Creative Destruction – Coworking
“New lifestyles prevail once we have replaced or “destroyed” the old ways of doing things.”
This is what we call Creative Destruction. On 10th September, 2016, Vikas Lakhani (Founder, InstaOffice) took the stage at the Coworking India Conference 2016 to shed more light upon how there could have never been a better time for Coworking to creatively destruct the Real estate Industry by creating value for both landlords and tenants.

The effects of this process can be felt at both ends positively – Users as well as Owners. While users get a better experience at affordable prices, property owners derive higher absorption and rental yield.

A look at the global real estate trends indicates the presence of a large addressable market and unmet demand for small and flexible offices. Some estimate the size of this market to be a whopping USD 70 Billion.
Looking at the numbers and the optimism that market shows for Coworking, it wouldn’t be wrong to call it the long-awaited solution to the disconnect in the office space industry. Coworking has proven to be an amalgamation of miscellaneous monetary and ancillary gains that… Click To Tweet
