WeWork India Announces New Workspaces Customized for Traditional Indian Businesses
In-line with its strategic vision to expand its presence in India, WeWork – the global platform for creators that provides collaborative workplace solutions - announced the opening of Vi John building, a collaborative workspace in Gurugram tailored for homegrown, traditional Indian Business and Enterprises of all sizes. In response to the operational requirements by the traditional businesses in India, WeWork inaugurated the first customized workspace in Mumbai earlier this year, and is now adding this new workspace in Vi John building to meet the increasing demand.
The new workspace has been designed to help cater to the specific requirements of Indian small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) and enterprises, as well as new-age startups looking for economical workplace solutions. With a seating capacity of 1351 desks, the latest workspace will offer flexible solutions for members to cater to their individual needs with an underlying emphasis on resource efficiency.
Since entering the India market in 2017, WeWork has been providing innovative and collaborative workspaces with over 47,000 desks in 28 locations across NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Pune. The new full-service workspace in Gurugram will custom-create solutions for traditional Indian businesses who have a need for reduced risk and overhead costs. The new location will also provide easy setup and all other member benefits at transparent and attractive pricing.
