The interim capital of the state of Uttarakhand, Dehradun sits in the Garhwal region near the Himalayan foothills about 236km north of the capital of New Delhi and about 168km from Chandigarh. Targeted as being a "smart city" it's been developed as an alternative growth centre to ease the population explosion in the Delhi metropolitan region. Historically known as Dehra, Dehradun is a hill town in the Doon Valley snuggled in between the Ganges and the Yamuna Rivers. Known for its basmati rice, lychees and bakery products, Dehradun is famous for its awesome landscape, mild climate and for being the gateway to the surrounding region of tourist destinations such as Auli, Mussoorie and the Hindu holy cities of Rishikesh and Haridwar, as well as the pilgrimage circuit of Chota Char Dham. Locals gossip in Hindi, so you should either brush up on this language or your hand pantomime skills if you wish to ask for directions to the nearest coworking space.
Cloaked in numerous educational and research institutes and central government offices, Dehradun has had a commercial and information technology upswing over the last 20 years. The city has established software technology parks and special economic zones throughout its boundaries plus its home to regional offices of Spice Digital, Serco and Genpact to name a few. There are a host of training institutions such as the Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy and the Indian Military Academy plus the list goes on whilst the government is planning to construct a film city.
India's thriving tech scene has matured from being just a bubble with startups hitting new highs and global investors putting funds into the sector. Innovative Indians are attempting to create the next billion-dollar company with a focus on markets such as e-commerce to fitness and art. Driven by the country's expanding economy, rising disposable income and the tech boom, coworking venues are popping up on its streets to cater to its local IT gurus where they can get innovative before rushing out of the door to gorge on some dal and raita with their rogan josh.
