While your startup is in early stage or incubated, the one important requirement you have is the place where all team members and partners can come and work together. Usually, startups operate from their founders’ homes but at times homes do not provide the conducive environment. Renting out a place in commercial hubs can be really expensive along with hassle to manage it operationally. That’s where the concept of co-working space kicks in. A group of people jointly rent out a place or someone manages a place that startups can rent out as per their needs on affordable prices. The Hive is one such co-working space that offers a place for startups to rent out along with availability of basic amenities. The Hive Located in the capital of the country, The Hive was founded in January 2016. It was built to cater to the needs of entrepreneurs and freelancers who need a working place with basic amenities at reasonable cost. The two bright minds behind this fantastic idea are Muhammad Abdul Wajid and Owais Zaidi. According to Zaidi: It is a community space for the promotion of entrepreneurial musicians, artists, freelancers and small companies. This is the first project of the duo but they plan on expanding their concept and build nine more The Hive premises across the country. What do you get?
