Building an AI admission platform

Founded by IIT BHU graduates Dirghayu Kaushik, Vikrant Shivalik & Vaibhav Tyagi, Ambitio is building India's first AI admissions platform, to help applicants secure admissions in top global universities.


Ambitio AI Copilot enables applicants to identify ideal courses and craft stellar essays & SOPs.

Access to over 2 million students admits

The startup claims to have access to a database of over 2 million admits and is developing a low-touch approach to build a comprehensive global admissions platform.

“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. With the decentralization of information and emergence of LLMs, all this knowledge can now be intelligently used to give personalized admission advice," said Dirghayu Kaushik, Co-founder and CEO at Ambitio. 

Vikrant Shivalik, Co-founder and COO at Ambitio, said, "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" Prateek Agarwal, Investments Lead at First Cheque, said, "We believe Ambitio is well positioned to leverage Gen-AI capabilities. Their product-led approach presents a great opportunity to develop a global admissions product”.
