Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world. Unreasonable people attempt to adapt the world to themselves. All progress, therefore, depends on unreasonable people.
- George Bernard Shaw
Kheyti is for you if you want to solve the seemingly unsolvabe problems of the world…
There are close to 100 million families in India that depend on agriculture for livelihood. For 2/3rds of those families, their expenses are greater than their income. This is not a new reality - it’s been the case for decades. This reality is getting worse every year due to climate change.
Kheyti exists because we hate that reality and believe we can completely change it in our lifetime. Kheyti exists because we believe we have the audacity to imagine a world where a smallholder farmer in India owning 2 acres of land has access to the same technology and service quality as a large farmer in the US owning 8,000 acres of land.
This audacity made us design the first-of-its-kind Kheyti Greenhouse-in-a-Box (read more on our home page). While our solution has many unique design elements to it (low-cost, end-to-end, tech-enabled), what excites us the most is that we can deliver up to ₹100,000/year to a farmer and triple their incomes! If delivering impact deeper than anyone else to millions of farmers excites you, Kheyti is the place for you.

at a fast growing startup...
Last year, we grew 2x in farmers, team, and revenues and are on track to double that growth in 2021. We will be scaling to 3,000, 25,000 and 50,000 farmers in 1, 3 and 5 years respectively. In 5 years, we will be a 1,000-member team serving 50,000 farmers and generating millions of dollars of farmer impact. We are still at the beginning of this rapid growth plan - the opportunity to learn and grow is immense!
that is globally recognised and supported...
We believe the whole world can come together to solve this massive problem. Apart from our amazing board members, advisors and funders in India, Kheyti is supported by funders from the US, UK and Eupope and was incubated early on in New York, Chicago and Jerusalem. As a member of our team, you will have the opportunity to tap into these incredible networks and resources.
lives its values deeply...
There are 4 values that are core to Kheyti. They are part of our DNA and guide both what we do and how we do it.
Farmers are Kheyti’s reason for being. Delivering deep and lasting impact to farmers with small holdings is our north star. We measure our impact and use metrics as a guide for decisions. We listen to the farmer, always. Our farmers have helped us make tremendous breakthroughs. We want to be the most farmer-centric company there can be.
We above I
At Kheyti, we believe that great goals cannot be achieved alone. True change in agriculture requires a whole host of players to work together. Over the past 5 years we’ve brought together more than 100 organisations to work with us. We value collaboration internally as well. We hire collaborators. We reward team success over individual heroism. We care for team members' wellness and growth at work and beyond.
We believe that we fail if we do not constantly learn and grow. Team members are excited by growth and open to experimenting, learning from that experience and course correcting. We believe in institutionalizing knowledge and building a culture of deliberate and continuous learning. We do bi-annual appraisals so that strong contributors get a chance to be promoted and grow at a much faster frequency.
Flexibility & Accountability
We do not rely on hierarchy, but rather give our high performing team discretion in doing their work. You must have a built-in accountability towards your work and a willingness to hold your peers, superiors, and subordinates equally accountable to theirs. We believe people should make decisions that are in the best interest of our mission. We celebrate failure as long as we own up to it and learn from it.
