In this series, we are interviewing members of our club. So that you can get to know each other a bit better. Today we talk with Paula Semaan about her life and work in the region.
What brought you to the French Riviera? How long have you been here?
I arrived here in 2010 for work in Sophia Antipolis. Loved the region, went away a few years then came back to start Co d’Azur. A community, coliving and coworking project in the French Riviera.
Could you tell us about your professional career? What do or did you do for work?
I work for Cisco as a senior consultant and I’m the founder of Co d’Azur: www.codazur.com
A community, coliving and coworking project on the French Riviera. It organises workations for remote working professionals. Such as remote employees, digital nomads, entrepreneurs and freelancers.
Together, they live in a stunning villa on the French Riviera. Work together during the working days. And share meals, outdoor and indoor activities, good laughs and good memories.
Why did you decide to start your own business?
I myself, while in Copenhagen during the pandemic, needed to connect with a community. Wanted to work and share activities with them, and live in a nice villa in the sunny French Riviera. So, I decided to make it a reality!
