Jelissa, Nuria & Megan met in December 2016 after finding out through the web that they had similar ideas to start a baby friendly coworking space in Lausanne. They hit it off instantly and decided to combine forces to make their concept a reality!

Aspiring to have a better balance between family life and work, they were convinced that a supportive community was the way to make The Village a success- After all, it takes a village to raise a child!


Jelissa is a scientist and true to her career stereotype, has lots of projects in her head! Together with her 1 year old and 4 year old, she runs The Village and you'll probably meet her during a visit onsite.

Nuria is the IT-go-to of the team and she works alongside her 1 year old boy. A real life model of flexibility and remote working, she's a self confessed digital nomad!

Megan juggles between her career and her two small boys. At The Village, she takes care of communications and The Village social.
