If you’re in or around the Oklahoma City area doing freelance work, there’s some very good news for you. Derrick Parkhurst along with a few members of the local community are opening OKCCoCo – Oklahoma City Coworking Collaborative. What is Coworking? Coworking is essentially a movement to create a working office environment for freelancers and independent workers that they miss out on working from home. Individuals will be able to rent a desk or private office to work at every month with a bunch or other really cool and smart people instead of working from home or signing a long-term lease for a real office and still being by themselves. If you’re a freelancer or an independent worker that is interested in coworking, you should plan on attending the OPEN HOUSE to view the space on Saturday, January 17th at 2pm. Details and registration are on the OKCCoCo website.
There will be a few additional announcements and activities at the open house, including a speech from Noah Everett, the founder of TwitPic. My own startup InvoiceMore will have a special announcement as well and a bonus for those who sign-up for OKCCoCo with a full or part-time commitment. Come out if you can, and don’t forget to register first! These are exciting times for the Oklahoma technology community!
