Currently, there are almost 2 million freelancers in the Netherlands. This number is only rising and we understand why. Freelance means; having the freedom to do what you want to do, job wise. But it’s not always easy. Networking is key to finding new assignments and you have no colleagues. Which also means that you have to miss out on those fun after work drinks. Next month there is a network event for freelancers that we want you to hear about.
As a freelancer you often miss out on the fun office drinks
What is Qommunity?
Founded by friends and business partners Kiki Calis and Kim Trotz, Qommunity is for freelancers by freelancers. Kiki and Kim saw more and more freelancers having the need for contact with colleagues. As a freelancer you often miss out on the fun office drinks. That’s why they hosted their first gave a New Year’s reception in Q1. In Q4 of 2018, the Q team was strengthened and is busy setting up a platform together with the events where freelancers can really become Qollegas.
Around one in five people will work on a freelance or project basis in 2020
Each new quarter, they host a new Qommunity event with a different theme. The next event is focussing on our favourite subject: Travel! So what to expect?
