“Her latest venture, Corporatedge is a testament to her belief and proof of her dedication and commitment to create lasting value through innovative solutions and propositions that support business growth”.

Corporatedge Offices are inspiring workplaces which are the premium in every aspect be its location, building, facility or service yet value for money for the Corporate who leases office space.

Our Story, the journey has just begun…I come from the city of nawabs, where I was born and studied in St. Mary’s Covent, R.D.S.O Lucknow.

Right from the very beginning, I was exposed to the ‘Nazakat‘ and the hospitable culture of the city of Lucknow and (the please, thank you, may I please ) the right use of English with no jargons and slangs from my school run by I.B.M.V ( Institute of blessed Mary virgin) nuns.

I am grateful for my schooling and college both. Did my graduation in Food & Nutrition from Lady Irwin to get into Dietetics, but as luck may unfold, was lured by a big advert in the newspaper which read “ Be a CAT in the rat race”. That lead me to pursue my Post graduation in Hospitality Management from the Taj Group of Hotels.

This was a great learning opportunity for me to iron out my knowledge in hospitality and be an all rounder to dazzle the customer with an impeccable service and knowing what it is to put a big smile on their face.

I got an opportunity to bring in the Business Centre/ Serviced Office industry for our Country., end 2004, having set up the Regus in North with around 7 Centres and setting them and running them profitably for this London-headquartered Company, I took a sabbatical for a year to enjoy the non-corporate life, this was the time which led me to explore my personal self, my hobbies, my passions and what I wanted to do as value creation for my country.

It was clear that I did not want to go back into working or consulting assignments which came my way, but identified the big service gap in the serviced office industry (which I had so passionately help Regus set up in our country.).

I felt there was a clear need of workplaces which could inspire people working in them, a place which boosts one’s creative side and which has the right mix of people, service, product, and transparency of every single penny an organization pays.

As Serviced offices are a one stop solution for an individual, Company or an MNC who require an office for themselves, be it a Representative Office, Liasion Office, expansion need, spill over or any Company downsizing , I did feel that one needs to have an edge over others in the same business..that gave birth to Corporatedge Serviced Offices.. and we formed the company in August 2012.

To set up a formidable business one not only needs the right amount of knowledge, experience, and commitment but also passion and creative out of box thinking, a heart of steel to help you through the rollercoaster of highs and lows in business and creating an important space for yourself making the competition irrelevant.

It’s been four plus years of business for us from opening doors to business in Jan 2013, we chose to be in the best building, the most prime location, a great address, CBD of Gurgaon, Cyber City and the 20th Floor to proudly offer the Millenium Offices which boast of a great 360 degrees view of Gurgaon.

Having served some very best fortune 500 companies, MNCs and more than those clients who were really happy with our service, product, and team, it encouraged us to open our second Centre in the platinum lead certified building 2 Horizon Centre, Golf Course Road Gurgaon.

Our second center is a testament to our uncompromised service and a really chic product which is been tastefully designed keeping in mind the end user and his requirement.

Corporatedge has the been able to deliver by far the best product, great locations, premium addresses and finest of buildings to the serviced office clients who need an office, meeting places, Virtual Offices, Shared/ Coworking Space, Video Conferencing, Ancillary services.

My dream is to be the No. 1 Indian serviced office provider, in service and hospitality with finest of the workplaces which we can provide to every Company, start up or solopreneur who needs support to start an office.

We truly believe in Make In India, Invest in India and are there to offer support through Corporatedge to Companies setting up an office in India.

It’s just the beginning for us and we are working on improvising and planning of great Serviced Offices with the best service for our clients.

My kind of workplace

My Kind Of Workplace

Work place satisfaction and productivity boost

Modern workplace environments call for innovation and inspiring design elements BUT What works best for an individual or a business?

Are open plan offices or a Coworking place more of a rage? Office cubicles? Private office suites? Open offices? Virtual offices? Work from home? What is your pick?

There are pros and cons for each kind of a design
  • Office Cubicles provide a sense of privacy, are an enclosed desk area but make the employees unhappy to be cut away from their peers and colleagues. Though it might offer lesser distractions, it also offers unsolicited distractions where an employee can be in his own daydreaming mode.
  • Private Office Suites offer senior workforce a better sense of urgency and commitment in their jobs. Since most of their work revolves around confidential meetings and discussions and conference calls where they need that private plush den to define their personality and years of experience
  • Open and Shared Offices are ideal for maximizing the yield on square footage and minimizing the real estate costs but are best suited for early stage start-ups, young solopreneurs and young millennial generation which craves to network and socialize
  • Virtual Offices offer more of a sense of pride to have an official mailbox and address and give an opportunity to have a larger footprint in various cities without being physically present. But it lacks the physical workplace aspect, and a person relies more on a road warrior agenda.
  • Virtual offices along with a Day Pass option of visiting your Mailbox address place and getting a flexible desk to work offers better opportunity and flexibility to sit out and work in a professional & chic environment.
  • Work from Home gives flexibility and ease of zero travel but the sense of dressing up and getting ready to nail the day and be on your toes to finish your tasks goes away. it offers far larger distractions and noise pollution than you can imagine.
It may help to boost your productivity to some extent but you are demotivated, lack interaction and networking, are totally out of sight and out of mind.

The new age offices

The new age offices

The smartest way to grow your business is to be in the best of environment and be looked after with warmth by a team of humans who understand your professional needs.

The 12 to 16 hours that an individual spends of his day are at his place of work.

Any company you might be heading or working for, you need a workplace which is ever welcoming, inspiring and goes with your identity. You carve out your own little corner where you sit and work, sip your coffee, chat, relax and unwind with fellow beings and meet and greet other professionals.

And of course if you are taken care of by a team of smiling and warm individuals who add value to your day to day operations and smooth working, it will be all the more motivating and a cherry on top.

This clearly is what one can get in a serviced office where everything is taken care of for you from the start.

In my personal journey of being associated in setting up serviced offices for our country for more than a decade, I feel that what is important is knowing the end user very well, the nature of their business, their likes and dislikes as well. Location being the key ingredient, a great building with a grand arrival experience, having a prestigious address is what boasts of your own credibility and where you work. All this with the right mix of a great product, an impeccable service and flexibility with warmth and personalised service is the demand of the modern era.

Today’s gen Y now needs a chic, cool and relaxed yet professional environment to boost their productivity. They look for a place where they can network, socialise as well as collaborate under one roof and that is what a Serviced office can offer.

And yesterday’s gen X requires the right amount of chic and cool quotient yet an extremely sanitised environment and peace of mind to work effectively. This is what makes the task of setting up a Serviced Office more challenging yet exciting.

As far as the design and id of the place goes it should be a place which provides an equal mix of common areas, cafe space, and working floor, director cabins, in built meeting spaces.

The smartest way to grow your business is to be in the best of environment and be looked after with warmth by a team of humans who understand your professional needs. To set up offices can be equally challenging, time consuming and involving huge funds. The challenge comes when you want to be in an A grade Office building and don’t need more than 300 to max 7000 sq. ft. of space. That’s when a serviced office comes really handy like a quick intelligent solution.

Corporatedge Serviced Offices was a dream for us (My husband and I). Our vision for the Company was clearly to be the most sought after, hospitable and premium yet value-for-every-single-rupee Brand for an individual entrepreneur, a start-up or any Company setting up and registering an office in India. Easy, Flexible, Chic and smart way of doing business.

Our values clearly get reflected when we design the serviced Office which is both inspiring and where people can feel the positive energy and our edge. Every nook and corner of the place is thought through and done with a creative mind which also takes care of the functionality aspect of the place.

The journey has just begun and we want to continue creating workspaces that are the most preferred, professional and customizable – and where each person is a Happy Customer!
