BCF Pop-Up Co-Working at Broad St Cafe

Join Bull City Forward in our inaugural Pop-Up Co-Working, an event ideated by one of our own entrepreneurs, Carlo Diy of HaitiHub.

Bring your laptop and plop down next to other entrepreneurs getting things done. When you enter, take a second to look at the white board at the front and, if you feel inclined, jot down the following for the group to see:

1. Work goals for the next couple hours (i.e. I want to finish my pitch deck)

2. Things you’d like support / fresh eyes on (i.e. I’d like someone to give the slides in my pitch deck a quick 5 min review)

If you don’t want to participate in the accountability white-board, no worries! Just come and join us in our first co-working flash mob and enjoy meeting some new faces.

John and the Broad St Cafe team are offering the following specials for Co-Workers:

1/2 Price apps until 5pm
$4 NC Draft beers and $4 Well Drinks all day
