With its unique history and magnificent landscape, the city of Nice is known throughout the world for its exceptional quality of life and unparalleled climate. The city and surrounding region is home to an exciting mix of local culture and a cosmopolitan community of international residents. From Monaco to Nice, Antibes, Cannes and beyond, the Cote d’Azur is home to an impressive network of successful women in business, with many local and expat mum entrepreneurs setting up small and growing businesses in a variety of sectors from tourism to food, lifestyle, wellness and fitness.
Due to its popularity with holidaymakers in the warmer months, many of the local industries on the French Riviera are highly seasonal. With several up and coming neighbourhoods, Nice seems to be moving away from more seasonal work to become a year round business hub. With technology making it easier than ever to work remotely and for growing for companies to promote themselves online, many resident women entrepreneurs in Nice have identified practical, year round business opportunities. With a number of successful mum-owned businesses in the area, many busy mums in Nice are enabling themselves to balance work with family time, enjoying the magnificent quality of life which the beautiful South of France is known for.
Professional Women’s Network Nice is the leading female networking group on the French Riviera. Nice Nomads is a professional networking group for freelancers, entrepreneurs, telecommuters and small business owners (both women and men). Not so much a coworking group as a support network who meet to discuss projects, share ideas and offer mutual feedback. From the logistical challenges of starting a business in France, to effective use of Social Media platforms, they cover a broad range of topics and activities. Riviera Startups & Entrepreneurs Networking is an informal group for all startup founders (women and men), entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts in the PACA (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur) area. The group regularly meets in Nice for “Apéros”, events and useful workshops.
La Verrière is an innovative 600m2 workspace in the centre of Nice for freelancers, entrepreneurs, developers, graphic designers and journalists to share Wi-Fi, coffee, and ideas. Set in what was one an art deco hotel ballroom (and then a swimwear factory), this unique space is free to try out on Tuesdays (by reservation). Workhouse Café is an Anglo-French family owned coworking cafe and space set in the vibrant Garibaldi neighbourhood. With a friendly coffee shop open to the public, their coworking space features space for 28 freelancers, 2 meeting rooms, a “cosy space” and access to a magnificent rooftop terrace with sweeping views over the hills of Nice. Joya Lifestore is a fantastic project featuring a restaurant, boutique and collaborative workspace, also set just off the beautiful Garibaldi Square. With beautiful Scandinavian inspired interiors, this creative space is ideal for “digital nomads” looking to expand their network and collaborate with others.
