Our Story

A 1000-People journey begins with a single step. DesiCrew’s journey began with the pursuit of a young Saloni Malhotra, dreaming to create a Business model that will connect the three dots: Technology, Business and Social Impact.

We focus on both economic and social impact, building prosperity hubs in rural communities. DesiCrew’s model of creating employment is poverty eradication and celebrates Gender Equality and Women Empowerment – 65%+ women leading the way for us.

What started off in 2005 as a Project at the IIT-Madras, took the form of a Private Limited company registered in 2007. Today, it has grown to a 1000-people strong entity offering AI and ML solutions and working on cutting edge technology platforms. The journey since 2007 has not altered the DNA of the company. With over a dozen awards, Global Investments, alignment to the UNSDGS DesiCrew’s business continues its Impact story.

DesiCrew Centers

DesiCrew is headquartered at the IIT-Madras Research Park, Chennai. But our action happens out of our Operations centers located across tier-ii and tier-iii towns and villages across India. Our functional centers are compliant to Data security norms, working 24/7. We ensure delivery anywhere by plugging in the trained and certified workforce, but in a controlled SLA-driven delivery environment.

We have our centers coming up in Indonesia and Kenya soon. With the impact of COVID-19, DesiCrew has switched to WFH mode with seamless customer delivery.
