What if your workspace looked more like a super cool café rather than a cubicle? What if your boardroom had a bar attached?
Social blends the best of the office and the café. Social is the land of the free(lancer) and home of creative souls looking for an exhilarating alternative to a typical work day. In Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai, Social is a path-breaking urban hangout that’s designed to take you offline while still keeping you connected; a place where networking can happen even if the net’s not working (don’t worry, the net’s always working).
Social is a collaborative workspace, a hub for artists, designers, and innovators. It’s where entrepreneurs meet photographers, writers meet web developers, creative independents meet to bounce ideas off like-minded peers.
