Why Startups Should Work In A Co-Working Environment

There is a storm of startups and we are in the eye of the storm. Not in a bad way, but in very development friendly way. The last decade saw a record rise in the number of startups in the country. This phenomenon was even supported by our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi as he reinforced young entrepreneurs through his policies.

But being a young entrepreneur isn’t exactly a bed of roses. You have to push, pull, shove, tackle, scare, and impress people, all at the same time. Then comes the stress of making other people work for you. Because of the internet, most startups don’t need a functioning office. Social networking bridges all communication gaps and your company functions smoothly.

However, there is something extremely alluring about a working office space. Imagine a room full of like-minded people drinking coffee, making jokes, brainstorming and running a company on their twenty-something shoulders.

    Remember Don Draper’s Office from Mad Men? Or Harvey’s from Suits? A glass door office overlooking the business district screams of serious conversations. Any client entering an office will be a fool not to network with you.

  2. Minions under the scanner

    Working in the office offers loads of resourcefulness. All employees are directly under the scanner. This helps you understand the working ability of your workers (Minions) and will better help you judge each worker.
