FAQ

Platform is one of the first Coworking Spaces in Nepal. We provide office spaces that are much cheaper than traditional offices since the workspace is shared by multiple different companies/organizations and freelancers, which results in an additional benefit of a community that increases productivity and encourages collaboration. Renting an office or a building includes very high initial investment and equally overwhelming monthly overheads. At Platform you get a fully facilitated office and event space, with no commitments or long term contracts, where members can focus on their work and not have to worry about the day-to-day of maintaining the office.

Many of you might have noticed that coworking is not registered as a word on Microsoft Word. The reason behind it is that it is a very new word and concept developed by Brad Neuberg in 2005. Coworking is defined as the use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge. Since 2005, number of coworking spaces in America alone has increased from 1 to 781 as of 2014. The idea of coworking is proven and has been a new trend in cities and countries worldwide.

The Platform has all the necessities of an office fully covered. We provide 24-hour Power Back up, High Speed Internet (25mbps), Conference Room, Lounge, Library Corner, Free Beverages (Coffee, Tea, Water), Wireless Printing/Scanning, and a bunch of other services and advantages tailored to provide the best support for a budding individual. For more details, please see our Info Card available in the ‘Compare Memberships’ Section under Memberships.

Hot Desk is the most basic of our workspace offerings. Hot Desk is a workplace sharing approach where the same desk space is used by multiple individuals. In other words, in a Hot Desk membership you will not be provided with a designated or your own desk and they’re shared in a first-come-first-serve basis. Hot Desk Members have to clean up and clear the desk area when leaving so other members can use the same desk space after them.

Personal Desk on the other hand is a desk that belongs to you and no one else in the workspace will be able to use that desk as long as you are a Personal Desk member at Platform. Our Personal Desks are in cubicles with each desk having semi-partitions with the main focus to cater to clients that require privacy and silence to concentrate and focus on their individual work.

We suggest every inquirer to visit our space so that we can provide a brief tour of our facility. We want to ensure that our customers understand the benefits of each of our memberships so that we can assist them in choosing the best option for their needs and requirements.
