“When I started up right out of college, there were no options for coworking and hence I had to work out of a small garage-like office. This meant I had to conduct meetings and interviews in coffee shops as I clearly couldn’t call them to my own office. These days a lot of youngsters are starting up early. They want to avoid the hassle of finding an office space, paying a broker, make long-term commitments, furnishing the place, etc and just focus on the business; especially when the team size is less than 10-15 people”, says Waqar Azmi, Founder and CEO of Sutra Services Pvt. Ltd.
Waqar further explains, “At MumbaiCoworking’s plug-n-play office, you can get started for as little as Rs. 5,000 per month within minutes without brokerage costs, long-term commitments or huge deposits. Another set of people that we’d like to serve are media professionals, CAs, lawyers, stock brokers, & freelancers working from home. Also, remote employees from companies having regional offices in Mumbai. Basically, getting a bunch of like-minded people to work, learn, and prosper together by providing a great work environment.”
The cherry on the cake is the access to Sutra’s very own open-terrace lounge, overlooking the Mumbai skyline; it can be used for creative brainstorming sessions and casual client meetings. Quirky decor masks the walls of the lounge and can give any upscale restaurants in Mumbai a run for their money. If you’re tired from a long week, they also have informal hookah sessions every Thursday on their lounge where you can interact with other members.
Despite Mumbai’s soaring office rental prices, MumbaiCoworking has managed to keep their prices remarkably low without compromising on their offerings. Their budget friendly prices start as low as Rs. 5,000 for a floating seat and go up to Rs. 7,000 for a fixed seat inclusive of access to meeting rooms. Members can also avail discounts when they book bulk seats or take up the entire 8-seater, 14-seater, or 16-seater rooms. MumbaiCoworking also offers meeting/conference rooms separately on a half, full day basis for Rs. 3,500 and Rs. 5,000 respectively. You can also get a daily pass at just Rs. 500.
