Profile

Creative melting of the cultures

Marseille, the port city in southern France, has a bad reputation: the capital of Provence is considered dingy, criminal and dangerous. And in fact, you are looking for magnificent buildings and fashionable life in vain.

But Marseille is a melting pot of cultures, to New York capital of the Hipp-Hopp and 2013 cultural capital of Europe.

That makes Marseille with its more than one million inhabitants an interesting creative center - no comparison, of course, to other major cities, but surrounded by a beautiful landscape. A reason for me to take a closer look at Marseille as a potential work place.

That certain something

La Bo [a] te, the small innovation factory, as it calls itself, is centrally located in Marseille's old town, not far from the Vieux Du Port in Rue de la Paix. The 200 square meter room is cozy and chic at the same time - a combination that I have missed so far at coworking spaces at home.

Here, above all, people who are somehow dealing with the internet industry, but also lecturers and editors.

Event Location

There is a bar counter and work stations with computers on the wall, plus free Wi-Fi throughout the room. Slightly separated is behind the hall a conference room with projector on the ceiling and screen.

The owners regularly rent the large hall and the conference room for events, events and presentations. Also on big ones Company, In the evening, for example, there will be an Anglo-Mediterranean business meeting. For example, BeMyApp weekends are also regularly available here. An overview of the events of La Bo [a] te offers the YouTube Chanel.

Real offices for long-term coworkers

To the right of the hall (as seen from the entrance) there is a smaller room with proper office space and everything the coworker's heart desires: sensible desks, shelves, a printer and work areas separated by glass panes.

That's the concept of La Boate, as Martine explains to me, who bought the premises 2007: In the back area are the long-time coworkers, good 15 people, some of whom have known each other for years. If you want to work here, you can rent for at least three months and pay 200 Euro per month.

Open jobs for daily coworkers

Since 9 months, the front, open area with the computer workstations is also open to day-to-day coworkers: People who simply go for a day, work here or explore the Internet. 12 Euro costs the day, 8 Euro for half the day.

I like to come here from Paris or Lyon, I learn, which are only for a few days in the city and can not work in the hotel.

Other countries other manners

Nevertheless, the classification and pricing shows the changing needs compared to other cities: there are fewer people who are interested in renting a flexible workplace month or week.

And who instead only come by for a few hours to surf the internet, for example. Like a kind of cybercafe. And that's exactly where the origins of the coworking space lie: before the web enthusiasts converted La Boate into a small creative factory, it was an internet cafe.

Develop and share innovations

Martine, however, has precise ideas as to which clientele she would like to have here: "Who wants to make computer games, this is wrong. However, if you want to learn something via the Internet, you are welcome to come and surf for free, "she explains.

This is exactly the idea behind La Boate, which was also supported by funds from the municipality: not only to develop creative ideas together, but also to pass on the innovations. "It's about raising awareness of how society is changing, such as the increasingly mobile way of life and work," says Martine. And adds, sighing, "But that takes time!"

International cooperation

One thing I'm still interested in because I'm working on the international coworking network The business class net remember: What options do the operators of La Bo [a] te have to support me if I want to work here for a few weeks, for example, if I come from abroad?

The answer: So far, there is no infrastructure for international networking. But for the future this is quite conceivable. In any case, one is very interested in international cooperation.

    I studied one or two training courses as a mechanic, industrial master and then engineering science in automation engineering. Previously, as a mechanic, I was constantly passed around by time companies, among others in companies in Airbus or Phillipps. And 2 years after graduation I worked as an engineer in development and did an extra qualification in SP programming. Which approach would you recommend to me now?

  2. Tanja Handl

    That's a good thing - the nature of Provence is really a dream.

    I was the last time 2007 in Marseilles, then at La Cigale et la Fourmi - where you can work quite well, on a tiny roof terrace. However, is not everyone's cause, since very small and extremely familiar (and I do not mean "family" as in the brochure ...).

    That there are now coworking spaces is therefore a really positive development. Also in Graz one should arise. I hope your series is still running when it's done - then you're invited to join us.

  3. Tanja Handl

    Pretty! I hope, however, that you have not only worked in Marseille, but also found time for the Calanques. I am looking forward to returning to South France.

    • Simone Janson

      Also, clear! Yes, I found the Calanque great and I have written an article about it.
