Why is co-working at Golden Square beneficial to you?



Many entrepreneurs and professionals choose to work from home to save money. However, this may not be the best option for those trying to take advantage of the benefits what a physical office can offer. If you're looking to leverage the pros of traditional office space while avoiding the expense and commitment of a long-term lease, a co-working space can come to your rescue. Why? Read on to know –
Networking Opportunities increase

Operating from a co-working space will put you in close proximity to professionals of varying backgrounds and specialities, there is a chance for collaboration and easy exchange of ideas and information.  If you're looking to make business connections and learn more from these individuals then co-working space is definitely the best option.
Flexibility

In a traditional office space, you can get looped to a multi-year lease; co-working spaces like Golden Square are typically priced at a hourly and monthly rates and also based on the seats used. This provides greater flexibility to companies having to make a sudden change, be it scaling up or down. So if your business isn't ready to be engaged into a long-term lease, co-working spaces are your best options.
Easy to Setup

Co-working spaces allow you to get your operations up and running quickly compared to your traditional working hub. With phone, internet and utilities already set up for your business, this allows you to invest more time on your tasks without having to worry about furnishing and setting up your office.
In-house support Staff

Are you in need of support staff? Golden Square offices come with a complimentary, dedicated receptionist to answer and forward calls AKA the reminder services. However, most co-working spaces typically lack this benefit, we provide the option of having your own phone number and dedicated receptionist for your business purposes. Running errand services and appointment follow-ups are some of our flagship services at Golden Square, this is done in order to save your time and to provide you the best experience of co-working environment. The additional monthly fee will be inclusive as per services rendered.
Affordability of the space

Our co-working spaces offer substantial savings over traditional office space. Perhaps your company is a start-up and needs to save capital, or maybe you'd want to invest more into business opportunities rather than a typical office space. Whatever is the reason, shared and executive office space can help you save some bucks and still maintain the camaraderie, collaboration and even productivity that an office environment provides.
Although there are a lot of providers of co-working spaces, but only a few offer the high-profile locations, amenities, services and technological support that we at Golden Square offer its members.

Golden square now at the Central Business District – Golden Square


Imagine our grandparents walked into any of our offices right now, they’d for sure wonder how we get any work done at all. A lot of successful organisations today work in a very different way from the firms of earlier days. Dress codes are non-existent, ‘Good morning Sir!’ and ‘Goodnight Ma’am’ have been replaced by ‘Hey Bud!’ and ‘See ya June!’ and long formal emails and meetings have given way to concise text messages passed on across chat groups on different social medias.
However, the new generations of tech-savvy, internet-empowered employees have forced companies to modify or even eliminate policies that haven’t been touched for decades.
But coming to the bigger picture, has any of this really managed to change the corporate workspace? And are these changes justified?
We must say yes! Co-working spaces have brought in so much ease into the life of Millennials that working is now fun and innovative.

Say NO to traffic jams! Have an office in the Centre of Bangalore: Without the pain of traffic jams!


Blaring horns. Bumper to bumper traffic. Road rage… Bangaloreans have resigned themselves to these necessary evils as part of their daily commute, assuming there really is no choice. We beg to differ. You can say goodbye to traffic woes if you have your office in a strategic location. Like our new branch Golden Square CBD-South., which lets you have the best of both worlds: a prime location (after all we are in the Central Business District!) yet an area that allows you to beat peak traffic if you are living in South Bangalore.

Located just off Double Road, close to Lalbagh South Gate, near the Shanthinagar bus station in Wilson Garden, Golden Square CBD-South is at the beginning of the Central Business District for those coming from South Bangalore, ( Jayanagar, JP Nagar, Basavanagudi, Bannerghatta Road, etc.) Reaching this branch from these locations is smooth. So coming to office and leaving office can be a breeze if you live in South Bangalore, since the peak traffic jams happen more towards the north of this area.

During the day when the traffic is moderate one could easily travel to the rest of Bangalore, and have your visitors conveniently visit your office. You could also use other branches of Golden Square at locations convenient to your clients during the day for meetings and come back to the CBD-South branch before the rush hour starts.

The branch is designed as a convenient office space solution for teams of less than 10 people, with dedicated and virtual office facilities, meeting rooms and conference room.

Following dreams…



“It needs nerves of steel to follow your dreams,” says Meenakshi Shenoy, Founder of Corporate Database Recruitment Consultants, a senior level search firm.  While she may be talking about the start-up boom in Bangalore, the statement could well apply to her journey as an entrepreneur.
“The timing was right,” she says, recalling those early days of entrepreneurship.  “IT was booming and there were plenty of opportunities.”  Of course, there were challenges too. You have to be in the driver’s seat and never lose focus says Meenakshi.  She started small, with just 4-5 clients. Initially, clients would seek her services to recruit Project Managers or Programmers, but gradually as they saw her passion for recruitment and her professional services, the requirements and the clients grew bigger. Today, she takes great pride in being a boutique consulting firm catering to a very niche market.
We caught up with Meenakshi Shenoy for a free-wheeling chat to understand how the entrepreneurial landscape has changed over the years.  Here’s an excerpt.

What made you strike on your own as an entrepreneur?
I have always been an entrepreneur at heart. I started to develop the confidence to establish my venture. This is my passion and purpose. Success is finding joy in creating whatever it is you set out to create.

Didn’t you ever think about having your own office set-up?
I did toy with the idea of having my own independent office space but a serviced office works well in terms of costs, facilities and support services. You don’t have the headache of running an independent office. The Golden Square team is very responsible and professional and I feel safe even if I’m working late. Their customer care is amazing! We’ve moved into the virtual office zone today, which allows you to work from any part of the world.

Any logistic challenges that you faced then?
Initially I was sourcing only out of Bangalore. Companies wanted talent pool from all over India and having people relocate to Bangalore was a challenge!

What kind of changes have you seen in Bangalore’s entrepreneurial landscape over the years?
Earlier, people were averse to risk. They wanted a secure job and parental approval. In fact, many did not want to move from an Indian Corporate to a Multinational. Today, the younger generation is more willing to take risks. In fact, even failed entrepreneurs are the most sought after today! Startups have to have leaders who have the skills to lead!
The latest Global Startup Ecosystem Ranking by San Francisco-based Compass, rates Bangalore as the world's 2nd fastest growing startup ecosystem…
Bangalore has definitely made a dent. Actually, investments started coming into Bangalore when SM Krishna was the Chief Minister. Many companies moved into Bangalore then.
The entry of private equity funding and venture capitalists has encouraged a lot of start-ups. In fact, there are more start-ups than MNCs in Bangalore today! Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and the many success stories emanating from the Silicon Valley have inspired youngsters. In fact, even those in their 40s want to quit their jobs, move out of their comfort zone, roll up their sleeves and chase their dreams.

How do you think the start-up scene will pan out?
It’s a cycle. Some companies have made the cut and some haven’t as funding is shrinking especially in the last 2 months. Most Investors say it will pickup in 2-3 years. Investors are more keen on profits and will not have their investee companies burn cash and want them to save money. Startups are shutting, laying off people and investors pulling out funds and questions are being raised whether startups will last. Startups have to be sustainable. Confidence to back yourself is the number one challenge which one has to overcome. It is something that you need to keep working on as you take on bigger challenges in business and work. There are a lot of people wanting to be entrepreneurs but it requires a certain maturity. It’s not as easy as it sounds. I am not dissuading the youngsters here, but grey hair has its wisdom. It needs nerves of steel to follow your dreams. Resilience and Perseverance are the keys to achievement.

Looking back at your journey as an entrepreneur do you have any regrets?
It’s been an interesting journey with a lot of learning. I witnessed the Dot Com boom and the subsequent bust, Y2K, the emergence of start-ups…and today I work with some of the best MNCs and startups. The path has been challenging, exhilarating, frustrating at times but definitely fulfilling.
