Bengaluru: Balagopal KV, Growth Lead, Airmeet
Balagopal never owned a vehicle, and didn’t care for one. He would rent a Yulu two-wheeler every day to get to a co-working space, about 20 minutes from home. Since the lockdown, the co-working space has shut down, but he continues to work from home. “Since we had launched Airmeet just months before the lockdown, the timing worked out really well for us. People couldn’t hold physical events, and Airmeet specialises in conducting events and conferences in virtual spaces. We were a remote company before it became cool to be remote,” he says. Balagopal still uses Yulu, but for getting around the neighbourhood and buying groceries.
