The transition from the laid back campus life to the responsible professional life can come across as a cruel blow to students. You can no longer ‘bunk’, catch that matinee show or laze around in your favorite coffee shop for hours. By stepping into the professional world, you are suddenly put on a fast lane wherein everything demands your punctuality, commitment and dedication. It is a rude awakening and we do not blame you if you are suddenly feeling overwhelmed.
Well to make this very transition easy for students there is a new startup in town called Pixentia Solutions. It is here to help and mentor students so that they can fit into the professional world with ease. That’s not all; it also helps businesses connect with academic institutions in order to scout for amazing fresh talents.

We wanted to design a software that would evaluate student behavior and also track their performance in order to groom them towards succeeding in their academic and carrier goals”, says Sasidhar.
On Hurdles Faced & Competitors!
Like most startups, the startup was faced with challenges like inadequate finances and getting quality resources. Further, in terms of competition, Blackboard, Moodle and Fedena do pose as potential competitors. This is because these are already established businesses having more revenue to spend on research, marketing and hiring valuable resources.
