hawaii’s first and largest coworking space.
