In the beginning…
It was April 2017. Mayank Agrawal had recently left a successful career path in engineering and sales to pursue his dream of starting his own company. He had a product concept and was in the process of developing a business plan with several colleagues, meeting wherever and whenever they could to work on the plan.
There was one nagging problem – finding a quiet, private place to meet so they could focus on their plans. As any road warrior or remote worker knows, working out of busy public spaces is rarely fun or particularly practical. Between getting ear aches from noise-canceling headphones, begging baristas to keep an eye out on his laptop while he dashed to the bathroom or simply concentrating in a busy, noisy setting, making progress was challenging.
After moving from coffee shop to café for meetings, and dealing with the chaos of a public setting, Mayank was hit with a Eureka moment.
Looking at an unused corner space in the coffee shop, he mused, “If only there was a small private space here so we could complete our business plan without any noise and distractions. I bet the coffee shop owner could also make some additional money renting out the little space we need”. In that instant, the idea for ZenSpace was born. Three days later Mayank had completed a business plan, and we were on our way.
We’ve come a long way, baby…
Since then, we have self-funded our way to create a highly flexible, on-demand system, and IoT-enabled space for conducting business and/or private meetings – ZenSpace. We have
- Gone through 3 rounds of pod development to create a comfortable, tech-enabled space that shuts out noise coming in and going out.
- Developed a mobile/web app that makes searching, scheduling and paying for a private meeting space as easy as ordering a ride share
- Developed a patent pending technology platform and control system (the SmartBox™) that serves as the brains
- Worked with prestigious customers in piloting our ZenSpace at major events and public spaces
- Assembled a team of product, marketing, engineering, and sales experts to drive the ZenSpace concept forward.
As a team, our passion is second to none.
Where are we going from here?
Our mission is simple: to unlock the potential of people and places.
In creating ZenSpace, we are redefining the meeting experience for mobile business professionals and forging a new category of the SPaaS (SPace as a Service) market.
We pledge ourselves to serve the needs of the on-the-go business person. We fulfill our commitment by providing a high quality meeting space experience, delivering a consistent experience and making this as easy for you as we possibly can. Whether you are a customer seeking to schedule a presentation with a key prospect or a host who is looking to make the most of under-utilized real estate, ZenSpace is here to serve you.
We named our company based on what we provide – a calm, private place where you can focus on your task at hand. We also designed our company and culture around delivering on that goal. Of course, a name like ZenSpace just begs for a calming, yet whimsical, logo.
Altogether it matches who we are and what you can expect from us – calm, professional service, with a little bit of “chill” sprinkled in. We take our business seriously, while we take ourselves lightly. In today’s fast-paced, always-connected, on-the-go world we can all use a little zen.
Welcome to ZenSpace. It’s time to #GetYourZenOn.
