Once you've nailed down your line of work, most likely you may of thought, "I want to target everyone because all the fans, for all the sales."

what is track?

TRACK IS WHERE BUSINESS + CREATIVITY COLLIDE.

JIG+SAW's Track Series facilities weekly courses set up for you to grow in your business and start making moves, getting more sh*t done. Less "I'll get to that" and more "Checked off, what's next?".

Since launching our physical space in February, we noticed coworking as it stands today doesn't fit the mold of the modern female founder. Space just isn't enough. Imagine getting together with your favorite entrepreneurial female power circle every week to talk about your venture progress, the delays you're experiencing, the dead ends you've come across and the support + accountability you've been searching for. Every week that takes place at JIG+SAW.

 

how does track work?

TRACK IS A MONTHLY WORKSHOP, FOCUSING ON BEING A CREATIVE, BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR AND BEING A WOMAN.

Track includes lunch, coffee + snacks to ensure we keep you fed and focused. 

Each track focuses on a core, intimate group of women. This allows us to engage and commit to one another over the course of one month. Each day in your track will allow for us to speak with you 1-on-1 and as a group. We are women, we give a sh*t about one another's success. Show up + hustle + let's make magic happen.

 

Got Q's? We've got A's.

 

q: what is Track?

a: Great question. Track is something super near and dear to us because it's how we started from day one. We built a day of connecting with women almost a year ago, that we knew worked best. It's called Track because, simply, that's our goal - keep you on track, keep you focused, we got you. Track caters to different elements of creating a business; whether you're on Day One or Year Five. We focus on being a creative, being an entrepreneur and being a woman. The idea is that for four weeks, we can create momentum for your growth, for that confirmation you're on the right Track and the opportunity to grow, focus-group and test your products/services/experiences. We hope you join us.

q: when do Tracks close? Waiting for my paycheck!

a: Tracks close on June 5th, 2017 at 10am PST. Once Track closes, we do not sell one-off entry on any of the Track speaker events. This is to protect the bond being built since Day One. 


q: I may not be able to make all the Track days. Will i be able to get a rundown of what I missed?

a: We encourage you to be fully present for Track, to ensure you don't miss a beat with your community and fellow Track members. We understand needing to take a meeting or a call but try your best to protect your schedule so Tuesdays are free for you, 100%.


q: does the package include the nighttime events too?

a: Yes! The best part about Track is you get to join whatever event is happening on the day of your Track. We want you to be able to join other communities participating in our events and this is the best way to get to know the extension of the JIG+SAW family.
