They’ve already made their decision to splash out on a creative space of their own. A safe haven for their startup and its vision and it has us whistling wistfully at them! Don’t believe us? Check out this list on cool startup offices in India then!
1. Truly Madly
Truly Madly, an app that is dedicated to helping people find love, has an office that reflects that philosophy. Their main office in Delhi has been designed in the sleekest and the polished way possible, with interiors that foster a casual environment but remind that “finding love anywhere” is possible! An open area for working with only a few closed rooms (mostly for meetings) and a casual “Snack Bar”, lit up with fun-n-funky colors completes the whole office.
Hike, India’s first messaging app, has an office that ‘sends’ (see what we did there?) that message across! They have taken every precaution possible to ensure that their staff members are leading a healthy lifestyle. From a cozy nap room with “Good Vibes Only” emblazoned across the wall to an open cafeteria with a huge screen, doubling up as a space for meetings, to a gym – they’ve planned it all out. When the passion is fueling your adrenaline at all hours, you need all kinds of ways to recuperate and keep up. Hike knows is and is ready for it!
A startup office that is truly unlike any other! The design of this office is completely unique to them. From fairy lights to pictures of employees hung up on the wall (also decorated with pretty lighting), they’ve created an incredibly homey-y feel for all their team members. But don’t be fooled, SutraHR ensures that their team morale is flying at an all-time high with inspirational posters, brainstorming areas and more.

AdPushup has an incredibly strong and bonded team which helped form the office as it is today. Located in Pitampura and sprawled out across a whole floor, the team designed their office together which consists of a conference room, cabins, a recreational area and a reception and a separate area for quick power naps (with bunk beds!) as well.
Formerly known as GroupOn, Nearbuy got the kind of upgrade that everybody dreams of and it definitely lands a place on the “cool startup offices” list. Initially working out of their humble abode in Saket, Nearbuy moved to a sprawling office in Gurugram. In addition to the 32 conference rooms, they’ve got a cafeteria reminiscent of the Great Hall from the Harry Potter movies with five-spread lunches and snacks being served daily. Colorful walls and windows are a given (we are talking about startup offices here!), along with a designated recreational area with table tennis, PlayStation, TV lounge and more.
Known for the “quirk” factor and bright colors, Chumbak office (also known as “Chumbak Studios”) reflects this particular ideology in their decor as well. An office that is bustling with colors, interesting lights, a big team, 1 dog (Hugo) and 1 fish – this is one office that truly and happily embodies their quirkiness in their office.
Ibibo has seen their teams giving their work their very best, so they have ensured that they provide the very best to their teams. This, of course, translates to a bright and colourful office with motivational sayings painted on various walls. A colourful conference room plus a scenic view from the office and you’ve got yourself an inspired team!
