Up until recently, Gorakhpur was the crime capital of Uttar Pradesh and was infamously known as “India’s Chicago.” The crime rate was exceptionally high and wars continuously raged. For the longest time, Gorakhpur had all the elements of a mafia city, from gang crimes to syndicated crimes.
In what seems as a turn for a very bright future, Gorakhpur gets its first ever coworking space, StartUp Cafe. Coworking spaces are gaining momentum and are being looked at hubs for growth and development. They have also become a common ground where upon ideas are shared and worked.
In an attempt to boost the start up ecosystem and to give entrepreneurs in Uttar Pradesh the right kind of infrastructure, two friends. Arunn Gupta and Vibhore Jaiswa, came together to start the first coworking space, StartUp Cafe.
Arunn Gupta and his partner, Vibhore Jaiswal, realised the need for this start up space and launched StartUp Cafe, the first coworking space in this part of India. Arunn Gupta believes that it is important for people to have a space where they can think, ideate and create and that a coworking space is the perfect solution for people who do not have enough resources.
StartUp Cafe provides more than just the basic amenities. Located in one of the prime areas of Gorakhpur, the Cafe also provides 24 hours electricity, unlimited high speed internet, meeting room with video conferencing facility, fully airconditioned office rooms and a cafeteria with tea/coffee vending machines.
The Cafe is self funded at the moment and is a working space for 7 people. The ultimate goal of Arunn and Vibhore is to build a space that helps bring people from different communities together, creating a wonderful working experience in the process!
