Back in September 2014, when The Mesh opened its doors to the growing workforce in Pune, by providing a homely yet professional workspace to start-ups, small enterprises, entrepreneurs and freelancers, it was with the aim to grow and make a mark in the co-working industry space.
Four years down the line, with that same aim in mind The Mesh has been taken over by Proteus Ventures Pvt. Ltd., to help it grow to heights like never before.
Our mission is to get energetic minds and bodies, together to encourage and inspire growth, through ideas, stories, work and play.
At The Mesh, we also believe that the future will be built by independent small business and the future of small business depends on the ability for people to move quickly from ideas to action. Ideas need motivation. Ideas need energy. Ideas need peace. The Mesh, creates energy. Simple as that. Come check us out at The Mesh, and watch your energy levels soar!
Work, on a hot desk by the cafe, while you sip on some of our fresh brews. Take a call, in one of our quiet nooks. Pump some iron, at our gym, in between meetings. Drop in to cuddle your little one at the day care. Or sit, on your equipped workstation and grind out your day's work.

The Mesh has witnessed our rise, and we are lucky, to be a part of the founder members. We had to just come in every day and work on our ideas, while The Mesh, did everything to fuel them. Services, events, and that much needed cuppa tea, when your head is bursting with work.
Services, is what The Mesh, has always been up to the mark with. Collecting mail, keeping our team engaged through Friday activities, natural and comfortable surroundings, have made work a pleasure for us at Curiositi.
My favorite thing about The Mesh is the easy access to facilities and network of peers (online and at each location) who I can help or get help from!
