A collaborative space for contributors to the digital economy
La Cantine is the first coworking space in the Paris / Ile de France area. It is affiliated with other similar structures in the region, in France and even abroad (San Francisco, Barcelona, São Paulo, etc…).
This space was specifically designed for collaborative work and facilitating cooperation. Furthermore, La Cantine is open to working with French and international networks, whether they are coworking spaces, art-oriented platforms, alternative venues, competitive clusters, specialized research labs, colleges or universities.
The aim of La Cantine is to connect those who work in diverse locations, in order to pool resources and skills among developers, entrepreneurs, users, artists, researchers and students. It is thus a place for meeting, information, exchange and synergy between dispersed individuals, built around harnessing the collective intelligence.
La Cantine is becoming a centre of reference and resources for multiple collaborative initiatives in the world, as well as new technologies. La Cantine promotes networked collaborative work through exchanges using innovative and technological platforms in France and abroad.
A coworking space
After Brad Neuberg saw that certain employees preferred to work in a café rather than in an office because it was more pleasant and there was more space, La Cantine decided to encourage this work model that encourages exchanges and creativity, by thinking of the space as a third place somewhere between office and home.
We have three types of space available:
- An area which provides 21 individual workstations with an ADSL connection
- A space which can accommodate up to 12 people for meetings and up to 20 for presentations
- A coffee which can accommodate up to 30 people for presentation
Produce, test and circulate Innovative Projects
A multipurpose space for creation, experimentation and innovation, La Cantine aims to create an environment conducive to the diffusion of ideas in an atmosphere of freedom and creativity, as well as to encourage not only the development of projects, software and IT applications, but also educational material, blogs, videos, photos, audio and any online digital creation.
Encompassing the ecosystem of digital technologies, La Cantine organizes themed evenings around communities of practice, nights dedicated to producing and testing various projects, as well as open weekends for events focused on reflection, which encourage exchange and cross-pollination of ideas among coders, developers, technophiles, innovators, entrepreneurs, users, etc., in the interest of facilitating innovation, design and the emergence of new products and services.
Thanks to its international network, its role as a digital showcase, its relationship with competitive clusters and its support of innovation, La Cantine contributes to the dissemination of new concepts, products and services.
