The 2nd largest city in the state of Rajasthan squatting in the stark Thar Desert, Jodhpur has historically been the capital of the kingdom, Marwar. A popular tourist enclave dotted with amazing palaces, forts and temples, it's known as the "Blue City" or the "Sun City", amongst the locals of India. With its astounding old city circling a 15th century fort "Mehrangarh Fort" that is bounded by a wall with several gates, the city has expanded way past this over decades of growth. It's a great base for regional travel where photography buffs go berserk due to many of the buildings being painted the city's iconic hue of blue. An ancient city that flourished in the trade of opium, copper, silk, sandalwood and dates, Jodhpur's architecture made a mark across the whole of northern India. Coworking venues have now opened up in its alleys still reeking of its historical past in a city that is fast becoming a major education hub.
Local IT gurus are expounding that it's a good time to be an entrepreneur in India, as the market has matured from being just a bubble. Startups are hitting new highs and global investors are putting funds into the sector, whilst innovative Indians are attempting to create the next billion-dollar company. The IT sector ranges from e-commerce to fitness and art, as it's being driven by India's expanding economy, rising disposable income and the tech boom.
Jodhpur, as with the rest of India has its quota of new entrepreneurs giving up their day jobs to jump on the startup bandwagon. Coworking venues are supporting these intrepid souls whether they are students or seasoned professionals by giving them the space to mingle, collaborate and the space to get their stuff done before they rush to a street vendor to gulp down some hot and spicy "mirchi bada" (an Indian snack of chili plus potato or cauliflower stuffing).
