New Delhi-based career tech startup Perspectico has raised an undisclosed amount of funding in a seed round from SSCBS Innovation & Incubation Foundation. The startup will use the freshly raised capital to expand its services to Kolkata, Mumbai and Bengaluru along with some other tier 2 and tier 3 cities.
Commenting on this initiative, Nikhil Chainani, CEO of Perspectico, said, “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.”
The founder has taken a significant risk by quitting their corporate jobs and launching the startup. However, they are on the right track of making the firm successful.
Briefing about the investment, Naresh Priyadarshi, CEO of SIIF, says “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.”
Founded by Nikhil Chainani, a former investment banker, the startup provides an education management platform for students to navigate their way towards their dream careers. It offers various courses designed by professionals, podcasts featuring experts, and also conducts various offline sessions to provide students with insights on different careers, interview processes and examination guidelines.
