Sprout Box to start a community for start-ups
Co-working is a great option for startups, freelancers or consultants looking for better places to work or hold meetings in. It offers them a more favorable work environment over bedrooms or home-offices. The rapidly rising real estate costs in Indian metros have further added to this interest in co-working.
The idea is slowly catching up across Indian cities. Delhi’s NCR just got a new one. So what is it all about?
“Sprout Box is a community space for startups. One could work, collaborate, present, mentor and even invest here. It pleases us to be a part of the growth of someone. Hence the name,” explains co-founder Gagandeep Singh Sapra.
Sprout Box’s first facility is located across two floors. That’s 4000 square feet space with an eight people Conference room. It offers seating space for 40, with high speed Internet, Photocopiers, Printers and Scanners, Shared PCs, and small kitchenette on each floor. It also boasts of an open air roof top Cafeteria.
So what fuelled the idea of Sproutbox?
“Having been associated with startups from a young age, we witnessed the challenges a new business faces. We want to take away those pain points and ensure every new venture has a smooth take-off”, Rajeev Gupta, co-founder, Sproutbox says.
The company is working on the launch of its other Co-Working spaces in Delhi, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Goa and many others. International destinations are also in the queue. One membership fee would offer access to all future branches.
