This Co-Working Space Is Redefining The Work Culture At Calcutta!
In the age of the millennial, a lot of changes are being ushered in across various levels of the socioeconomic scenery. From the capsule hotels in Japan to the open air offices in the Silicon Valley, we have witnessed a lot of innovative ideas take birth in the last one and half decades across the globe. One such concept which has found many takers across the world since its inception barely a decade ago is the concept of a co-working space.
The idea of a co-working space fundamentally differs from that of a business incubator or serviced office facility. This is not a brick and mortar structure where people can only go to work alone but also a place of ideas, collaborations and personal networking to blossom. It is a way of working that facilitates people of similar values and mentality to work independently as well as synergize with each other. At a time, when more and more people are gravitating towards the idea of being entrepreneurs, work-at-home professionals or just travelling for business, this is a creative solution that brilliantly caters to all their needs.
Co-working spaces not only provide respite from the monotony of isolation that most work-at-home freelancers face, but also give the new age start-ups the convenience of having a fully functional work space at the fraction of its cost. This is especially beneficial from the environmental point also, as it encourages sharing of different facilities leading to an optimum use of available resources. The concept has struck a chord with large corporations as well as the regular working individuals. Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba has found this as an attractive option to increase office space in Shanghai, a city where space is at a premium. All these factors have contributed to roughly doubling of the available co-working spaces each year in the span of the last decade.
This innovative idea has finally found its way to this part of the world thanks to this amazing co working space called My Cube. Located near the heart of the traditional business district in the city, My cube offers excellent co-working space for all freelancers, start-ups and business travellers alike. This place boasts of a centralized location which offers easy transport options, coupled with convenient timings for the working professionals, opening their door at 10 in the morning till 8 in the evening.

We got to interact one on one with the founder of My Cube, Vandan Churiwal, who graduated in Accounting and Finance from the University of Warwick, UK and returned back to India to handle his family business. This soon led to the foundation of My Cube, because he wanted to create something that he could call his own - What better than to create income from an already existing asset. He believes that My Cube is a community where everyone gets the opportunity to network, branch out and grow together as a team or even individuals.

It was an extremely insightful and resourceful event, to say the least. The brands presented their insights about the following and it was one of the best learning experiences so far. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Vandan Churiwal for the invitation.
To conclude I would say that this place definitely gives you that extra edge over others in terms of flexibility and connectivity, and it is only a matter of time before they change the working scenario in the city!
