In August 2020, the startup had raised $2.8 million across seed and Series A round from Elea Foundation for Ethics in Globalisation, the Singh Family Trusts, advised by Artha Impact, Yunus Social Business, Better Capital, and Keiretsu Forum.
The official statement revealed that Virohan plans to utilize the funds to expand to more than 160 new campuses across India to boost the Indian healthcare system with its trained unified healthcare workforce which will assist tackle the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
The funding will also help the startup to grow its proprietary Blended Learning Technology platform, with VR-based practical training, the company said.
Virohan’s Blended Learning platform comprises on-demand online training via bite-sized videos and real-time quizzes and gamification. This allows its partner colleges and students to shift easily from in-classroom to online learning.
Founded in 2018 by Kunaal Dudeja, Nalin Saluja, and Archit Jayaswal, Virohan links the gap between industry demand and the skills of the workforce by employing its end-to-end proprietary ‘technology skill stack’ to facilitate job prediction, aggregate training providers, and systematize processes across the student journey from mobilization to training content to placements.
Commenting on the development, Kunaal Dudeja stated,
“Virohan has always envisioned becoming the industry leader through our mission to provide a demand-driven and up-to-date curriculum. With this funding, we plan to educate over 1 million students by 2025, through our best-in-class, Blended Learning platform.”
“This funding is not just going to help us expand operations but will also fuel the Vision and morale of those at Virohan to strive even harder towards our goal and successfully create an army of skilled paramedical workforce for the Indian healthcare system to fight against the ongoing pandemic,” he added.
Speaking about the latest investment, Brij Bhasin, General Partner, Rebright Partners added, “Rebright Partners is excited to partner with Virohan to address the critical gaps in trained Healthcare Para-Professionals in India. Virohan’s full-stack offering brings in key stakeholders and partners in the ecosystem together on a common platform to solve the challenges faced by students, trainers, hospitals, and healthcare innovators.”
During the global pandemic, Virohan claims to have trained more than 5,500 students and is expected to record nearly a doubling of students registered from 1,100 students a year to 2,000 students a year so far. Over 50 percent of Virohan’s student enrolments are female, the company says.
Virohan looks like an innovative platform providing healthcare education to students aspiring to build a career in this industry. Looking at how the healthcare system of our country is strained due to the second wave of the pandemic, I believe Virohan has amazing growth prospects. My best wishes to the team of Virohan.Shishir Gupta, Founder and CEO, StartupLanes
