IWG eyes doubling its coworking space network in India

International Workplace Group (IWG) is planning to double its co-working office network in India in the next 36 to 48 months. Presently, the company has 120 workspaces in 16 cities across India.

Harsh Lambah, Country Manager, India, IWG, said, “In each of the Tier II cities, we have tasted tremendous success. In Indore, we have opened our third workspace. In Ahmedabad, we are going from two to four workspaces. In Chandigarh, we have opened two. We have expanded in Visakhapatnam and Jaipur. There is a lot of commerce happening there, and hence a lot of potential in Tier II cities,”

The co-working office space provider is looking at adopting three strategies to grow its network, including organic growth, acquisitions and the franchise route. 

“We are looking at markets where there is demand, where there is the availability of good commercial real estate stock in major metros or Tier II cities and where we will grow organically,” Lambah stated.

He added, “There has been a lot of fragmentation and consolidation happening in the co-working space right now among the 300 to 500 players in India today. The company has "not found any deal to provide value to our businesses yet.”

The company is aggressively rolling out its franchise model across the globe.

“We have recently franchised Japan as a country to one party. We have done it in Taiwan and we are looking at aggressively rolling out the franchise strategy in India. Very soon we will launch our franchise strategy in India,” Lambah further said.
