New Delhi (India), December 16: India is a country of diverse cultures, languages, and regions. It is also a country of immense potential, with a large and young population, a growing economy, and a vibrant entrepreneurial spirit. However, not all parts of India are equally developed or prosperous. While the metros and Tier 1 cities have witnessed rapid urbanisation and industrialisation, the Tier 2 and 3 cities have lagged behind in terms of infrastructure, employment, and quality of life.
This is where Mikro Grafeio, a social impact startup, comes in. Mikro Grafeio, which means “small office” in Greek, is on a mission to create 100,000 job opportunities in Tier 2 and 3 cities in India, thus enabling local economies to thrive. Mikro Grafeio intends to achieve this goal by offering integrated workspace and workforce solutions, advisory and consulting for businesses to help them set up operations beyond metros and Tier 1 cities.
Why Emerging cities ie. Tier 2 and 3 Cities?
Tier 2 and 3 cities are the emerging markets of India, with a population of over 400 million and a GDP of over $240 billion. These cities offer several advantages for businesses, such as:
Lower operational costs: The cost of living, real estate, and labour are significantly lower in Tier 2 and 3 cities than in metros and Tier 1 cities. This translates into lower overheads and higher margins for businesses.
Untapped talent pool: Tier 2 and 3 cities have a large pool of educated, skilled, and aspirational youth who are eager to work and learn. These cities also have several reputed educational institutions that produce quality graduates every year.
Higher retention and loyalty: Employees in Tier 2 and 3 cities tend to have lower attrition rates and higher loyalty than their counterparts in metros and Tier 1 cities. This is because they have stronger family and social ties, lower stress levels, and better work-life balance.
Social impact and sustainability: By creating jobs and opportunities in Tier 2 and 3 cities, businesses can contribute to the social and economic development of these regions, reduce the rural-urban migration, and promote inclusive and balanced growth. They can also align with their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals by reducing their carbon footprint and supporting local communities.
