Founder & CEO
Ayush, at the age of 17, encountered the challenge for a student to choose a right career while guiding a domestic helper to get back to education. Later at the age of 22, he chose to quit his lucrative job in Investment Banking to solve this problem and founded iDreamCareer. He has spent the past 11 years in the space of career guidance and as a full-time entrepreneur for the last 8 years. His most pathbreaking accomplishment as the founder of iDreamCareer has been to scale up personalized career counseling while maintaining quality across counselors. This was achieved by creating a standardized process, product and content using technology as an enabler. He has successfully led iDreamCareer to become the largest career counseling social enterprise in India empowering close to 2.5 million students annually. With his vision to create a sustainable enterprise that can impact millions of students, he led iDreamCareer to become a profitable social enterprise since FY 2018. Under its leadership iDC has raised 4 rounds of funding to date, the latest one being from US-based Impact VC Gray Matters Capital. Ayush is now working towards scaling up iDreamCareer's annual reach from 2.5 million students (currently) to 10 million students by the year 2022.
