Collaborative co-working space network Awfis Space Solutions today launches its first community workplace in Pune at Baner. The newly launched workspace has a capacity of 600 seats and company will target corporates, SMEs, startups, and freelancers. It will also aid as a proximity centre for employees rendering flexibility and adding productivity.
The idea of coworking has been grasped not only by start-ups and small working groups but also by mid and large sized corporates which offer them well-integrated and synergised environment.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Amit Ramani, CEO & Founder of Awfis said, “We were overwhelmed by the demand and need of experience led workspaces in the Pune market and decided to commence our operations here. It has been an exciting process for us to tap into the best opportunities and provide convenient new-age spaces for the consumer. We are offering the Pune community, the opportunity to interact with other community members across India and benefit from our workplace culture. This will allow them to expand their network in large markets. We are looking forward to creating an ecosystem in the city, enabling collaborative innovation and business networking opportunities.”
With the city emerging as the hub of investment in real estate and a gamut of new-age start-ups, Awfis aims to build a network of entrepreneurs and business community in the city through its convenient, just-in-time and inspiring work environment.
The office workplace today is witnessing a rapid change led by shrinking densities as technology is reducing footprints of the work-desk. The workplace transformation has begun in earnest and will see the biggest changes in the next 5-7 years due to factors like changing lifestyles of individuals, technology progressions, increase in intracity commute time, and health and well-being taking the centre stage. With the real estate market in India revamping, there will also be a driving demand for office spaces focused on flexible leasing terms.
Sensing the opportunity, Awfis has signed up a new centre at Viman Nagar and aggressively exploring opportunities at Bund Garden, Magarpatta, to name a few. In the next few months, the company also plans to enter Tier II markets.
