Technolodge lends helping hands to small startups – Times of India

Kochi: To help small startups strugglingto survive, Technolodge Piravom, the first rural IT park of state, has launched an initiative titled ‘Move to Technolodge’.
Under the initiative, small startups which were functioning from private buildings, which are now closed either due to Covid or due to fall in business, could apply for spaces in Technolodges in Piravom, Kottayam, Pathanamthitta and Technocity Kalamassery.
“Our aim is to lend a helping hand to startups facing crisis. We will provide high internet connectivity, uninterrupted power supply and furnished cabins,” said Baiju Nedumkeriyil, MD and co-developer of Technolodge Piravom.
He said that many startups in Kerala have collapsed during the pandemic after they failed to meet the expenses of building rent, electricity, internet and security cleaning charges.
“We hope that when they work in a startup ecosystem, it will give them an opportunity to share jobs and technology,” he said.
As of now, there are 72 startups operating in Technolodges and Technocity Kalamassery. Startups proposing to join the initiative have options for cabins of various sizes with basic facilities for mininum four employees.
“The advantage is the built-in infrastructure and low rentals when compared to general rates,” said Nedumkeriyil.
The operation and maintenance of systems such as internet, electricity, generator and UPS are done directly from the park. Currently, there are 12 cabins each in Piravom and Kottayam and seven cabins each in Pathanamthitta and Kalamassery.
