Inspiration from Nature- Basic Building Blocks for Scaling a Business.



What is the basic building block for your Business? Well before you answer that question lets take a look at nature.



You will notice that there is a spiral pattern getting repeated.











This pattern is drawn more precisely like this.




Notice how the spiral can go on till infinity. The ratio of the sides of the rectangle is 1.618 and is known as the Golden Number. It is called so because this pattern is found so often in nature. It is almost like a basic building block of nature.

Nature builds one tiny "fractal" with the Golden Number / Golden Ratio and replicates it for scale. The same principle can be used for scaling a business. Get the Golden Number for your business and then it scales. For Starbucks it is the combination of the good quality coffee, the ambiance etc. Once you get the right mix the business is ready to scale. For Google it is search and being a repository of all information. For LinkedIn it is connections. For Facebook it is friendships.

The Golden Number is the inspiration for the Golden Square Business Centre Logo.



One needs to get the basic building block right for creating a business which will scale. All the components just in the right proportion. Getting it right needs insight, work, luck, time. And all this happens when the business is small, when it needs to be nurtured and needs a home. Golden Square Business Centre is that home, a safe harbor and has been that for more than 1000 companies in Bangalore since it started in 1995. While we have helped our Customers get started and helped them in their growth, we are growing as well. In a few days the 4th Branch of Golden Square will be operational in JP Nagar Bangalore. 


Interested in the Golden Number or Phi?

Those of you who have read the Dan Brown's, Da Vinci Code will recall Phi.

Will I miss my flight?

To most of the city, it was just another day. Work went on at the Vittal Mallya Road branch of Golden Square just as usual, despite the sudden showers. The construction work at UB City blocked the roads, as it had for weeks now, but this didn’t hinder the flow at Golden Square Serviced Offices. Even lack of parking space had a quick fix in their hands. Mani was given a car to use as a shuttle, driving people to and from Cubbon Park, where ample parking space was available.


Yet, on this day, efficiency wasn’t the exact word of choice on the mind of one particular man. As I said, for most of the city, it was just another day, but for Mr. Bhaskar, this day was turning out to be a nightmare. Even though his flight would depart in about two hours, he was nowhere near the airport yet, not even on the road! He was still stranded at his office at Golden Square. You’d think that getting to the airport wouldn’t be the most difficult task in the world, and Mr. Bhaskar isn’t a sloppy man either. …

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. Golden Square being one of the top co-working spaces across Bangalore is constantly …
