From 100 sqft. to over 25000 sqft. and counting!
The incredible journey of TaxiForSure continues…
29 January, 2015: TaxiForSure, the Bangalore-based taxi aggregater that saw a humble beginning in a 100 sq.ft. garage-equivalent room, has just moved to their swanky new corporate office that boasts of a 19000 sq.ft office space along with 4500 sq.ft. of cafeteria. Today, the company not only celebrates this key milestone, but also marks it’s headway into 40 cities in the country backed by a 1500 member strong team. All this in a short-span of 3 years…
Every inch of the new office is reflective of the brand’s personality. It’s fun, transparent, vibrant, and energetic; and has something for every individual working at TaxiForSure. The open office adds to the personality. Co-founders Raghu and Aprameya share the same bay as that of the strategy team and the COO. The CTO is in midst of the excitement of the product and technology team, the CMO is part of the buzzing marketing team and thanks to no cubicles and separate offices for leaders, the office is one large zone of energy and activity!
Speaking about the new office, Raghunandan G, CEO & Co-founder, TaxiForSure, said, “We wouldn’t have been able to make it this far without the enthusiasm and passion of our people. While we are happy to see so many new faces amongst us, it’s also heartening to have as many familiar faces in the office as well. This indicates that we have been doing the right things to be able to retain as well attract great talent! The vibrancy of our new office is indeed a reflection of our people and I’m looking forward to crossing many more milestones with the team here!”
Aprameya R, Director & Co-founder, TaxiForSure, said, “It just seems like yesterday when Raghu and I would wait for the phone to ring for our service. From then to now, the fact that we have provided over 5 million rides just goes to show that an idea can touch several lives when it is powered by the right energies of the right kind of people! We are happy to have all the employees from our corporate office under one roof and provide the right platform to ideate and execute strategies.”
Bright colours, ample sunlight and great fun posters across the office ensure the environment is not dull for even a moment. From funky meeting rooms to a bean bag room, TaxiForSure employees have many more reasons to huddle and think big! And if an employee does feel the need to unwind they can indulge in good food, soak in lots of sunshine, play games or take that quick nap in the bunk beds
The new corporate office is located on the 3rd floor of Salarpuria Tower 2,Koramangala in Bangalore. All the creatives have been managed and created internally at TaxiForSure and there are many interesting nuances for employees and visitors to discover as they explore the new office space.
