CoWork Jax announces 2nd Annual Coworking Week

CoWork Jax announces the 2nd Annual Downtown Coworking Week. From March 12 – March 16, the CoWork Jax community has decided to open its doors and invite everyone to enjoy free coworking for the week. The growing CoWork Jax community is eager for others to experience the growing collaborative and innovative atmosphere happening at the space.

CoWork Jax is also a proud member of the Downtown community, and is pleased to be able to offer this event, and to bring people Downtown who might not otherwise think of working there. The first Downtown Coworking Week was held last year, in collaboration with Downtown Vision, Inc., Jacksonville’s Downtown Improvement District, and Downtown Vision is glad to see this becoming an annual event.

In honor of the free week, CoWork Jax will host a number of great events. For a full schedule of events visit the CoWork Jax website at http://coworkjax.com

Monday: Media Day, all day. Local media – bloggers, news media, reporters – are invited to come and work out of the space, meet our members and experience coworking first hand. If you would like to RSVP for the event, or have further questions, send an email to the CoWork community curator, Paige, at Paige@coworkjax.com.
