Meet Ups, Co-working and what's a jelly?

The concept of a Jelly started in New York in February 2006 when a group of friends realised they loved working from home, but missed the creative brainstorming, sharing and camaraderie of being in a traditional office.

So, one day a week they started inviting friends round to work from their home – which gave them the best of both worlds.

They got the quietness that comes with working on your own, mixed with one day a week working alongside new and interesting people – with their new and interesting ideas and conversations. They made it a regular thing… and the Jelly was born.

Apparently it was called “Jelly” as there were Jelly Beans at the first New York gathering.


Everyone is welcome at a Jelly.  It’s FREE to attend for TBC (The Businesses Community) members, and just £5 to non members.

We are always amazed at what goes on in terms of business collaborations at the Jellies – and the generosity of those people there who are happy to share their skills and expertise with whoever is attending.   There is absolutely no commitment involved in attending – just come and say hello.  Stay for a bit, or stay for the whole session.
