Episode 18: Dreami.io approaches mentorship by democratizing career guidance

Featured in Business Insider, Thrive Global, 500 Startups and recently selected for Cox Enterprises Social Impact Accelerator powered by Techstars, California-based Dreami.io is well on its way to fulfilling its mission of democratizing career guidance. “Mentorship is a powerful tool to attract, develop, and retain,” says its founder and first-time entrepreneur Ashima Sharma.
