Local Business Spotlight: KDragonfly, An Agile Talent Network
Coworking is about people. Yes, it’s also about productivity, and community and collaboration. But without people, it’s just a space with desks and wifi. When you add people, connections become possible. And it’s these connections that make independent professionals so powerful and successful.
We do a pretty good job of forging our own connections at Cohere, but if there’s one thing I swear by, it’s using an expert whenever there’s one available. I recently had the pleasure of stumbling upon a local, woman-owned company in our area that specializes in putting people and projects together. Called KDragonfly, this people-centered effort believes strongly that the way we work is changing, and they want to help Northern Colorado professionals lead the charge.
If you’re looking to land more gigs, or collaborate with local independent professionals outside the Cohere family, this could be the resource you’ve been waiting for!
