ABOUT US

We are a bunch of curious, hard-core engineers who work on developing the developing world.

We measure our success by the amount of positive global impact we achieve. We believe there are plenty of fundamental problems that technology can solve in the developing world. We started off in 2013, by building the world's first 1-hour grocery delivery service in the world's most densely populated city, where it used to be an incredible chore to get daily necessities. Since then, we've gone on to redefine supply chains, ease commodity trading, support refugee camps and reduce food wastage.

We are one of the first tech start-ups focused on building up the developing world using a for-profit model, that attracts investors and develops local economies.

Just because we try to do good doesn't mean we don't have fun. We love being at the bleeding-edge of technology. We believe software development itself can be better, and we regularly experiment with home-grown frameworks, algorithms, thought processes, programming languages and DSLs. We run our own cloud in local data centers and work directly with country-wide information infrastructure providers.

We are backed by The World Bank Group and Y Combinator. Since 2013, we have partnered with The UN World Food Programme, Bangladesh Government, UNDP, USAID and The UK Department for International Development.

We have offices in San Francisco, Singapore, Osaka, Dhaka, Cox's Bazar and Jessore.

OUR WORK

ONLINE GROCERY
E-Commerce Platform

The world's first 1-hour and 15-minute grocery delivery service, serving quarter million households in the world's most densely populated city, Chaldal.com thrives in chaos. We strive to offer the best prices and maintain the highest standards of quality, a monumental task that is a work-in-progress.

VEGETABLE NETWORK
Supply Chain Platform

The Vegetable Network connects small rural farmers with small urban retailers by reimagining a supply chain driven by technology. Our aim is to protect farmers from volatile markets, improve the working conditions of retailers and minimize wastage.

AT-RISK COMMUNITIES
Social Impact Platform

We work with The World Food Programme to feed the world's largest refugee camp. This involves extending efficient supply chains to previously-uninhabited areas, providing thousands of tons of food and developing better nutrition in highly impoverished communities.

MICRO-WAREHOUSING
Fulfillment Platform

We pioneered the concept of micro-warehouses to serve the daily needs of a quarter million families within an hour in the world's most densely populated city. These micro-warehouses use advanced algorithms to predict stock and automatically balance inventory between themselves.

GoGo Bangla
Logistics Platform

GoGo Bangla is a e-commerce delivery service that leverages Chaldal's vast logistics network to support the operations of a dozen large e-commerce stores and hundreds of online merchants. We support deliveries, pick-ups, exchanges and other ad-hoc activities.

Protocol
Messaging Platform

Protocol is an enterprise messaging platform that coordinates the activities of our growing employee base where solutions such as Slack, email and ticketing systems have proven to be highly ineffective, either due to their complexity or pricing.

Chalao
Ridesharing Platform

Chalao is designed as a ethical ride-sharing platform to augment our logistics network, where drivers are compensated for the time spent on the platform, with the possibility of full-time employment with benefits.

Cookups
Thoughtful Dining Platform

Cookups delivers home-cooked, made-to-order food from the finest cooks in the city. 95 % of our cooks are female who had never earned before joining Cookups. We bring you food that reminds you of your grandma's recipes or lets you taste what Masterchef shows on television.

Data Centers
Meta Platform

We run our own servers in local data centers connected over high-speed leased lines, and expose a cloud interface to our engineers and partners. We believe in data locality and find public clouds just too darn expensive to serve the developing world.
