In August 2016, we added Innov8 – a startup offering premium ergonomically work spaces for everyone, to our portfolio. By now, Innov8 has twelve work spaces located in five cities of India including Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Gurgaon, Chandigarh and Bengalore. Total funding amount raised by Innov8 so far is not confirmed but Innov8 has disclosed $4M funding raised in a recent Pre-Series A round led by Credence Family Office.
According to Founder and CEO, Dr Ritesh Malik this will mean opening three co-working spaces in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, with some of them as big as 1 lakh square feet in size.
The company also strongly suggested that it would look at newer geographies – Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad – only in the next fiscal year.
The company is also looking to make additional investments in building technology platforms for businesses along with customer-facing apps, and is investing in community experience while increasing its NPS (Net Promoter Score).
Ritesh added, “We will be heavily focussing on technologies, which will increase the experience of our customers. Further, we plan to take full control of some of them, for example, the WiFi, which is rated by our customers as highly important. So, we control the WiFi. Along with this we will invest heavily in data reporting tools, which will give us insights and feedback on how a different aspect of the co-working space is helping customers.”
Mitesh Shah, Co-founder and Managing Partner of Credence Family Office, added: “Co-working space is an exciting segment to be in. Innov8 has been able to clearly establish its unique proposition with its best in class design and community culture at value conscious price to its consumers. Innov8’s business model has demonstrated promising growth trajectory along with some of the leading names in the industry as its clientele. We are very pleased to partner with Innov8 and support them in their journey of creating a category of vibrant co-working spaces that exude design excellence and offer impeccable value.”
