We are an interdisciplinary initiative within the ongoing Future of Work development. Our core theme is the unlimited world of community building. Our method is unrestricted drift through all zones of the knowledge exchange landscape.

We are DNA. Based in Zurich.

The DNA journey to Community Building

Purpose, Persona, Place, Program and People. DNA enables the collaborative knowledge gain for individuals and teams being passionate about building and growing communities.

We strive to add value to organizations through alignment with ROC (Return on Community).

On site and digital.


DNA is all about communities. As digital nomads we moved through cities and countries, working in coworking spaces and airports, restaurants, outdoors, in schools. Almost everywhere actually. And one of us also studied abroad.

Our research revealed a growing demand from nomads for communities that started in the coworking spaces. The next step was to explore the yet unknown profession of the Community Builder, who creates and ignites a community.

DNA offers courses and individual advisory focusing the purpose of a community. For nomads, people from business, industry, non-professional organizations, authorities, associations, private individuals.

We are DNA. Get on Board.

Follow us on social media. For instance our crispy Instagram Live sessions, or join our additional Community Builders Talks-Club in Linkedin.
