Founders Prukalpa and Varun realised how “big data” was exploding in the e-commerce and finance sectors- but was rarely used to solve problems that really mattered- health, education and infrastructure.

SocialCops collects data using mobile devices, aggregates secondary data and finally analyses and visualises this data. They get data from secondary sources in the form of PDF files, excel sheets and obscure govt. websites. Expect info on demographics, education, healthcare, geo locations et al.

Their basic aim is to drive decision makers to their platform: Be it businesspersons, government officials or individuals who want to find the best school for their children in a specific area.
