Why are India’s co-working spaces getting popular?

=> Not very long ago, ‘working’ was synonymous with going to a physical space, sitting in a fixed cubicle, maybe teaming up with

fellow workers then heading home after a day’s work. This fixed 5-days-a-week, 9-to-5 routine would be repeated week after week,

month after month.

=> Work culture today is different. Technology has enabled us to be more flexible with our time and location.

People can sit in any part of the world and yet work together, at their time and convenience.

The traditional 9-to-5 routine is not so routine anymore.

=> Besides, there are more entrepreneurs and start-ups, more consultants and freelancers, and definitely

more fluid work systems. All of these factors put together have given rise to a spurt of co-working spaces,

and India is no exception to this phenomenon.

=> These shared office spaces attract individuals looking for a place to work, or a group collaborating on a project,

a start-up or an SME. They would rather use precious time and resources on their core offering than on investing

time in finalising a suitable workplace and putting the necessary infrastructure together.
