Looking to tap into one of the most promising trends in the Indian economy — co-working — Creator’s Gurukul is an India-inspired shared office space and ecosystem provider for startups; micro, small, and medium enterprises; creative professionals; and service providers.
Full of innovation and opportunities, Creator’s Gurukul aims to turbocharge the Indian entrepreneurial environment by blending global best practices and collaborations and blend it with India-inspired ethos, innovations, design elements and inspirations from the golden age of India when the country used to be the leader in the world in business excellence, innovation and trade.
It aims to achieve this goal by creating green spaces with soul where industry leaders and brilliant entrepreneurial minds can co-work as well as synergise to exchange ideas and help startups overcome business obstacles. While there are multiple co-working providers, this model is differentiated and gain-share based — backed by a plug-n-play ecosystem which includes in-house digital, crowdfunding, media and global mentoring top-ups.
Founded in June this year by Abhinav Tandon and Mohammad Sirajuddin, Gurgaon-based Creato’s Gurukul claims it has been able to create a pull factor for people who are looking to become a part of the fast-growing startup economy and has a healthy pipeline of spaces to choose from.
Through co-creation, collaboration and co-working, intertwined with the common thread of a shared Indian-ness, Creator’s Gurukul aims to break the glass ceiling to make Indian entrepreneurship achieve its rightful place in the global business world.
Creator’s Gurukul focuses to create an entire global community of innovators and entrepreneurs for a mutual ‘trade of intellect’ that is centred in India. In a world that is constantly leapfrogging back and forth, trying to match pace with the progress of the digital age while craving to get back to its roots, Creator’s Gurukul aims to become the ultimate hub of entrepreneurship, innovation and excellence established at the threshold of these two ages.
Creator’s Gurukul provides a comprehensive setup to budding entrepreneurs to let their ideas take flight. They include:
- alliances with top industry corporates;
