Puneet Chandra,CEOFor any business to sustain and thrive on a longer run, moving fast is no more a competitive advantage - it's a necessity. Setting-up office infrastructure essentially slows down the business and locks up capital. Therefore, companies need to get off the ground quickly, experiment projects, and swiftly manifest to newer locations. This is a distorted sense of reality in any business today. As a paramount requirement, every growing business needs an office that can cater to its two most basic requirements - accessibility and functionality.

Gurgaon based Skootr is changing the perspective of people by delivering easy office solutions that not only provides office spaces with all the amenities but increases the efficiency and output of the business by opening doors to transparency, comfort, and convenience.

Puneet Chandra, Co-Founder & CEO, Skootr,says, “We at Skootr want people to consume offices and not spend their money on furniture. We believe that investors by now have understood the harsh reality where 9 out of 10 startups failing does n’t really justify investing in office furnishings.

Changing the Mind-set to Harnessing Growth
In a span of just one & half years, Skootr has grown to manage 150,000 sq. ft. office space with 2500+ seats across seven facilities in four cities and has more than 195+ clients benefiting from their services. Recollecting the initial days of struggle, Anuj Saxena, Co-Founder & COO, says, “Convincing the traditional office space customers about the benefits of plug and play setup was a tedious process. Also, making builders/real estate owners believe in this model was a huge challenge.”

The Growth Story of Skootr

The commitment of the co-founders has definitely reaped the fruit of success, evident from its growth,reaching 2500 seats and anannual revenue run rate of US$4 million.

This is going to help us expand our stable & profitable business model across more cities. In the next 2-3 years, we plan to expandour network to 30 cities and increase the capacity to over 100,000 seats across the country.”
