About the Event


Join us for our first event in our Future of Work series at Free Space!

Are you curious about becoming a freelancer but don’t really know where to start? We will have two talks this evening focused on the basics, including information on accounting and the legal aspects of being a (remote) freelancer.

There will be free food and drinks and plenty of time to mingle throughout the evening. In addition, we will have a photographer on-site to provide free headshots for those in attendance who want one.

Please RSVP through Meetup.com by clicking the green RSVP button on this page so we can provide an accurate list of names of all attendees to the venue. Keep in mind that guests need to RSVP separately, and please be sure to bring a photo ID on the day of the event as well.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Wayne directly.

We’re excited for you to join us!

Organized in partnership with Toptal.
