After the culture of 'work from home', women entrepreneurs prefer working in an office set up today.
Co-working spaces in India are offering special facilities to women in the form of mentor sessions, creche facilities and networking to help them in their businesses.
Here are the top women-friendly co-working spaces in the country:
91springboard has emerged as one of the leading co-working communities with the largest number of hubs present across all key cities. Women being an integral part of the business ecosystems, 91springboard realised the need to encourage women entrepreneurs right from the beginning by introducing communities like Women Entrepreneur (WE) League.
WE League curates events to encourage, inspire, and mentor women entrepreneurs in their business ambitions. The platform helps women share tools, knowledge, and network to help each other lead, start, and grow.
WSquare is a collaborative workspace that provides a 'Working Desk' for women who are looking for an alternative to work from home or to just work independently.

The CoWrks team is a community of like-minded individuals who live the millennial lifestyle and believe in the power of a community. Cowrks is India's only large format co-working space provider which focuses on three things, carefully designed for female entrepreneurs - incredible workspaces, infectious energy and an ingenious network to tap into.
