About

Our ambition is to be the voice of the users in this journey of
building products and services.

At Hureo, we aim to help the people who build and provide products and services understand the challenges users face, in order to deliver better experiences.

Our team comprises people from various backgrounds, including Human-Centered Interaction (HCI), Cognitive Sciences, Liberal Arts, and Sciences, enabling us to understand and empathize with people’s behaviours and needs. We take pride in our capability to gather deep insights and experiences by connecting with empathy.

Our team is based in Delhi and Pune, but we conduct studies across India. In the past, our studies have extended across:

North South East West

Punjab

Haryana

Karnataka

Telangana

Tamil Nadu

Orissa Maharashtra
Gujarat

Our multilingual team is fluent in various Indian languages, including

English, Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, and Tamil.

A good product is something designed after carefully understanding and empathising with people’s needs, behaviours, and their environment.

Where do we come from ?

Human-Centered Interaction (HCI)

HCI aims to make technology accessible, easy to use, and efficient for users.

Cognitive Science

Cognitive science enables the team to study processes, human intelligence and behavior.

Advertising & Media

Advertising and media helps in understanding of a user’s emotions, needs, and wants to enable a brand to understand its audience.

Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts teaches the value of empathy, critical thinking, and diversity that makes for skillful researchers.

Computer Science

A computer science background helps to understand the technology behind a product.

Sciences

A strong culture of scientific methods, innovation, and research is a result of having a background in research in the core sciences.

Education

Being educators makes it easy for us to design workshops, training programs as well as easily integrate new techniques into our work process.

Community Building

This very people-centric approach enables our team to quickly reach out and connect to new people and communities.
