हमारे बारे में
India’s first certified Bcorp, eKutir started in 2009 with a vision to provide equal opportunities and sustainable development to people at the “bottom of the pyramid.” It has created a first of its kind, integrated, data-driven platform to empower poor smallholders and create new jobs in rural communities.
Ever since its inception, its goal has been to extend novel, technology-driven opportunities to people at the “bottom of the pyramid,” and to enable impoverished communities to develop sustainably. It has not only created a first of its kind smart farming platform for smallholders, but has developed operational models which enabled the technology to benefit even secluded communities and illiterate farmers.
eKutir has also started numerous initiatives which strengthen rural-urban linkages, and yielded improved nutrition and health outcomes in both villages and cities. Wherever eKutir’s models have been adapted, the participation of women in the formal economy has increased substantially. eKutir’s combination of social and technological innovation has proven to be both sustainable and replicable in a wide variety of local contexts, and has earned support from Grand Challenges India, MIT, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Facebook and Internet.org.
