Event Details

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 on Facebook in between!) to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, get inspired, and talk about stuff like...


We’ll kick off 2018 with a community conversation as we build an action plan:

  • What are the issues that matter most for independent workers?
    • protection from non-payment, health insurance, work/life balance, professional development, tax & legal issues, networking and growing our business?
  • How can we create a more positive community for freelancers this year?
  • How can our local SPARK meetup and Freelancers Union support these efforts?

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 DC 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!
