What is Bandhu?

Bandhu is an entrepreneurial venture connecting blue-collar workers and potential migrants with jobs and housing. Having emerged from the robust entrepreneurial ecosystem of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Bandhu is currently in its early stage of market adoption.

Our work lies at the intersection of sociology, urban planning/policy, data science, real estate finance & economics and has a strong foundation based on intensive fieldwork/on-ground execution.

Whom would you be working with?

You will work alongside a team of recent graduates from MIT (Cambridge, MA) with experience and expertise in urban planning & policy, real estate, public infrastructure and data science. We are geeky about everything ‘urban’ and ‘data’, with a sustained passion for improving rural and urban livelihoods.

Continuing our work from MIT, using rigorous on-field research and data science, we are transferring our knowledge into an entrepreneurial solution.

You will be an essential part of the app design process, using the insights gained from our field team to bring the next stage of our mobile application to life.
