Upcoming Jelly: 14th October 2011 (Friday)

Jelly Chennai

What is Jelly?

Jelly is a casual working event. It's taken place in over a hundred cities where people have come together (in a person's home, a coffee shop, or an office) to work for the day. We provide chairs and sofas, wireless internet, and 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.

  Love it? Share It.

But. Where did it Start?

The Story goes something like this:

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. (Office politics, not so much.)

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

What do we do at Jelly Chennai?

Co-working is Super fun. If you have never coded, or worked in a bunch, its probably the most exhilarating thing - apart from building your own startup ofcourse. The energy level of the group tends to keep you going, as you work through some of those backlogs that you've been holding off for - be it a feature release, a bug that seems to be peskier than Godzilla or even working on that prototype.

We have this awesome space in Chennai, at The Startup Centre. So once in two weeks, we throw open the doors for folks to come in, and work out of here, as part of the Jelly.

Who can come to Jelly?

Really, Anyone!

We see a lot of designers, developers, and internet types, but we've also had musicians, sound designers, tea sommeliers, product designers, photographers, writers, and more.

Some of us are entrepreneurs or freelancers. Others work in an office most of the time, but work at Jelly for fresh ideas and a change of pace.

No matter what you do or what you create, you're welcome to come to Jelly and share your talent and learn from others.

When and where do I sign up?
