Co-working space like WorkLoft are build for startups, entrepreneur, small businessmen who seek to have a positive working atmosphere while they work. It helps women keep their mind off the daily chores at home.
It has been seen that most women are really optimizing for working from a co-working space.
Thus, in this tough journey of entrepreneurship, working in a co-working space seems to be a boon for women.
1. Flexible hours
Most women start small as a freelancer or sole proprietor. It becomes difficult to run a business from home and feels isolating & depressing over a period. It is difficult for them to work under such environment. With a co-working space, you still maintain all of the control and flexibility of owning your own schedule.Unlike other co-working spaces in Mumbai, WorkLoft is open 24/7. So that women can go in and out anytime they want. Therefore, no more juggling to finish your work before 7 pm!
2. Safety and security
In India, working in a safe environment is every woman’s concern today. As we all know there is no day and night in startups life.

4. Reasonable price
According to one of the Women’s web surveys, it has been noted that most of the women Entrepreneurs start a business from their personal savings. Owning a private office at an initial years of business can be challenging job due to cost as they have to balance their professional and personal needs and priorities. Thus, having a personal cabin or working in an open space at WorkLoft is the best and viable option as it cut down additional charges and save a lot of money which can be further used in demanding situations. WorkLoft provides all the amenities of an ideal office at a reasonable price.
5. Sharing, Collaborating and learning
