Gurugram: INDmoney

INDmoney’s move from a small office to a spacious, light-filled one on March 2 coincided with the news of the spread of the pandemic in Gurugram. A week later, they shut down the office. But that didn’t affect their work. Brimming with a quiet confidence, Ashish Kashyap, CEO, says: “Though it was proven that we could work remotely, we wanted to retain the space as a single congregation point. Because it reinforces the energy that translates into the company and the product that we are trying to build.” They came back “in a thoughtful manner”, opening the office on July 1, and the remaining work on the interiors is on in full swing, even as the staff have begun using it in a transient manner. For now.
