An end to a search for space

GoFloaters is ‘pay-as-you-use’ service app that tech start ups, freelancers, artists, hobbyists and sales and enterprise teams can use. The app enables you to locate an affordable plug-and-play work, meeting and event spaces in Chennai, Bengaluru, Coimbatore, and Hyderabad. “We partner with those who own or lease and manage the space, while we extend strategic expertise and a technology platform to reach a wider audience,” says Shyam Sundar Nagarajan, founder of Gofloaters.\

“We charge about ₹ 35 per hour at cafés, ₹ 150 to ₹ 1000 plus, for a conference or meeting room depending on the capacity, amenities and locality, with no obligation for users to order food or choose the services of our partner spaces,” says Srivatsan Padmanabhan, co-founder of Gofloaters.

Speaking about its origins, Shyam says, “It began in late 2017, when I was looking for spaces for business meetings without having to shell out ₹ 400-500 over food just to occupy a seat in a café. That’s when I realised the importance of such workspaces that do not oblige users to pay for amenities.” Within a few months of starting up, Srivatsan Padmanabhan joined GoFloaters as a co-founder to get the ball rolling. This gave birth to the ‘Space Brand’ GoFloaters (gofloaters.com). GoFloaters

also runs events like Be Your Own Boss, freelancer-startup connect, business tear down, among others.
