CoWorking as a concept started on a tiny scale in 1999 for coders, and took a more organized form in 2005 at San Francisco, CA as the Hat Factory by Brad Neuberg. There are currently 15,000+ coworking spaces across the world today. On a Global scale, the top 5 Brands who use cowork spaces are Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Alibaba & Samsung.
In India, the CoWork space concept has recently taken shape in 2017-18 as a mode of working for primarily Startups and Freelancers. But Corporates, SME’s, MSME’s and SMB’s are also joining the Coworking space bandwagon. CoWorking is disrupting the conventional norms of doing business. Co-working spaces provide entrepreneurs, especially startups, infrastructure facilities to help them grow, as they try to make it big in the industry. However, co-working spaces are not limited to digital nomads, startups, and entrepreneurs alone anymore, the co-working concept has entered the mainstream and how!
On account of rising commercial real estate prices, co-working in Mumbai is now a favoured option for Corporates, SMEs, MSME’s and SMB’s too. Moving to co-working spaces in Mumbai, helps them cut-down on unnecessary costs and time, and invest that money in making the business more productive and profitable.
Increasing real estate prices, overhead expenses, need for networking opportunities, flexibility, quality, etc., make working out of a coworking space in Mumbai, a sought-after option for Corporates and SMB’s. According to some industry estimates, a company can save as much as 30% on the operational cost alone, by choosing a coworking space in Mumbai.
As per a recent JLL report, in January-June 2018, co-working spaces in India, leased 19 lakh sq ft, compared with mere 6.4 lakh sq ft in the first half of 2017. In 2017, co-working spaces in India formed 5% of the leased space in the country. The number of coworking space users across India is pegged at 13.5 million by 2020.
Of the overall demand for co-working space in India, 40-45 percent comes from corporates and large enterprises. Of the balance, small and medium enterprises along with individual professionals contribute 35-40 percent of the demand with 15-25 percent from start-ups. Also, a co-working space is likely to lead to cost savings of 20-25 percent in markets like Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Pune compared with leasing a traditional office space. Currently, there are around 350 co-working players/service providers operating an estimated 500 shared workspaces across the country, compared with less than 30 in 2010.
