Our mission at Khethworks is to give small-plot farmers across the world an unprecedented level of control over their lives and livelihoods through affordable and high quality technology. We are driven by impact--we succeed only if farmers grow more, earn more, and provide more for their families and communities.

Khethworks started at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, but we are proud to be a venture-backed startup recognized by Startup India that makes in India. With the support of the MIT Tata Center and the Tata Trusts, we developed our flagship technology at MIT, and we have been headquartered in Pune, India since January 2016. 

As a for-profit social enterprise, Khethworks commits to reinvest most of our profits to further our social mission.
