Gorakhpur has joined the league of Dubai, Mumbai, Bangalore and New Delhi! The common factorr is business scenario, specially availibility of office space. Now one can have a shared office in Gorakhpur, thanks to a joint effort by two youth of Gorakhpur.
Arun and Vibhor have come up with the first ready to use work space at prime location of Gorakhpur for professionals at hourly/monthly basis. Till two decades ago, Gorakhpur was indisputably the crime capital of Uttar Pradesh. In fact, the BBC once gave it the moniker ‘India’s Chicago’, for it had all the elements of a mafia-run city, from syndicated crime to gangland bosses. Of late, the city has gained prominence on the country’s political map for another reason—it is the Lok Sabha constituency of the state’s chief minister Yogi Adityanath. Something futuristic like a co-working space for startups in the same city, therefore, will be seen with both hope and scepticism. Hope, that the new-age economy and entrepreneurship are going beyond the metros and inspiring the youth in small towns.
Arun Gupta (30) identified the huge gap in the co-working industry wanting to launch Startup Cafe in Gorakhpur; A ready to use work space as opposed to high rentals and maintenance hassles that are typically associated with the traditional office spaces. Co-working space are the new solution for entrepreneurs and freelancers who are short on funds and space. A friendly environment space that lets people work at their own pace. It gives you your freedom within a work setup you can work at your own pace and take a break whenever you want.
Arun who holds a business graduate degree and masters in animation, worked in the domain of digital marketing and e-commerce segment for clients like Amazon, Snapdeal and Flipkart.
Apart from Ecommerce business Arun joined his family business in his hometown (Gorakhpur). He was curious to do something more than his family business, he kept meeting and discussed about the scope and opportunity with Vibhore for co-working space in Gorakhpur, hence they proceeded to establish Startup Cafe in August, 2017. The very first co-working space in Gorakhpur.
