More often than not we find ourselves stuck in one confusion or another. Be it education or career we always look out for that someone, who can clear our doubts and guide us through. What if all these reliable guiding lights are available at the same place? Yes, Guidic Solutions founded by three friends ( Nehal Khan, Ruhi Mansha, Aman Singh) after numerous discussions about education and career in India, is your destination!
Nehal is an alumni of XLRI, before Guidic, he was into Project Management with a gaming company in Hyderabad. Ruhi Mansha was working with Google before she was a part of Guidic. Aman Singh has worked at Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan Attorneys and at ICRA Limited in the past before being a part of Guidic. He is a Mechanical Engineer from IIT- Roorkee and has an MBA from IIM-Kozhikode. Founded in 2015, the startup is currently based out of Bengaluru.
GUIDIC stands for GUIDance In Confusion. The whole idea is to revolutionize the way guidance is sought in India when it comes to one’s education and career among other things. The most conventional mode that we take usually is to be dependent on our parents or relatives or friends to take decisions. When questions like what after 10th? Which stream to choose to choose after 12th? Which after graduation? strike us and we don’t know what to do, we reach out to friends and family and get even more confused. Another problem is people who know what they want to do but do not have the right people to guide them. So a lot of time and potential is wasted in the prime of our youth looking for what one wants to do and this is what Guidic is trying to solve – Help everybody take the right decisions, always!
Currently its just a team of 3 managing different roles, from operations to marketing to business development to customer support. They plan to expand soon in terms of team strength. Nehal tells Knowstartup:
“We are the 1st and only company to offer education and career guidance through senior working professionals from leading Tech and B schools of the country and from leading organisations of the world. So we are not just another set of career counselors but we provide guidance through working professionals. Most of our experts are from top schools of the country like IIT, BITS, IIM, XLRI, ISB, NID, NIFT, DU etc.”
The Guidic team makes sure that, despite being a difficult task to get all the mentors on board, they manage to get some of the smartest and industry leaders on a single platform. Ruhi adds:
“So if you want guidance in engineering or MBA or Fashion or Digital Marketing or even in fields like Gaming and Photography, we have experts who will guide you with information, options and the best way forward so you take an informed decision”
Although the startup started with career guidance, they quickly realized that they should be an end to end service provider for anything and everything related to career and education. So they started with resume writing and interview preparation by experts. The startup is also planning to introduce Career Assessments and eventually be known for Career Mapping as well. Apart from that the plan is to introduce value added services as well in the form of audio books, podcasts, tutorials and eventually help individuals with their project reports, sales presentations, analysis, soft skills training etc.
