“Our goal is to serve as intelligent digital advisors to students throughout their admissions journey. For years, this information was scattered all over the place and insights were confined to a handful of education counsellors,” said Dirghayu Kaushik, cofounder and CEO at Ambitio.

Ambitio AI Copilot enables applicants to identify ideal courses and craft essays and SOPs. With access to a database of over 2 million admits, they are developing a low-touch approach to build a comprehensive global admissions platform.

“Our unique AI+Mentor approach coupled with our in-house admission experts, ensures that our applicants get accepted into their dream schools by fostering strong profile building and crafting stellar applications,” said Vikrant Shivalik, Co-founder and COO at Ambitio.

Prateek Agarwal, Investments Lead at First Cheque, said Ambitio is well positioned to leverage Gen-AI capabilities.
