With the number of startups growing across the world, the number of co-working spaces is also on the rise. In India alone, more than 50 co-working spaces have cropped up over the past two to three years. Some of these are operated by real-estate behemoths, while others are run from VC fundings.

Bangalore-based CoLife is a bit different. CoLife is not just a co-working space. Launched early this year, CoLife is a network of shared living and work spaces that operates under the brands CoLive247.com and CoWork247.com, respectively.

In September this year, CoLife raised US$1 million in funding from eminent investors.

Suresh Rangarajan is the founder and CEO of CoLife. His Eureka moment came when he discovered that there was a huge gap between demand and supply in India. On one end, developers were struggling with excess inventory, and on the other end, millennials were suffering with lack of supply of quality homes. This presented a huge opportunity in trying to bridge this large gap.

A Chartered Accountant by profession, he is an alumnus of the Yale School of Management. One of the early adopters of the internet world, he was part of the founding team of Citi-Times JV TimesOfMoney.com.
