The Minoterie Talents-Coworking moved into its premises in June 2013, in the heart of the Pixel Pole in Villeurbanne, which is home to 74 businesses and organisations in the cinema, video games, internet and multimedia sectors.

Created at the initiative of the Imaginove competitiveness pole and the CREF, this first workspace dedicated exclusively to professionals in the creative and cultural industries aims to link and coordinate communities incarnating entrepreneurial dynamism and innovation in the territory.

Minoterie Talents-Coworking, connecting the creative community

"In this sense, the Minoterie Talents-Coworking is an ideal environment to break down the isolation of young entrepreneurs and project sponsors" stresses Maryline Saint Cyr, the director of the CREF.

In a logic of cooperation, the Minoterie Talents-Coworking plans to forge links with other co-working spaces co-working in the Lyon conurbation and with various professional networks.

"With this veritable incubator, we intend to boost, accelerate and promote the development of innovative companies, the emergence of collaborative projects and new economic models" states Tanguy Sélo, the director of Imaginove.
