Calicut has always been a commercially important place in Kerala, as it was the sea port through
which Portuguese traders led by Vasco da Gama first landed in India. They were followed by other
Europeans like the French and the British, who wanted to trade with India. If Calicut was famous in
those times for its fine fabrics, spices, coir products and cashews, today, it is renowned for having a
plethora of talented IT professionals and budding entrepreneurs. The city is fast developing into a
major exporter of software, and a startup hub. Favorable government policies, a relatively crime-
free environment, connectivity, and plentiful availability of utilities make Calicut a preferred
destination for those wishing to start their business.
Launching a business often means big investment. Employees are needed, equipment has to be purchased, and office space has to be leased. Unfortunately, most startups are not in a position to take such a big leap, in spite of having workable and innovative business ideas. Especially in a city high on the livable index like Calicut, land and property are at a premium. In such a situation, the ideal solution is shared office space in Calicut.
Advantages of Shared Office Spaces
A shared office space offers small businesses and startups the opportunity to lease or rent small spaces, cubicles, or private cabins within a larger, shared space, which is often a co-working space. This allows the entrepreneurs to bring down their investment and operational costs significantly.
