Social Cops is a fast growing start-up that builds technology which connects human beings, communities and data to solve some of the world's biggest problems in health, education and civic issues.
Our world today lacks social data on basic essentials like sanitation, crime rates, road infrastructures etc. Google Maps tells you how to get from point A to point B, but don’t you wish there was some way you can find out the safest route to do so? At Social Cops, we empower citizens to use technology via their mobile phones- turning them into human sensors so that we can create the much required social data layer on top of all the maps in the world.
We work with a variety of community stakeholders ranging from public agencies, corporates, NGOs, local volunteer groups to resident welfare associations to gather data and the different uses we have found for the crowd sourced data, has won us the recognition of United Nations, Microsoft, IBM – not to mention the IITs and IIMs.
