In 2011, when the whole adventure began, there were only two of us. And now we are 17 ! We hone our skills on a daily basis : community building, project owners guidance and personal & professional support.
We believe and abide by the principles of self-management and horizontal organisation. They inspire our multi-talented team to build a company at the service of a more fair and caring society.
We love to talk about our vision : during events, on social media and on our blog. If you have any questions, just ask !
Our community prides itself on its diversity. Members are either entrepreneurs, freelancers, employees, job seekers, students … they are men and women, young and old, and work in all kinds of business sectors.
They come to la Cordée to talk about their projects and brainstorm new ideas, to work, learn, find customers and business partners, or even simply to have a great time with friends over lunch.
They like to mix it up and check out many of our different co-working spaces : in Lyon, Paris, Annecy, Rennes and Nantes. You are likely to run into them at the train station !
We partner up with many different kinds of players : local communties, associations and businesses, freelance collectives, entrepreneurs’ networks, government agencies, academics, …
A big thanks to all of them !
La Cordée was founded in 2011 by Julie & Michael with the support of a small group of local entrepreneurs — later joined by the Caisse des dépôts et consignations in 2015.
