How often do you see in India that teenagers get into entrepreneurship? Very few! That’s right, entrepreneurship in India is not so common among teenagers. While most of the teenagers who spend their time partying and enjoying their college life very few work hard to achieve their dreams. This is a similar story of 2 college friends who sold their phones & started a venture with Rs.3,000/- and made Rs.30lakhs in 6 months in a Tier 2 city in India, helping small enterprises grow their business using digital solutions.
Opening a startup that provides digital services to clients in Belgaum, a Tier II city in India, wasn’t a cakewalk for Sarvesh Kakkeri and his business partner Shivani Jadhav. The duo had a tough initial period getting clients on board. Cubiccode Digital Media LLP is a web+app development and a digital media startup which has served over 200+ clients across India and Abroad. Currently, Cubiccode serves in 14 different cities in India.
Cubiccode provides numerous digital solutions for clients of all sizes across different sectors, ranging from small businesses to global corporations.

Due to such an impressive wide portfolio, Cubiccode got recognized in Top 10 web development start-ups of the year 2019 by Silicon India. Cubiccode was also awarded the title of Most Outstanding Web Development Company 2019 – Karnataka at AI Global Excellence Awards 2019.
Beginning from the Tier- 2 city like Belgaum, it was never an easy task to start-up, we have seen a lot of businesses struggling to sustain in the market, we have seen businesses shutting down, even today we can count IT/ digital media companies in Belgaum on our fingertips that are the condition of IT/ digital media companies in Belgaum. Due to this unstable behavior or negative environment of companies, the ones who suffer are the clients and employees of the firm. Other challenges we faced were the businesses in Belgaum were not interested to move towards the digital platforms, they were happy with their traditional practices, it used to take a lot of effort to convince them to give us a chance to prove ourselves right.
The major difficulties we face is the acquisition of the right talent for the company. Hiring is a big challenge for start-ups in Tier2 cities. You will be able to find people to work for you, but finding good talent is a difficult part. The reason is no one wants to work in Tier2 cities, everyone wants to move outside and work in metro cities as there are not many growth opportunities for long term basis in tier2 cities.
These days, every small enterprise wants websites, apps and want to promote themselves on digital platforms. Companies like Cubiccode, plan, strategize and execute such projects for a very affordable cost. Miss. Shivani Jadhav, Business Development Head of Cubiccode says: “These small businesses are the true employers in India as these businesses employee close to 90% of India’s workforce.”
