The Skillery is a Nashville coworking space with resources and programming for freelancers, entrepreneurs, small teams and independent professionals, all aimed at making work meaningful, satisfying and unabashedly fun.


99U Local: Nashville

Nashville coworking space The Skillery joined 27 other organizations around the world for 99U Local, a week of inspirational events on the topic of making ideas happen. 

99U Local: Nashville

The Skillery has been chosen as a host for 99U Local, a series of worldwide events based on the making-ideas-happen focus of New York's 99U conference. This September, we'll be joining 27 other organizations around the world for a week of events geared toward taking inspiration out of our heads and into the world. 

What is it?

This is not a conference. It's a casual, intimate gathering based on 99U's ethos of putting ideas into action. The event will consist of three curated talks that embody that ethos and share road-tested insights, followed by a casual networking and drinks session. 

When is it?

99U Local: Nashville will be held at The Skillery on Thursday, September 17, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. 


99U Local: Nashville is free and open to the public, and space is extremely limited. Registration is required.
