About the Venue

We are a community of creators, innovators, and food truck enthusiasts in East Austin, TX. We created solo and social places within our coworking space to create, collaborate, and meditate. We are Journey Coworking. Home to your best life’s work. We are for the hustlers that prefer to pause and be present from time to time versus the 24/hour hustle & bustle. Enter the entrepreneurs, free agents, agencies, and virtual workers, the satellite teams and those of the startup mentality: we are building a new kind of shared workplace – a coworking space to be solo and social; to make, to break bread, and to clear and rest your head. A place to wash away the day and begin the next anew. Whether you’re dedicated to your desk or working for a company from afar at our custom-built bar, we have just the coworking space for those that desire a better way to work, live, and play- we’ve coined it coexisting.

This event is free to attend. Join us for a fun evening! For more free startup events, visit https://FI.co/events.
