Mr. Siddharth, Founder & CEO, Kabadiwalla Connect, during his session said, “Chennai produces roughly 4500 metric tons of waste per day of which 2000 metric tons is wet waste. Currently, there are about 200 composting and biogas centers across the city. The residential seg ment alone contributes about 68 % of waste sent to our landfills while the commercial segment contributes approximately 16 %. Halls, Sc hools, Institutions contribute about 14 % and the Industrial sector about 2 %. We have allocated a lot of our efforts on user research and product market testing to connect the informal sector directly to households, apartments and other stake holders in an attempt to smoothen the process of waste management. I am glad to report that as of today Kabadiwalla Connect has so far diverted approximately 50 million tons of waste but we also understand that there is a lot more work ahead and the starting point for which is educating the public.”

We are glad that we have successfully reached the 4th edition and hosted Kabadiwalla Connect today. It is imperative that we help support and highlight such issues so that the socially aware amongst us have more options to tackle issues such as waste management and educate those who are unaware on the urgent need to do so in order to protect our environment. We look forward to highlighting more such pressing issues in the future to educate our community members who can learn and in turn educate those close to them.”

Co-working spaces: An Economic Game Changer

(prsubmissionsite) November 14, 2019 –Lately, it is not surprising to google co-working spaces and be overwhelmed by the amount of players that pop up in the search results. With the number of new large and small players, setting up shared workspaces it is safe to assume that the concept of co-working spaces has become popular and such spaces are in high demand. Co-working spaces are also proving to becoming economic game changers that helps support young India’s entrepreneurial spirit.

 

Many of the large organizations and smaller companies are consistently shifting to co-working spaces as they see tremendous benefits that they may not have been able to avail in old school individual owned or leased office spaces. Many experts believe that by 2030 co-working spaces will incorporate about 30% of all office spaces. The rapid growth of co-working spaces mirrors the trend that it appeals to the majority of the workforce. The demands and needs for sophisticated, connected infrastructure make co-working spaces an ideal option for entrepreneurs, MNCs, SMEs, freelancers, and remote workers. While most of us understand that, co-working spaces are a deterrent to large expensive commercial spaces and a breeding ground for knowledge sharing. Coworking space Chennai allow for a lot more such as:

 

Time is Money

 

Co-working spaces allow entrepreneurs and start-ups to start work immediately as they do not need to burden themselves with setting up the infrastructure required for their business. Simple things such as interior designing and procurement of office furniture can also be a time consuming process that can be a hit or a miss at times. Co-working spaces usually are well-researched ergonomically designed spaces aimed at the comfort and requirements of the new gen work force. Infrastructure goes beyond just the space and workstations but also looks into all other ancillary services from runners to virtual CFOs and HR suites. The enhanced infrastructure and support services assist the entrepreneurs or start-ups gain their client’s confidence that translates into business revenue. This in turn helps smaller players gain more business and helping in their growth, which would have been harder in a traditional office space.

 

Putting capital to good use 

 

Coworking space Mumbai offer trendy ergonomic and visually appealing modern workspaces to create the right work environment for their employees. Setting up and maintenance of such workspaces do not come cheap. Also at times, these spaces require additional support agencies that just add to the cost. Designed to be adaptable to the needs of freelancers, small businesses, start-ups or large corporates, co-working spaces typically work on a leasing model where large, small or one-man armies can rent out workstations on an hourly, daily, weekly, or long-term basis, further helping in cost reduction. Fully fitted workspaces and services, frees up capital, that can be utilized by businesses to focus on their core services or products helping their bottom line from the get go.  

 

Boosting Entrepreneurial Spirit

 

How often have we come across a friend with a great entrepreneurial idea for a small or hyper-localized business? Alternatively, the story of someone being discouraged to open up a small business due to the tremendous overhead costs that are required to start is also not new. Co-working spaces negate these issues by creating a shared economy that help these entrepreneurs realise their dream. By providing flexible packages with shared amenities and resources, Co-working spaces enables small business owners to focus on getting their operations off the ground, rather than worrying about fundraising or paying back debt.

 

Also for those that dream of being the next unicorn start-up, most large co-working spaces also have incubators or networking opportunities that put these start-ups in touch with VCs that can help gain the funding required. This is one of the main reasons that India ranked third in the global start up ecosystem, according to the Economic Survey for 2018-19.

 

Transforming Tier II cities

 

With increasing disposable income and availability of ample talent pools at lower costs and plenty of space to grow, Tier II Indian cities will become investment destinations for corporate India. While Tier II cities have their own local players, many national and international brands are also entering these cities. The new age economy and availability of shared workspaces have reduced the need for migrating to major cities for business opportunities. The rise of co-working players will definitely benefit entrepreneurs and start-ups by putting them in touch with investors, industry experts and provide exposure to the rest of the country for association or acquisition helping with the growing of sustaining local economies. 

 

Conclusion

 

Co-working offices are more than just spaces that have workstations as there is implicit skills transfer; the impact of reduced capex on designing and inhabiting an office space or investment in employee upskilling can provide a major boost to a business’s bottom line. They work as economic catalysts, i.e., a company can precipitate a fundamental change in technology or business. Co-working offices also attract the right talent; encourage new opportunities, and eventually help to boost the local and regional economy.
