TapChief - Get connected to professionals.

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, went to Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Inc., for an advice, when Facebook had hit a tough patch and a lot of people wanted to buy it
There are times when we wish to seek advise from someone who has the experience and  has sailed in the same boat as ours. During school days, we had our teachers, to guide us towards the right path. We could seek an advice and get a direction.
On graduating, we enter a world with a sea of tough choices to make and dearth of reliable and credible people to help us make them.

TapChief brings to you this wonderful platform to seek advice from an expert with a particular skill set or with experience in a specific domain.

With this, you are just a phone call away from the industry professionals.

About TapChief:

Started in Feburary 2016 by a bunch of BITsians, TapChief is a platform to discover and schedule calls with professionals belonging to various industries for students, budding entrepreneurs and others who wish to seek advise can connect to these experts for bite sized consultation over a simple phone call.

How it works:

In order to connect with a TapChief expert, you need to request a call to them, by suggesting three time slots and giving a detailed discussion about what you want to discuss over the call.
Once a call request is placed and the expert accepts it, an automated call is initiated between the two parties at the designated time. A TapChief call can last for a maximum of fifteen minutes. The automated calling service ensures that neither party's number is revealed.

How did this idea come up?

Tapchief, being their second start up, was started to resolve the problem of getting the right advise from the right person which they faced while building their first start up 'Edvice'.

"We felt at various points, if we could get the advice which we needed, we could have done much better. We saw our peers, who wanted to pursue higher studies or jobs at good places. All of them collectively had this problem of looking for the right person to talk to. There was a lot of struggle." says Shashank.

Once they had sold their first start up in June 2015, they started working on the concept of TapChief, which was launched in February 2016.

Future Plans:

On asking Shashank about TapChief's plans ahead, he said "There are many interesting things coming up. We want to build a great product and make it the most beneficial for students and budding entrepreneurs." 

For building an amazing platform and connecting the budding entrepreneurs and students to the industry professionals, it is a WOW! to Tapchief.
