Newsletter: 034 | Fandom
The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off this week in Russia. The fandom that surrounds a sport like soccer, especially during events like the World Cup, in many ways transcends the sport itself. Communities of diverse people rally together around a common bond, creating a culture of camaraderie. These characteristics make for an interesting model when thinking about how to build out a company workforce and culture.

Where We'll Be This Week
Open Office Hours
Friday, June 22, 2018
@ HUB seventeen
114 5th Avenue
(underground lululemon's Flatiron store)
We're taking our laptops to lululemon's community space to work for a few hours and offer a chance to connect in an informal work setting. Think of it as open office hours for you to come by and chat about law, startups, crypto, wellness, etc. It'll also give you an excuse to buy some great workout gear.
You'll need to sign up online at the links provided for ticketed events. Attendance is at your own cost and subject to limited availability. No need to RSVP to us for any of these events, but let us know if you'd like to be kept in the loop on any last-minute scheduling changes. Also, keep in mind that these events are not firm-hosted or sponsored events, so we have no control over availability, pricing or any other matters associated with these events. This is just our attempt at cultivating community by giving us all a chance to connect outside of the office.
