Café des Voisins (Coffee place of the Neighbors) is a new co-working area and Coffee place in the neighborhood of PlainPalais. Discovered this thanks to a friend that works close to it and was curious to discover what was all about.
The concept is great, they have a co-working area next to the Café for people that work from home or are independent (ejem… bloggers) and still need to have a place to-go-to from time to time. I totally understand the need to go-to-work when you are independent and work from home. In the last few years I have not been very stable on working hours, I was looking for a job, I worked a lot in the blog, I was also full time blogger for a whole month (jijij). So even if I have a super cute desk at home it is nice to get outside and see some people and work next to them.
This is a new concept that is expanding in Europe since there is more and more people that are entrepreneurs and self-employed. This has proven to increase working efficiency motivation and networking. It is also known for cost reduction.
They have 2 co-working areas in Geneva now, one in Rue Des Voisins and another one close to the train station (haven’t been). So, if you are looking for a place to work outside your house, meet some other interesting entrepreneurs and be more efficient this is the path to take :).
I would even recommend this por people looking for a job, since it keeps you in the working environment and you can even get some tips on the job searching 😉
