About Us

Founded in 2016, Expertois is a marketplace for on-demand consulting services.

The founders are a team of corporate professionals who have their entrepreneurial flame burning strong. Each of us have been a consultant in our careers and fully understand the practical inefficiencies of finding, hiring and working with consulting firms.

We launched Expertois with the aim of bringing together top business consultants who not only have consulting experience but also deep domain knowledge. We want to help companies work with these experts to improve profitability, manage risks and grow business - with minimum administrative overhead and ensuring full confidentiality.

We fundamentally want to disrupt how business consulting is done today. With the technology today, work is being redefined. You no longer need to be confined to a location, company or timezone. We want to empower professionals, who know how to deliver quality results, to be their own bosses and work on what they enjoy the most.

Our vision is to be the first choice for any company who is looking to hire business consultants as well as for experts who want to have a career in consulting.

History

It all started like it usually does - over drinks. Pushkar, Shamik and couple other friends were on a reunion vacation alongwith their families. While recounting the good times together and remembering how all of us have grown, it came down to passion in life. During the course of discussion, they struck upon the idea of Expertois, a marketplace which uses technology to bring consulting talent together and solve business problems. That's how they got their mission for rest of their lives. It took few months to chisel the idea, get outside perspective and give it a proper shape before launch.
