Maude joined Y-PARC in September 2011 and welcomed the first start-ups at the creation of Y-START incubator. As a Senior Project Manager, she helps companies and prospects in their implementation project. She is also responsible for the promotion and communication strategy as well as the organization of several events.
Having started her professional career with the Association pour le Développement du Nord vaudois (ADNV), Maude knows well the economic players in the region and works closely with the institutes of the Haute Ecole d'Ingénierie et de Gestion du Canton de Vaud (HEIG-VD). She has a wide network and experience that she uses to the benefits of project leaders, resident companies and partners in the park.
Competitive and dynamic, Maude is always ready to challenge her family and friends to both table football and badminton (as long as she wins!). She particularly enjoys wandering in the nature with her two horses.
Aurélie is responsible for Y-PARC's communication and promotion strategy. She joined the team in August 2020. Coming from the demanding watch industry, she brings with her 8 years of international experience in Marketing, Communication, Public Relations, Community Management and Advertising. For US-based Movado Group, she was in charge of marketing liaisons between North American and European markets, ensuring compliance by all markets and partners to all corporate guidelines. As Marketing & PR Manager for Frédérique Constant, she oversaw the nationwide communication campaigns, including digital, print and out-of-home advertising, as well as developed a strong press network.
At Y-PARC, she also wears the hat of property manager of the park and thus represents the interests of buildings owners, offering them peace of mind and time-saving services, a role she knows well since she is the co-founder of a start-up specialized in property management.
Originally from France, she arrived in Switzerland in 2011 but did not take the most direct route to connect these two countries! Her studies first brought her to Canada and the United States for her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, then to the United Kingdom for her Master's degree in Marketing.
She now lives in Biel with her cat and two rabbits, where she avidly plays volleyball with little talent but a lot of enthusiasm!
After working as a project assistant at Y-PARC in the summer of 2018, Anaïs returns to the team in 2021, this time as an administrative assistant. She handles administrative tasks for the entire team, in addition to running the front desk and reception.
Anaïs is always motivated when it comes to learning. She is interested in every challenge that is thrown at her, and won't hesitate to even instigate one. Her fear? Boredom!
In parallel to her gymnasium studies in Yverdon, her hometown, and her studies in literary writing in Bienne, she has multiplied her professional experiences in the fields of retail, assistantship and content creation.
In Anaïs' bag, there is always a book, no matter how big or small. As for her laptop, it is full of ideas for texts to be written, novels, short stories, may they be in progress or finished.
Anaïs strives to do the right thing, being as pleasant as possible, able to listen and to be heard. She who, as a little girl, dreamed of becoming a judge, does not cross any crosswalk if the light turns orange. With this uprightness, Anaïs brings to the team an easy laugh and a contagious smile.
