What was your idea/inspiration behind starting up a new venture in the
co-working space market?
Das: During my journeys as an entrepreneur, I realised starting
your own venture is the most courageous thing to do. Initial years of starting,
entrepreneur feel the need to connect, collaborate, grow and focus on core work
while growing his business. IndiQube was started keeping the Grow and Network
ethos in mind. Finding a platform where all your organization space needs are
taken care of while you focus on your company was a biggest challenge.
SMEs end up either in some residential apartment / some old
commercial building or standalone buildings due to availability of limited
funds. These available spaces come with rigidity / no corporate branding / no
corporate ambience with lack of spaces to collaborate and network. IndiQube is
a means to office space and not an end in itself. While providing technology
platform to collaborate and grow, we provide customised interiors office spaces
with all value-added services to help companies to focus on their core work.
What are business opportunities in co-working space market in India?
Das: Bangalore is a startup capital of India and we believe that
it is the future of how our nation will grow.

the United States in regards to the amount of active independent workers
worldwide, making it the perfect environment for a new coworking industry to

members). The trends are changing, co-working is the future, and big teams in
big businesses want a piece of it.
