The iMerit Vision
We provide the human element in data innovation while empowering underprivileged communities to join the digital economy.
iMerit started in 2012 with a vision of bringing a diverse talent pool from underprivileged backgrounds into the digital workforce. Our training partnership with the Anudip Foundation, a nonprofit skills organisation, has unlocked a large pool of youngsters and women and provided them with meaningful careers at the cutting edge of the data economy.
Today over 1,300 iMeriters in India and the United States work with the world’s most innovative companies to unlock the value hidden within unstructured data at scale. Our customers are able to focus on the algorithms that drive their company forward while our team of trained specialists handles the data work. With an employee attrition rate of less than 5% and output accuracy higher than 95%, iMerit is a reliable partner in delivering cost-effective, quality projects on time and on budget. Over 50% of our employees are women and over 80% come from underprivileged backgrounds.
As technology professionals and valued members of the global digital economy, they’re an inspiration not only to their family and communities, but to all of us at iMerit as well. iMerit’s vision is backed by leading impact investors Omidyar Network, MSDF and Khosla Impact.
