Virohan was started with an idea to fix the failure in the traditional higher education system which is out of sync with industry demand. The ed tech startup is making the higher education system demand-driven and standardizing training outcomes at scale. India needs about 40 million AHPs by the end of this decade, and as of today, only 10 million are employed, of which barely 7-8% are trained and certified. To address this staggering gap in AHPs, Nalin Saluja, Kunaal Dudeja and Archit Jayaswal teamed up to establish Virohan in 2018.
Virohan, which currently operates blended learning classrooms at campuses and online training across India has a number of distinguishing features but most notable are likely its tech-first approach and talent to fix the socio-economic problem so that industry demand and skilled workforce are in perfect equilibrium. The start-up has a technology-driven training platform, which is able to train personnel, both online and in their allied campuses. Its end-to-end proprietary ‘technology skill stack’ enables job prediction, aggregate training providers and standardizes processes across the student journey from mobilization to training content to placements.
With campuses across Delhi, Haryana, Chattisgarh and Maharashtra and now Karnataka, Gujarat and Mumbai, Virohan has plans to expand to 160 campuses Pan – India by end of 2022. The company has been recognized for its work by the Google Accelerator and Amazon Accelerator and recently been awarded the India Achievers Forum Award 2020 among others. With a mission to give India a more skilled healthcare workforce, Virohan is focusing on educating as many students, practitioners & young professionals in every possible way. Not only this, Virohan is setting an example in the Healthcare Education Industry being the only players to offer Industry Demand Driven Online Training.
