The story of Sheraspace
With dreams to contribute to the growing economy of Bangladesh, Sarjeena Maodud moved from London to her hometown Dhaka in the fall of 2017. In the process of searching for opportunities for innovation in different industries, she stumbled upon the world of interior design with a home renovation project for her new house. Like any other consumer, what she wanted was good interiors, but was instead met with a rather unpleasant experience that ended, a year later, with the realisation that a consumer could never be certain of the end result despite huge amounts of investment of their time, energy and money.
Deciding that a service that is meant to enhance one’s standard of living should never require consumers to be apprehensive about it, Sarjeena joined hands with Nizam Farid Ahmed to found a tech-first home improvement platform – Sheraspace in 2019.
A year into operations, the pandemic that was disrupting several industries was no exception to the home improvement industry, causing all of Sheraspace’s offline operations to go into standstill. But this co-founder duo decided to disrupt back at the disruptor by reimagining the delivery of interior design services with the concept of an Online Interior Design Consultation – a novel alternative to the traditional way of hiring a designer.
Hence for the first time in Bangladesh, home improvement enthusiasts found themselves with the option to avail expert interior design guidance in an affordable, short-term and hassle-free involvement – all from the comfort of their home, no matter which district, region or city they were based in!
