The idea

While talking to TimesNext, Bikash told us that the idea was to create a world of trust for professionals.

Bikash observed that the professionals doubted finding the right job that they aspire for, accepting the application by the employer, the salary cap that fits them, considering the success in the marketplace, etc. and also doubts that employer had to find the right talent, the uncertainty of the candidate accepting the offer, etc.

Bikash realized that this doubt leads to a continuous feeling of anxiety about success or failure because of low trust. Bikash got the inspiration for creating something that could solve the issues of discovering trust, which led to their unique proposition- CREDIBILITY, the secret sauce to foster trust & eliminate all the anxiety.

Challenges at the outset

Bikash told us that the start was difficult and fuzzy, but within the initial few months of product development, they got the clear sight of success ahead. The strong support from his team who believed in his vision and friends who supported him and his positive attitude helped him overcome all challenges in the journey.
