La Halte celebrates its 9th anniversary today!
9 years of development, 9 years of new members joining ans leaving for new projects, 9 years of various collaborations, 9 years of challenges, but above all 9 years of fun and merriment!
Such a wonderful anniversary is the occasion to make a small retrospective of all these years at your side.
How was Halte 24-7 Coworking born?
The adventure began in 2013, with the more than precious help of Caroline Comtois - Philippe's partner - who participated in the design of the premises. At that time, coworking spaces were not numerous on the island, so the choice was limited.
The goal was to allow small businesses to find affordable space without worrying about logistical issues such as furnishing, and for freelancers to find a place to work that was different from a coffee shop and, above all, less expensive.
And that's how the concept of Halte 24-7 Coworking was set up, including the comfort of accessing the space 24 hours a day, because entrepreneurship requires much more than the usual office hours.
Why is our coworking space so special
The diversity of our members. Each member can bring something to another. The possibilities of partnerships and mutual aid are favored thanks to our common spaces and to the events that we organize regularly.
Indeed, several times a year, networking events are planned to allow members to get to know the other professions around them, but also themed evenings in partnership with local businesses, such as the Siboire recently, the opportunity to meet people without having the impression of working.
Working at Halte 24-7 Coworking means benefiting from quality spaces and feeling at home. In addition to having coffee, tea and snacks available, our offices and spaces benefit from an excellent luminosity. In addition, the lounge allows us to organize a number of meetings and company parties and our terrace allows us to enjoy the sunshine in the summer. Moreover, for almost a year now, a small vegetable garden of aromatic plants has been developed, for the greatest pleasure of all.
Anxious to continue to develop Halte 24-7 Coworking and the satisfaction of our members who are so faithful to us, we continue to make our events evolve, like recently the Poutine lunch, where all the members were able to share a dinner in company of a succulent Poutine from Ma Poule Mouillée.
We also like to put them in the spotlight, like with our miniseries of the moment "The Woman Entrepreneur of Halte 24-7", which aims to promote female entrepreneurship.
We thank our members for their continued support over the years. Whether it is members who have joined us in the past year or those who have supported us since the beginning. We look forward to nine years of existence and many more to come!
