"We are trying to bridge the digital gap between technology and the masses in developing countries. But does it pay? It does, though the returns come later. Our deliverables have thus far been value-added services for mobile phones, such as games (with a social concern), health applications (AIDS awareness and colour blindness check)."

We began HEXOLABS with the dream of creating groundbreaking products and services which would change the way people think, live, and work!
The brainchild of accomplished and dynamic IITians, the company was founded in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India under the incubation program offered by SIDBI Incubation and Innovation Centre, IIT Kanpur. Evolving with time, Hexolabs now holds collaborative offices and idea spaces with several strategic industrial and academic bodies.

The major emphasis of our processes is on problem identification and comprehending the full spectrum of client and customer needs. We aim at envisioning and developing novel products and services through designs that integrate efficiency, superior technology, and business viability with social responsibility in the delivery of sustainable solutions.

At Hexolabs, we work for a cause and strongly believe in what we do in order to achieve our goals.

Our commitment is to our clients – to serve them with the most inimitable solutions with the help of a cutting-edge technology.
Our commitment is to know-how – to visualize the most unique experiences and transmute them into exclusive products.
Our commitment is to the consumer – to create meaningful user-product interactions. Our commitment is to the society – to bring reformation through design.
The philosophy of conception, conviction, and creation sworn by a multidisciplinary team of passionate individuals makes us strong and enables us to do whatever it takes to be “The Best”.
