CoActiveIT Grows in Kansas City, Joins bizperc Community
Entrepreneurs are known to make their own schedules. Many may not start the day until 10:00 AM and work from home in their pajamas. But that is not the case for a group known as CoActiveIT.
There was quite a bit of hustle and bustle going on in bizperc last Thursday at 8:00AM. The energy seemed to be coming from the 4th floor meeting room, where CoActiveIT was discussing the busy month ahead.
CoActiveIT is compromised of seasoned consultants covering a broad range of technologies and skill sets. Working together to provide clients with custom software development services in Kansas City, CoActiveIT serves clients of all sizes on a individual consultant or team basis.
"CoActiveIT is unique because it's made of independent consultants and consulting firms-everyone that is a part of it has their own business," says Doug Bliss, founder of the organization. "We all benefit as members because we get to work in a team environment and learn from each other. CoActiveIT helps all of us improve our skills."
Recently, Doug joined the Kansas City coworking community when he became a tenant at bizperc.
"I love this part of town," says Doug of the Crossroads Arts District. "It's central to where everyone is and it allows me to share resources with others."
CoActiveIt is growing significantly. What started as a 12-person consulting organization has developed into a 30-member team with a new marketing hire on the way. This month, CoActiveIT will be setting up its first tradeshow booth in Kansas Cit...and it seems as if they're looking to make quite a splash.
"The camaraderie and formalization of CoActiveIT is great," says Doug. "I have taken a positive experience and turned it into a money-making venture."
And isn't that what entrepreneurship is all about?
