    Colab now on the 3rd floor too, with a total of 450m2

    We are glad to announce that Colab Fribourg is now 450m2 in size, with several new individual offices between 15m2 and 40m2. Build your own universe in your private space, and meet other coworkers when you want to! Need to change atmosphere? No problem, work in an open-space one day or two, or simply have a drink in the lovely café on the first floor.

    These private offices are situated right above the Colab Fribourg workspace, in an old early 1900’s chocolate factory building in
    the heart of "academic” Fribourg. A conference room for up to 12 people on the same floor and a small kitchen are available.

    Plan & prices available soon. Contact us for a visit.



    Colab Fribourg is a coworking and event space where entrepreneurs, techies, creators, hackers and consultants can create tomorrow's solutions by collaborating in an interdisciplinary environment.

    Work in our quiet and comfortable workspaces or have coffee and a discussion in the lovely café of the Villars Swiss chocolate factory downstairs.

    You decide day by day.


    Check in with us, and enjoy the first day at Colab for free. Then sign up for another day, week or even longer.


    Colab, more than just a workspace.

    Growth Hacking

    Jeudi 16 mars, 17h00

    Le Growth Hacking est un mélange entre une méthodologie et un état d’esprit à adopter pour favoriser l’évolution rapide d’une startup dès sa naissance et lui permettre de grandir rapidement. Après avoir effectué une formation de 3 mois à Amsterdam à la Growth Tribe Academy, Jeremy et Mehdi partagent avec vous leurs visions du Growth Hacking, leurs expériences au sein de l’école ainsi que la façon dont ils l'ont implémenté dans leurs startups respectives.


    Mehdi Izemmour est un jeune entrepreneur qui s’est lancé dans l’entrepreneuriat dès son plus jeune âge. Aujourd’hui âgé de 20 ans, il a co-fondé Kieed en 2012, et fondé Glitty en 2015. Grâce à ses compétences en Management & en digital Marketing, il a permis à sa dernière startup de commercialiser des produits à travers plus de 80 pays en mois de deux ans.


    Jeremy Vaccher est un jeune entrepreneur suisse, qui dès 16 ans a ouvert sa première Start-up. Il a rapidement pris goût à l’entrepreneuriat et a par la suite cofondé Visihome, une entreprise de virtualisation de biens immobiliers en 3D. Cette entreprise a été rachetée. Aujourd’hui, il se consacre à 100% pour la gestion de la marque et des produits Magnetic qu’il a intégré dans plus de 700 commerces physiques à travers la Suisse.

    Laetitia Albinati

    Je m'appelle Laetitia Albinati, j'ai "presque" 35 ans et je vis à Fribourg.

    Je suis actuellement en charge de la comptabilité et des ressources humaines (environ 200 collaborateurs) de Fri-Son.

    Mon parcours professionnel se résume en 2 mots: atypique et atypique.

    Laissez-moi vous le présenter en quelques lignes: un CFC d'employée de commerce, une formation en soins infirmiers, quelques années derrière un bar, des heures de bénévolat au sein de différents festivals et plusieurs milliers d'écritures comptables.

    Ce chemin professionnel représente ma grande fierté... et reflète une grande partie de ma personnalité.

    Forte et enrichie de toutes ces expériences, je décide de me lancer un nouveau défi professionnel et de gagner en indépendance.

    Pourquoi ce projet là? Parce que je le trouve innovant, prometteur, accessible et plus que jamais d'actualité.

    Je me réjouis d'ores et déjà de vous rencontrer et de vous exposer plus en détails ce service de gestion comptable.

    Alexandre Hernan

    Depuis plus de 7 ans dans le domaine de la finance et de la comptabilité, je suis actuellement associé à Synergie Fiduciaire, basé à Yverdon.

    En 2009, j’ai été promu Fourrier (sous-officier supérieur). Je suis donc en charge de la comptabilité de l’armée à la caserne DCA (Défense Contre Avions) à Payerne.


    En parallèle de mon job de comptable, j’ai plongé dans le monde de l’entrepreneuriat en reprenant la direction de OX Watch, une manufacture horlogère d’Yverdon qui propose des montres mécaniques suisses d’un style nouveau.


    Parce que les échanges avec d’autres entrepreneurs sont importants pour moi et m’ont permis de m’enrichir, j’ai voulu mettre en place un espace qui y serait dédié. C’est pourquoi depuis novembre 2016, j’ai créé un coworking, le blueLab, dans l’ancien site de l’usine Leclanché à Yverdon. Son style industriel avec son espace lumineux est idéal pour la création et le partage. En quelques mois, le blueLab compte déjà une dizaine de coworkers et accueille des événements After Work pour les entrepreneurs de la région.
