Cafés are great places to go when you have a short meeting or want to drink a good espresso while answering your emails or updating your social media. But you know as well as us, they’re not always designed to serve as a workplace, especially if you have a long workday ahead or if you’re looking to have a place to invite or impress existing and future clients. This is where co-working spaces come in.

Co-working spaces have been popping up all across the globe over the past 20 years (in reality, the first co-working space was actually in the 90s in Berlin!) and are meant to provide a platform for social interaction for people sharing the same values of autonomy, freedom and professional empowerment in their work life. Perhaps you’re new in Lausanne and looking for ways to build your business and networks, or maybe you’re already an established freelancer but need stay away from the many temptations at home (Netflix! Couch! Bed! Playstation! A pantry full of chocolate! A long bubble bath?!).

Don’t worry. This list will help you avoid being kicked out of bars and cafes and find an environment that’s right for you.

    Dear TLG,

    A new Coworking space has openend at the World Trade Center of Lausanne, suitingly named WTC Coworking.

    Daily, weekly and monthly options are available. As a Business Center several service companies are onsite as well as catering and other restaurations, a café as well as a kiosk. Parking spaces – no problem, we have plenty and a bus stop in front of the building going to the trainstation.

    Definitely worth a visit 🙂

    Thank you for your attention and warm regards,


  2. Hey, great post! I think coworking is a great idea of saving space and being around like-minded people always motivates me to get things done. I have not seen the Do It Better Coworking in Lausanne that is situated in Riponne.

    Great location and have a lot of options if you just need a place to work for weekends, after hours of an office.

    Check it out 🙂

  3. Hi TLG,

    Can you also add Sportworks ( The only coworking office in Lausanne focused in the sport industry.

    SportWorks coworking provides an unique opportunity for companies and professionals to establish themselves in the heart of sport at the home of many of the world’s International Sport Federations, creating a workspace for networking and interaction between sport federations, organizations and the sports industry.

    We also organize talks, social and networking events to gather the Lausanne sport community. We invite you all to come and pay us a visit.

    Thank you and best regards!

  4. Hi,

    Coworking Sous-Gare Lausanne has moved in the center and changed its name.
    Now, it is “Coworking de la Madeleine” (Rue Madeleine 5, Lausanne). We offer 12 dedicated desks in a nice old building (late nineteenth century) located in the city center and easy to access (M2, parking Riponne)

    See you soon in our new space!
