New Delhi, November, 2018: Perspectico, a Delhi-based career-tech platform, raises an undisclosed amount of second round seed funding from SSCBS Innovation & Incubation Foundation (SIIF). It helps students prepare for job interviews with industry experts, through online and offline intervention.
This investment by a repeat investor is a testament to the 125% monthly revenue growth. Perspectico has a strong team that has impacted 1500+ students in understanding their career interest and pursuing their respective careers across Delhi University.
SIIF is a company promoted by and is an outcome of Incubation Policy from Government of NCT, Delhi. Perspectico is a venture launched by Nikhil Chainani, 23 an alumnus of SSCBS, the host institute for SSCBS Innovation and Incubation Foundation (SIIF).
Incorporated in November 2017, the company is a brainchild of its CEO and founder, Nikhil Chainani, who is the organizational backbone. He single-handedly steers the ship for the company’s functionality and strategy.
During his college years, Nikhil was always caught up with the struggle of evaluating career choices. When he tried talking to people from diverse backgrounds and mindsets, he realized that everyone gave him “biased” advice. He felt a huge gap with the industry and its requirements. That is when he met his co-founders, who are industry experts from finance, consulting and recruitment backgrounds. All four of them have led the company and are responsible for its success so far.
Commenting on this initiative, Nikhil Chainani, CEO of Perspectico, says, “We have learned a lot in the past 13 months of operations about students and their job placement difficulties. The initial SIIF investment catapulted us from an idea to a revenue-generating venture. The confidence shown towards us by SIIF will help us fine-tune our product offering.”
He further added that, with the perspicacious mentorship of Dr Poonam Verma, and Mr Naresh Priyadarshi in all aspects of our business, and the support of Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, I express profound gratitude to my college and the Government of Delhi for their confidence in Perspectico.
According to Dr Poonam Verma, Chairperson of SIIF and Principal of Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, “We are proud that our alumni are becoming successful entrepreneurs & job creators, setting examples for students graduating from the college in coming years. Nikhil continues to add laurels to SSCBS, as he did during his college years.”
Naresh Priyadarshi, CEO of SIIF, says “Nikhil and his co-founders have taken significant risks by leaving plum corporate jobs and launching Perspectico, and they are on right track of making Perspectico hugely successful. They have made a good blend of offerings keeping customers in mind, have hit the market early and are constantly evolving their products. SIIF is happy to see how well its first seed-funding into Perspectico was leveraged, and now the relationship has been cemented further by the second round of seed-fund.”
