About i2i

Ideas to Impacts (i2i) is a purpose-driven, cutting-edge global technology solutions provider focused on delivering best-in-class value to its customers by leveraging distributed talent while transforming communities where we operate. i2i was founded in 2015 and is headquartered in Pune, India.

What We Do

At i2i, we deliver cutting-edge technology solutions to global customers. We focus on delivering superior value to customers by applying deep domain and tech knowledge, and taking ownership of outcomes.

Our Ideas

We are a hotbed of continuous idea generation and are constantly evolving to challenge paradigms, revisiting operating and business models with the purpose of benefitting the larger ecosystem; customers, talent, and community. Nothing, other than our values, is sacrosanct.

Our Innovative Operational Model

In our innovative operating model, seniors in metros focus on customer management, architecture, design, and mentoring, while teams in non-metro offices focus on engineering, development, and support. With this model, we deliver better quality, higher productivity, and lower costs to customers while improving the quality of life of talent and also transforming communities. We are happy to partner to convert this ‘Model’ into a ‘Movement’.

Tech-driven Centres of Excellence

We have identified emerging technology talent hubs across non-metro towns and cities in India and have setup our own tech-driven Centres of Excellence (CoEs) for our cutting-edge technology solution units.


As a purpose-driven organization, we actively promote entrepreneurship as a critical component of long-term growth and success. Hence, all our solution-focused practices are led by entrepreneurs.

changing fast

And Hence, We Are Deeply Entrenched Into The Teach Start-up Ecosystem

Partnership at Core

We believe in partnerships as the means to transition an idea into a movement

Partners To Achieve Our Purpose

Our Values

Distributing Future Evenly

Why are we doing this?

While our tag line is inspired by the quote ‘The future is already here but it is not evenly distributed’ by fiction writer William Gibson, the idea for ideas to impacts comes from our observation that bulk of the talent in the IT sector hails from non-metros but are in metros because the jobs are there.

We set out to alter this movement by taking jobs to where the talent is, in non-metro towns and cities. We deploy our Smart Town Model (STM) to ensure that customers see improvement in quality, productivity, time to market, while seeing cost reductions. Our talent enjoys a much better quality of life, and sustainability gets a fillip.
