Ankit Samdariya,CEODesigned and built as part of 1MM sq.ft integrated lifestyle destination called VR Bengaluru, The Hive is the only ground-up co-working development in India and perhaps in the world. The Hive at VR Bengaluru offers 100,000 sq.ft of refreshingly designed workspaces with unmatched amenities.

Inspired by the words of the Greek philosopher, Aristotle, who said “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work”, The Hive was born, with the sole motive to create a workplace ecosystem powered by the elements of flexibility, collaboration & a vibrant atmosphere, thus letting people access the gamut of carefully curated amenities, right at their doorsteps. “While starting the project in 2013, we aimed to solve two problems for the city’s bustling start-up and business ecosystem.
One was to provide flexible & vibrant workspaces in a cost-effective manner and the other was to bring in the integration of social infrastructure to increase happiness and productivity quotient of our member companies.” recounts Ankit Samdariya, CEO - The Hive. With its pioneering Work-Play-Grow philosophy, The Hive enables its members to integrate personal, professional and social lives in ways not imagined before.

The Hive boasts a client base of more than 500 members representing 60+ companies at its Bangalore centre. Some of the noteworthy clients include Conde Nast India, iD Fresh Food, Shopmatic, Abengoa, Airbus & more
