It’s difficult to get the right workspaces, at the right time, the right location and the right price, simply because most people aren’t sure how to go about finding them or even have the time.
But there has to be an easier way right? There is, it’s called meetingsandoffices.com.
Let’s read about the journey and motives of Mno:
How did it all start? From where did you get the idea for this?
I have been in the shared space industry from before the time the term Coworking was coined or WeWork came into being, having established one of India’s premium shared space offerings in 2007.
I realized early on that this is a revolution in the making and will change the way we approach workspaces forever. Being an industry pioneer in India I became intensely familiar with what customers need, what their pain points are and how to create a solution to address those pain points.
When I decided it was time to set up my own venture I naturally turned to the area of shared workspaces and how to make them accessible to users with minimum effort and hassle.
This is how meetingsandoffices.com came into being.
How is your venture helpful for today’s generation?
As more and more young people turn to set up their own ventures, viable professional
workspaces are becoming a greater challenge and setting up your own remains a resource drain.
Easy accessibility to professional plug and play shared spaces becomes crucial as it allows for a great work environment, good community connects, greater business building and with none of the associated hassles of creating and maintaining your own space. This is critical infrastructure for the business community, both start-ups, and SMEs.
This is exactly what meetingsandoffices.com offers to businesses.

What advice would you like to give to the aspiring entrepreneurs?
I have always maintained that starting up a venture is one of the most difficult yet rewarding things that one can ever attempt. There will always be hurdles and people who tell you why you won’t succeed. There will be times when you feel like giving up. Never, never, never quit. Maintain single-minded focus on your goal and one day you will build something worth being proud of. But that said, do listen to and evaluate inputs completely impartially and wherever needed make course corrections, pivot, and usher in change. Do what it takes to succeed, but never take an unethical shortcut. This is the meetingsandoffices.com mantra.
A Quote that inspires you or written by you?
When people tell you, you won’t succeed, don’t answer in words but in action. Succeed and
show them that there is a road beyond negativity. Never, never, never quit.
