This goes out to the entrepreneurs who are not ready to compromise with the quality of their working environment and want the best of resources within their outreach falling right into their budgets.
What could be better for a day to spend amongst the dynamic and innovative minds, who are ready to revolutionize the start-up market with their offsetting idea’s. It was a day spent in a co-working space provided by One Internet situated in the hub of Delhi- Connaught Place. Getting off at the Gate-7 of Rajiv Chowk Metro Station, I tracked down this place which was a 2minutes walk from the station. There was a small sign board at the entry point which was more of a stairway that led me to the first floor where One Internet was located.
I was greeted by Ms Smriti, the Community Manager for One Internet, who gave me a little introduction about the place and showed me around. The place was quite spacious with several open work stations. To my surprise, there was a small coffee place just like a cafeteria where people can hang out to take a break from their work.

Watching so many people work, I couldn’t resist my temptation to enquire them about their experience working in such a co-working place. I approached a team to have a little feedback of the place which was a startup under the name sponsifyme.com. They had been working there since past 4 months and are happy about the fact that how friendly and lively the space is!
“we do not get bored as long as we are in here! And with a separate cafeteria and conference room, this place is a perfect work station”, one of them said. They also exclaimed that their production rate has increased to about 80% after they got this office. said Nitin, Founder of Sponsify.com
The place not only served the startup, but also people who were about to organize an event. The place also provided support to a college guy from IIT- KGP who was working on his Wikipedia projects from there.
