We envision a world where it is as easy to manage across the last mile as it is across the first.
TaroWorks LLC is a social enterprise that sells an advanced mobile data platform to help organizations enhance data collection, monitoring, sales and inventory management in the field. Our mission is to improve product and service delivery to the poor by bringing real-time data to any organization, anywhere.
Launched by the Grameen Foundation in 2013, TaroWorks has now reached more than 90 social enterprises and nonprofit organizations across 30+ countries, supporting over 200,000 micro-entrepreneurs and improving the lives of over 3 million of the world’s poor.
TaroWorks LLC is now a wholly-owned company of Grameen Foundation, a non-profit which helps alleviate poverty using mobile technology to give the poor access to financial services and information on agriculture and health. TaroWorks is a nimble software as a service (SaaS) company with access to Grameen Foundation’s expertise.
Nonprofits and social enterprises need real-time data to make forward-thinking business and strategic decisions rather than just react to outdated reports of conditions on the ground. We want these organizations to use fresh data and timely feedback as the standard for setting and reaching their goals.
We don’t accept the premise that development organizations working in remote areas should settle for inferior technology. Social enterprises, NGOs and foundations should be able to employ the same powerful technology and tools that drive the private sector to accomplish more in their mission.
TaroWorks began in 2013 as a startup within the Grameen Foundation until launching as a separate Grameen company in 2015. We’re a tech software firm guided by our deep roots in social entrepreneurship. We have first-hand experience with the data and operational challenges development organizations and fledgling businesses face.
