Corey Kohn


Corey helps design businesses that are the building blocks of a saner, healthier and more compassionate world. She co-founded and continues to lead Dojo4 as place that reinvents assumptions about how business should be done and by advocating for a more enlightened, human way of building various kinds of capital through writing, speaking, and creative projects. She is also the co-creator of Antidote to Tech, a resource for technologists committed to thriving natural environments and genuine human connection. Being an incorrigible connector, dedicated lover of fun, and relentlessly practical idealist has been integral to doing her best work in tech and elsewhere.

Some more or less known tidbits about Corey:

  • She was raised in a Buddhist family and got her middle name, Nigu, from Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
  • Shes studied biology and math at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, medical anthropology at McGill and communications at Concordia, both in Montreal.
  • Shes a widely published photographer.
  • During her first career in documentary film, she worked mostly on social justice oriented films, and even on a few Oscar nominated productions.
  • She helps run a Buddhist military childrens camp every summer, and leads a wilderness rites of passage for 16 year-olds.

All of Coreys work is made possible through the good company of her exceptionally patient husband, Michael, and fearless, funny daughters, Florence and Phoebe.
