The Coworking Movement (1/22 in New Haven)


Coworking is a growing movement that is becoming increasingly popular for social enterprises that have outgrown their founders’ living room floors but haven’t scaled to the point of needing (or being able to afford) a stand-alone office and infrastructure.

For some Wesleyan alumni social entrepreneurs, the collaborative energy and pooled resources of coworking spaces are reminiscent of life on campus. Raghu Appasani ’12 and MINDS Foundation are based out of the Next Mile Project in Boston, Jason Rosado ’96 and Givkwik are based out of the Hub in San Fran (which is run by Tim Freundlich ’90), and Jordyn Lexton ’08 and Drive Change are based out of the Center for Social Innovation in New York City – to name just a few.

Our friends at some Connecticut coworking spaces including reSET and The Grove will gather in New Haven for a free event on Wednesday, January 22, at 6 p.m., and they invite members of the Wesleyan community to attend. No need to have a venture of your own; this event is for anyone interested in social entrepreneurship, startup culture, or career development.
