AS Campus recruitment emerges as a sure-fire way to recruit freshers from top-notch institutions, HR start-up Reculta Solutions is aiming to help institutions and companies come together to conduct hassle-free hiring processes with the aid of analytics and visualisation tools.

The Noida-based firm is currently building a campus hiring marketplace with an aim to simplify the placement/hiring processes for its principal stakeholders, namely, students, corporates, and colleges. The core team includes Kajal Malik, Vidyarthi Baddireddy, Rajnish Kohli, Utsav Bhattacharjee, and Sanjeev Malladi, who are alumni of FMS Delhi and IIM Ahmedabad. Founded in January 2017, the focus of this HR start-up is primarily the ‘on-campus’ recruitment space and it is working with institutions and companies to help them make better recruitment decisions, says Vidyarthi Baddireddy, co-founder and CEO, Reculta.

Currently, Reculta offers a yearly subscription-based service and charges clients on the basis of its feature sets and volume.

Recently, this start-up that digitises campus placements using cloud technology and data analytics, raised seed funding from CIIE Initiatives, the technology business incubator of IIM Ahmedabad.
