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!

After a year in their first venue, Jelissa took over and runs The Village Coworking in St Sulpice, in collaboration with a private childcare and school program l'écoline.
