Setu' means 'bridge' in 'Sanskrit' and our aim is to leverage the power of collaborations to bring about CHANGE at SCALE. SetuWorks collaborates with corporates and civil society organizations to develop strategies and tools to address and overcome challenges in the social development ecosystem. We understand the process of development, the process of communication and their combined power to bring about change when these processes interact.

Our core verticals are - Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Consulting and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Consulting and Strategic Communications. 

We focus on developing and delivering effective and strategic interventions which have a high corporate social value. We provide end-to-end solutions in the CSR & DEI space, be it Need assessment, Market Research, Partner Identification and Selection, Program Design, and Tools and Metrics to track efficacy of interventions.
