Event description


Welcome to Freelancers Union SPARK!

We host meetups for freelancers by freelancers: we invite you to bring your expertise, questions, and elevator pitches to the table to workshop and discuss.

Join us on the first Wednesday of every month (and our Facebook group for the in-between time!) to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, get inspired, and talk about stuff like...

FREE CO-WORKING DAY - 100state has generously offered to let all our Spark attendees use the space for free on the day of our event...come hang out and work with other fun freelancers!


It's impossible to do everything by yourself, especially when you’re a freelancer and trying to grow your own business. That's why your network is absolutely essential to your success. This month's Spark will cover strategies for building your network - your most valuable asset. Discussion will include:

  • The four types of people you need in your network

  • Why you must give in order to receive

  • Strategies for building connections

There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before.

Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure Everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive.

SPARK is built on the premise that we’re stronger together than we are on our own.

Check out our Madison Facebook group to swap jobs, resources, and meet other people who love their "boss!"

The national conversation is live at #FreelanceSPARK. Join us in a whole bunch of cities cities across the country!
