The office is profuse with couches, a dedicated room for employees to crash whenever they feel like taking a power nap, a pool table and an XBOX

Inshorts (formerly News In Shorts) is one of hottest mobile startups in India. Started in 2013 by three IIT drop-outs Azhar Iqubal, Deepit Purkayastha and Anunay Arunav, the Inshorts app — as the name suggests — provides short and crisp news within 60 words to update you in minutes.

Located in the heart of Delhi’s media hub Filmcity (Noida), the office represents its open culture. The startup was incubated at Times Internet’s TLabs. It has attracted three rounds of funding — US$20 million from Tiger Global in July 2015, US$4 million led by Tiger Global in February 2015, and a seed round in 2013 from Times Internet and Flipkart Co-founders.

The philosophy basis which the Inshorts office has been designed is ‘the interior reflects its organisational ethos’, according to CEO Iqubal

“Our office represents our work philosophy, the open layout represents our openness in culture wherein everyone is welcome to contribute ideas and views across the board. There are no dedicated seats as there are no rigidly defined roles,” he says.

“People are expected to don different hats at different times in a fast paced organisation like ours. The office is also profuse with couches, a dedicated room for employees to crash whenever they feel like taking a power nap, a pool table and an XBOX for those short breaks that would keep them motivated. We do not emphasise on a dress code because we think that one’s work reflects his/her attitude, not their clothes. Overall, we wanted to build an office which employees can look forward to everyday,” he adds.

According to Purkayastha: “While pursuing my degree at IIT Kharagpur, I was considering many organisations to pursue an internship but none of them offered a culture that I was looking for. So at Inshorts we built that culture.”
