Earlier this month, the World Economic Forum published a groundbreaking piece that touched on CoLiving for the first time. In this article, it explains how the widespread affordable housing challenges that plague millions of urban residents can be alleviated through this new movement. It’s exciting enough that the WE Forum is finally talking about CoLiving as a major viable solution, and even more exciting that they’re recognizing the role of tech in making this all possible. This Arcadis article specifically mentions Kndrd as a leader in expanding CoLiving for a broader market to make this housing option more accessible and automated. We’re so incredibly grateful to have been noted as a positive force of change in this market. Here's our response.
What is Kndrd Building? One of the biggest problems plaguing modern society is real estate and social challenges. People are signing away their paychecks on rent and feeling increasingly isolated. Kndrd’s goal is to solve these problems through the CoLiving movement by making it easier to book and manage these spaces so that everyone can catch on. Kndrd is not just a CoLiving Management Software. While that’s one part of what we do, it doesn’t even come close to what we’re achieving and building as a whole.
You’ve probably heard about the rapid rise of CoLiving and how it’s taking the urban world by storm. While it may follow a specific model in your mind, CoLiving is the furthest thing from one-size-fits all. The formats and types of CoLiving options are just as diverse as the global cities it occupies. We’re about to give you a rundown of ALL the different forms of CoLiving, from the most private of personal units to an ultra-sharing pod.
Now, it’s possible for people to head out to work without even leaving their building. And we aren’t talking about working from home. That’s right, the latest peek into the future of living & work is giving a whole new meaning to the concept of time-saving efficiency.
Kndrd decided to be part of the solution and forged onward with leading the charge to create public data informing people about this rising industry. After endless research, discussions, and data drawing, we’re finally ready to share it. Here are just a few of the excerpts and highlights from our massive report.
