“Expansion of our team size by more than 2.5x reflects our growth trajectory. We have stalwarts from the industry joining our leadership team across various functions. The aim is to have 50,000 active gig workers by the end of this year, pacing towards the medium-term goal of having a million-plus active gig workers by 2025,” said Chirag Mittal, Co-Founder & CEO Gigforce.

The platform claims it deploys about 80% of its total active gig workers in the logistics sector, serving clients such as Delhivery, Blinkit, Zepto, Gati, DTDC, Grab, Ecom Express, Park+, and Shadowfax, among others.

“We’re thrilled to join Gigforce in their mission to democratise access to good jobs. The gig economy will solve for India’s burgeoning unemployment crisis in a way that caters to the aspirations and overall wellbeing of gigers. Leveraging technology to build a strong ecosystem will ensure the benefits are equitably distributed and at scale.” said Mridu Jhangiani from Meraki Labs.
