ReNew IT is an initiative of Sriram Eco Raksha Computer Services Pvt Ltd, founded in 2009 by an alumnus of IIM Calcutta. The primary goal of their company is to increase the number of high-quality, low-cost PCs and related parts and accessories available to students, NGOs, small businesses and other users. The organisation mainly sources computers from large companies, refurbishes them (ensures that all parts are in working condition, any old data is removed, the computers are rigorously tested) and remarkets them. They have sold over 10,000 computers over the last 5 years to people from all walks of life – NGOs, students, radio jockeys, offices, doctors, auto drivers, rickshaw pullers etc.
