betaspring (1.15) Head down to Betaspring (a mentorship-driven startup accelerator program for technology and design entrepreneurs) on Chestnut Street for an unusual design event.

Join the Founders League on January 15 to kick off our new series of Co-Working “Jellies.” Our first Jelly is for designers (of all stripes) and will be hosted by Hannah Chung and Nicole Mercer. This gathering is appropriate for experienced and new designers alike. If you like to make things, make things beautiful, or more elegant to use then this is the meetup for you!

What is a Jelly?

A “Jelly” is a casual working event. The hosts provide seating, wireless internet, and interesting people to talk to, collaborate with, and bounce ideas off of. Participants bring a laptop (or whatever you need to get your work done) and a disposition to meet new people. The work time will be followed by an optional “peer critique” session where the group can have an open discussion about individual projects/issues.

Betaspring was almost empty on Saturday when I stopped in. The space looks just as it should, complete with hammocks and a ping-pong table. Thank you Satish (picture after the jump) for explaining things to me. His startup project is TouchVu which converts your business Facebook page into a multi-screen website, with free hosting. Why didn’t I think of that?

Free, 3pm to 6pm, Tuesday, January 15, Design Jam with Hannah and Nicole, Betaspring, 95 Chestnut Street
