We’re thrilled to be partnering with Kiln for our newest Hub in Boulder. Nina Khosravi, Community Director for Kiln, wrote in to Dynamo’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Claudia Prandoni, to tell us more about Kiln and what Dynamo’s partnership means to them.
Claudia: Tell us a little bit about Kiln and its Boulder location.
Nina: From the beginning, Kiln Boulder was designed as an eco-friendly hub for the coworking community in Boulder, Colorado. Our architects and designers took seven separate buildings and repurposed them into a contemporary flexible open office space solution. In addition to the adaptive reuse of existing retail space, Kiln is focused on reducing our carbon footprint with solar panels and other environmentally friendly measures. Our unparalleled location right on Pearl Street provides free first-come, first-serve parking in the heart of Boulder, Colorado where spaces are at premium. Kiln Boulder attracts a vibrant, hip community of individuals seeking networking and relationship building opportunities to grow their businesses while still enjoying the nearby outdoor attractions. From single entrepreneurs to larger companies catering to a better work/life balance for their employees, Kiln provides coworking office solutions with plenty of amenities and perks to ease your daily routine.
Claudia: How does Kiln differ from other coworking spaces, hotels, and members clubs?
Nina: Kiln has many unique and special features, but the two most important are its design and the tight knit feel of our community. Our cofounder is a designer and there was thought put into every nook and cranny of Kiln. We have ample amounts of space to take private calls, or just to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee, natural light throughout the building and plants galore. It’s very common to hear gasps, oos and ahs from people on a tour because the space is so beautiful! Nothing compares to our community! We are a family and you can feel it when you walk in. We provide tons of opportunities for members to connect in and outside of Kiln and everyone is there to support one another. Kiln has a holistic approach, as do our members. We care about each person’s work and personal life and believe there should be a healthy balance!
Claudia: What are the main benefits Kiln offers that you’d like the Dynamo community to know about?
Nina: Kiln coworking spaces are famous for the huge variety of amenities that facilitate better performance and a work-life balance. Our Boulder location offers a podcast studio and outdoor patio space in addition to various wellness amenities such as yoga and a relaxation room. Our studio offices provide sound-proofed private meeting spaces, with a unique contemporary decor that preserves the original building’s texture and history. With sit-to-stand desks, soft seating, and ergonomic options, Kiln offers you a comprehensive suite of an office setup with copiers, printers, WiFi, and other components already in place so you can hit the ground running.
Claudia: What are you most excited about Kiln’s partnership with Dynamo?
Nina: We are so excited to partner with Dynamo and hope to be the community gathering place for all things clean energy related in Boulder. We are committed to helping those in this space because we believe that clean energy companies are working towards solving some of the most important and pressing issues we face as a society.
