I thought I’ll write about where we are based and a bit about our neighbourhood. We are in a place called HSR Layout, a leafy suburb south of Bangalore, about 20kms from the city centre. We spend our time here designing and developing our products, finding and learning new technologies, cracking problems, figuring out how to run a business and above all enjoying each other’s company.
Our office, nestled among a series of residential blocks, is a three storey building. We used to be on the third floor of the building but have since moved to the ground floor as it’s a bit bigger (850 Sq Ft to be precise). The office is pretty modest with an open plan workspace, a meeting room, a discussion area and a rest room. We sit facing each other in little islands of desks and we love the free flow of energy and interaction that open offices offer. We do have a shared terrace to hang out for small treats.

Kannan, Ravi, Krishnan and Suresh sit here. Mohamed and I sit just a few feet away.
Our neighbourhood is dotted with several local shops; bakeries and fast food serving affordable local food; and a temple to protect us from evil competition and bad engineering. Well, it’s not a bad place for a start-up. If you are around, please do drop by.
You’re always welcome here.
