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. …

CORPORATE TAKEOVER OF CO-WORKING SPACES

In the last two decades, co-working spaces have undergone a sea change in infrastructure and functioning. From small, crowded rooms with people hunched over desktops, to large, well-appointed spaces that bring together a collection of people across industries, these places have truly come of age. There was a time when entrepreneurs and start-ups were the ones who opted for them. Today however, large companies form part of a significant chunk opting for them as a viable space option to run entire teams and business verticals.


Startups have always gone for co-working spaces, and the reasons for it have always been obvious. Lack of financial resources, the pains of starting up, the effort to do more with less yet give the team a place they can call their own made such spaces a viable work option for companies who were just starting out. It helped give them access to new talent across industries, helped them mingle with fellow entrepreneurs, incubate ideas and helped foster a sense of com…
