The City of Frederick’s Department of Economic Development is committed to making Frederick the best place to do business. From start-up to international expansion, the department is there to find answers, make connections, and create solutions.

Brain Boost is a monthly brown bag event designed to build expertise, catapult the success of small businesses, and ensure equitable access to a wealth of knowledge. People from a variety of professions and walks of life share their experience and expertise in an educational talk. Then, with the help of a facilitator, participants engage in active conversation. The event aims to spark inclusive conversation and circulate the abundant knowledge of Frederick’s small biz community. Participants bring their own lunch (optionally). Drinks and light snacks are provided. The Cowork Frederick Foundation (a 501(c)(3) non-profit) covers the cost of running the program and the meeting space, with the help of sponsors. Speakers volunteer their time.

Founded in 2019, the Cowork Frederick Foundation is the community-supported, non-profit arm of Cowork Frederick. We help Frederick County freelancers and entrepreneurs be more successful by creating ways for them to connect, learn, and build better businesses – and lives – together.
