After two and half amazing years of growth, Spalba moved to a new and bigger office space in the premium business complex of Emaar Digital Greens, Gurugram on the occasion of Vijaydashmi.
For any startup this one is from the holy list of ‘Firsts’- First Funding, First Office, First Client.
We chose this day specifically for a reason, Vijaydashmi is the day of victory. As we are building from India for the world, we really believe in the power of what this country’s startup ecosystem holds and what it can do to this world.
For anyone who is building a company and believes in building with a purpose, Indian philosophy is a guiding light.
The Western template is based on the assumption that we live only once. When you live only once you want to create perfection in this life itself. You are driven by a sense of urgency. You want to do everything right, you want everything to go your way.
Indian philosophy, on the other hand, believes in rebirth. There is no sense of urgency as we believe people evolve, things transform. Our template is a spiral— we move upwards and downwards.
In the western model, there is a beginning and an end. But ‘Happily Ever After’ is not a phrase you hear in Indian stories. Ramayana ends with Sita being exiled. Vyas’s Mahabharata ends with Pandavas ascending to heaven. There is no great climax leading to a full stop.
And just a mere belief in this philosophy helps you in being calmer as a leader who is not feared to make mistakes and fall. There’s no poetic pressure that you have to make it work, there’s a belief of believing in your #Karma.
The search for meaning and value in the work that we do is perpetual. You will be amazed to find how pragmatic Indian philosophy and mythology is when it comes to business and economy. We have worshiped Lakshmi with Saraswati because without wisdom wealth is dangerous. The only way to tackle money is with Saraswati because she takes away fear.
The ideal approach is to build a business as a ranga-bhoomi, not a rana-bhoomi
We strive in creating a ranga-bhoomi which means a playground where affection dominates the enterprise, a possibility to create an ecosystem where we grow by enabling others to grow emotionally and intellectually. This eventually leads to everybody growing materially.
The beautiful space will allow our team to grow leaps and bounds in the coming years.
