When & Where
No one masters self employment without help from others. As more and more people pursue independent careers, the need for structure, education, and shared accountability grows accordingly. Just as industries have risen to accommodate the needs of a white collar employed workforce, so too will new services be built for the new independent workforce.
To this end, we provide a platform that allows participants to to create programs that are geared toward this goal. These efforts take the forms of classes, workshops, coworking sessions, mentorships, speaker series, and more. The program is driven by a core belief that each participant has something to teach and something to learn from everyone else.
