Digiyoda was founded in 2016 with the goal of making a positive impact in rural communities in India by leveraging the power of technology and data annotation. The company was founded by our Managing Director Rakesh Rao Kokkirala who recognized the need for high-quality data annotation services and saw an opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of people living in rural areas.
The founders of Digiyoda recognized that many rural communities in India had a large number of highly skilled individuals who lacked access to employment opportunities. They also saw a growing demand for data annotation services in industries such as technology, healthcare, and finance. With these observations in mind, they developed the concept of impact sourcing, which involves leveraging the skills and talents of individuals in underdeveloped regions to provide data annotation services to companies around the world.
The founders of Digiyoda then set to work developing the infrastructure and systems needed to support their impact sourcing model. They invested in training and development programs for their employees, and worked to build partnerships with companies in need of data annotation services.
Today, Digiyoda is a thriving company that is making a positive impact in the lives of people in rural India. The company’s innovative approach to impact sourcing has helped to bridge the digital divide, promote digital literacy initiatives, and provide employment opportunities to individuals in underserved communities. Through its commitment to quality and accuracy, Digiyoda is helping to drive innovation and progress in the field of data annotation, and its impact sourcing model is a shining example of how businesses can play a role in creating a more equitable and just world.
Digiyoda has made significant contributions to the development of rural communities in India. One of the ways the company has achieved this is by creating Rural IT Hubs in tier 2 and tier 3 towns. These hubs provide the infrastructure required to handle projects at scale, and they serve as a catalyst for economic growth and development in rural areas.
In addition to creating Rural IT Hubs, Digiyoda has also invested in the development of its employees. The company currently has around 300 employees and has trained over 14,000 people in data annotation through its free training programs. These programs provide individuals in rural communities with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the digital economy, and they help to promote digital literacy and bridge the digital divide.
The combination of Rural IT Hubs and a highly skilled workforce has enabled Digiyoda to handle complex data annotation projects at scale, and the company’s impact sourcing model has been instrumental in creating positive change in rural communities in India. Through its commitment to quality, accuracy, and social impact, Digiyoda is helping to drive innovation and progress in the field of data annotation and making a positive difference in the lives of people in rural communities.
