91Spring­board to launch cowork­ing hub in Panaji

The DQWeek (Mumbai) - - REGIONAL NEWS - DQW NEWS BUREAU Pana­jai

Delhi-based co-work­ing space provider, 91Spring­board is mov­ing its head­quar­ters to Goa while also opening a hub in Goa which will of­fer over 300 cowork­ing spa­ces in the heart of Panaji. The com­pany, which has op­er­a­tions in five met­ros in the coun­try, chose to make Goa their new home be­cause of the qual­ity of life and op­por­tu­nity that the state of­fers.

The co-work­ing hub will open by Oc­to­ber 15 on 18th June Road. “The idea is to cre­ate a com­mu­nity. We feel there is a lot of scope for more co-work­ing spa­ces in Goa,” co-founder Pranay Gupta said.

Over 4,000 peo­ple, in­clud­ing 650 star­tups and free­lancers, cur­rently func­tion out of the 14 co-work­ing hubs that 91spring­board runs across In­dia.

Aside from shared work­ing spa­ces, 91spring­board also of­fers con­fer­ence facil- ities, a recreation zone, Wi-Fi, knowl­edge ses­sions and round-the-clock ac­cess to star­tups, multi­na­tional com­pa­nies and free­lancers who sign up for the cowork­ing spa­ces.

Ini­tially, the com­pany will move 30 of its em­ploy­ees to Goa with an eye on ex­pan­sion in the near fu­ture. “From here we will grow and we look to con­tinue our hir­ing in Goa,” Gupta said.

“Poli­cies do take time but the im­por­tant thing is the at­ti­tude and we find that in terms of at­ti­tude, Goa is pos­i­tive. No other metro in In­dia has the di­rect con­nec­tiv­ity to other met­ros the way Goa has,” Gupta goes on to ex­plain.

With the buzz around Goa’s startup ecosys­tem, the fo­cus on co-work­ing spa­ces has be­gun to in­crease. Soft­ware and Technology Parks of In­dia is also on the verge of opening a co-work­ing space in Panaji near the Goa po­lice head­quar­ters.
