Ayush Bansal, the Founder of iDreamCareer for a person is with great vision, determination, focus and humility. He is a new age entrepreneur, innovative and someone who leads by example. Ayush is a passionate leader and loved by his team of highly dedicated & talented individuals who love to work with new challenges and always wanting to push for bigger goals.
The need to help young people find the right fit career in an unbiased manner was something that Ayush encountered at the age of 17, when he guided a domestic helper to get back to education. He realized that there was so much confusion and misinformation about choosing careers. Leaving his lucrative career in investment banking at 22, he founded iDreamCareer. As he continued working with hundreds of students, he realized the need for having a standardized process, from product & content to uniformly equipped and trained counselors. Today, IDC (iDreamCareer) has trained nearly 700 counselors through classroom-based training, webinars and continuous knowledge inputs. The counseling community that has been built through IDC is truly remarkable and rewarding. If a counselor has a query, then expertise from other counselors is immediately shared so that a student has the best information he/she may need. Having like-minded people engaging together is a very unique feature that IDC has created.
