On the first Wednesday night of every month, freelancers get together to learn new skills, trade tips, and share ideas for their businesses.

We call it Spark.

So far, Spark takes place in 18 cities across the United States. Each event is completely member-led, meaning the conversation is for freelancers, by freelancers, and all about freelancing.

Presently, we're accepting applications for new Spark leaders and co-leaders! Think you've got what it takes?


As a Spark leader, you’ll join an exclusive community of freelancer-leaders from across the United States. These amazing folks are web developers, investigative journalists, social media consultants, artists, brand strategists, and more.

Spark leaders....

  • Facilitate monthly Spark workshops
  • Spread the word about Spark within their local communities
  • Partner with local co-working spaces to host Spark events

Apply to co-lead Spark in your city!

Join in to empower local freelancers to build thriving businesses, cultivate trusted communities of like-minded entrepreneurs, and makes freelancing better for all!
