When Vishal Gaba launched Movified, a social engagement platform for movies, he initially chose to work from home. However, as the team expanded, the need for office space became apparent. Since he didn’t want to spend time on setting up an office from scratch, he thought of hiring a co-working space in Mumbai.
“It’s necessary for the team to brainstorm together as it yields better ideas. I believe that working from a co-working space is not just a fad but necessity of startups. Firstly, a co-working space gives an office area without making a large dent in your pocket. Secondly, you are flocked by techies, startups, and entrepreneurs; and their help is readily available there. Thirdly is networking with these available talents – the most important unsaid part of the ecosystem,” says 30-year-old Vishal, Founder and CEO, Movified.
Research shows that startups who work in a co-working space are four times more likely to succeed than those who don’t. Working in these spaces ensures one will always be surrounded by like-minded, talented individuals and teams which can really benefit you in the short and long term.
We bring to you a list of co-working space startups from across the country, which are offering space solution to their brethren as well as large corporates – to save their employees from the hassle of traveling.
