Neetish Sarda, Founder of Smartworks, India’s leading provider of agile workspaces has been named as the Promising Entrepreneur of India at The Economic Times Promising Entrepreneurs of India 2019 event which was held on March 29, 2019 at Hotel Sahara Star in Mumbai. Renowned celebrities Ashish Vidyarthi, Arjun Rampal and Shilpa Shetty gave away the trophy to the winners at the award ceremony.
Understanding the dynamic nature of India’s corporate real estate market and the rising demand for a fluid workspace environment, Neetish, instead of joining the family business, chose to become an entrepreneur, founding Smartworks in 2016. Under his able leadership/guidance and his vision, Smartworks has garnered an impressive footprint of 2.1 million sq.ft. across 9 key cities in a short span of 2 years. With a strong focus on technology, innovative design and service offerings, Smartworks prides itself in providing office solutions to over 30,000 people who represent large enterprises, SMEs and start-ups.
“It is indeed an honour to receive this recognition from the Economic Times. I am extremely humbled to see Smartworks grow aggressively over the last two years. While I conceptualised the idea, this would not have been possible without the help and support of a great team who has worked day and night to translate my vision into a reality. This recognition belongs to all of us. Accolades such as this motivates us to push the boundaries further and continue to innovate in the ever growing industry. As corporates look for more cost-effective solutions that enhance productivity, help retain talent and enhance the shared economy concept, Smartworks is focussed on not just building communities, but also ensuring that member employees are productive in the workplace at all times,” said Neetish Sarda, Founder, Smartworks.
