The boom of startup culture in India has brought forth the need for co-working spaces. After all, not everyone can afford a swanky, luxurious office. Freelancers, entrepreneurs and young businesses are always in search of a working area that’s fully equipped with basics – Wi-Fi, electricity and a pantry. A co-working space provides all that at a reasonable price. Moreover, one often gets to interact with creative individuals from different fields and learn something new in the process. Below, we’ve shortlisted five incredible co-working spaces in the country. Take a look
