If Mumbai is the city of dreams, then Pune is the city for kick starting them. Perfect weather conditions, affordable (comparatively) lifestyle, and a sweet hub for building a network, Pune offers a lot and then some more. No wonder our city acts as a playground for so many startups; I mean if you have an idea then this city will most definitely hear it out (and most likely let you turn it into a reality).
However, while people brainstorm, their budgets are modest. Execution requires money and skill, but ideas require individuals to come together, think and work. It’s not always possible for creative minds to invest in offices and professional bases right at the start; that’s a long way up ahead. So the best option which suffices is a shared working space. It gets the job done fairly well. In fact, it adds to the charm of just pushing yourself and establishing. To solve your workplace woes, here’s a compilation of all the places you can nest at. Check them out!
Perhaps the most common name, Regus is a versatile solution for all your entrepreneurship problems. Fully furnished offices, Wi-Fi zones, business and conference lounges, you ask and they’ll provide. Located in Baner, Viman Nagar, Bund Garden road and a few other places, Regus is your go-to place for shared workplaces.
Another fantastic place to kick-start your dream startup, Trios offers all the amenities which a permanent office does. A perfect place for brainstorming and client meets, this co-working place located in Baner is an excellent option.
Officially the first shared work place in our city, The Mesh is a proof of how the work environment is changing. Affordable for freelancers as well as established professionals, The Mesh should be the most viable option in your list. It has special rates for female entrepreneurs and is located in Gokhalenagar.
This workspace is unlike any other you’ve ever seen. Why? Simply because of its environment and the way it’s built in order to focus on collaborative work. As a freelancer, I’ve visited this place twice and have always experienced amazing interactions with fellow professionals. Not just a work space, The Daftar acts as a serious inspiration zone for those stuck in the rut. Location is Baner-Pashan Link Road
E-Loft is more of a chilled lounge for working rather than the typical serious and dull work spaces. However, it’s still very affordable considering their lavish services. This place even has a gym area, ya know, for working your body and not just your mind. E-Loft is located near Inorbit Mall.
Personally, I love this place for its coffeeshop vibes. If you’re looking to work in a warm, friendly environment with your fellow freelancers, then Cowork Studio is the place where you need to be. It has an office park as well, perfect for a much needed break. Cowork Studio is on Sakore Nagar road, Marigold complex.
Located in Bavdhan, Bootstart coworking space is renowned for its flexibility. Most work spaces come with more than what you’ve asked for, but with Bootstart, you can choose exactly what you want. Just get your laptop and settle down in one of their cozy chairs; your work day is sorted!
