Mr. Harsh Binani’s views on Smartworks
Mr. Harsh Binani’s main idea was to provide a service that is simple to set up, extensively adaptable, and future-proof. Moving beyond the boring offers of traditional business centres and co-working spaces. It tends to be a company’s choice only until it stands on its own, and is a vital consideration. The goal has always been to create fully serviced and customised offices. Where a firm may benefit from high-quality networking possibilities and expand while shaping the office to fit its own culture and ecology in the ‘Smartworks’ universe.”
Mr. Harsh Binani feels that, to keep the industry relevant for developing end-user needs, creative communities and innovative formats may attract newer tribes of local, experimental actors. A creative, synergistic setting like this might assist India’s flexible office space sector in advance into the future of work by nurturing an ever-fluid, collaborative space.
Recently, significant global investors with real estate interests and large real estate developers have expressed interest in the sector. As the industry evolves, more of these investments, particularly offshore funds, may emerge. New funding possibilities are anticipated to promote trust, improve financial viability, and ensure the country’s future profitability of flexible workplace operators.
The enormous pool of clientele, new centres, and a presence in all major cities are proof of Mr. Harsh Binani and Mr. Neetish Sarda’s perseverance and hard work in realising their objective.
