February 25, 2021: India’s innovative, technology-based training aggregator for Healthcare professionals, Virohan, announced that it has received a grant from Wadhwani Foundation and ACT Grants. Virohan and Wadhwani Foundation have a long-standing partnership for training and equipping students to enable a sustainable livelihood.
Amidst the global pandemic, Virohan, is slated to register almost a doubling of students enrolled from ~1,100 students a year to ~2,000 students a year till date. Over 50% of Virohan’s student enrollments are female.
Ratna Mehta, EVP, Wadhwani Catalyst Fund states, “Currently there is a significant demand supply gap of healthcare workers and the need is expected to grow exponentially over the next decade. We are proud and excited to support Virohan in its endeavor to improve the healthcare ecosystem. It is a new age healthcare education company which has built an advanced tech stack and an asset light model to improve outcomes.”
Kunaal Dudeja, CEO & Co-founder states, “Virohan’s vision is to educate over 1 million students by 2025, through its best-in-class, blended learning platform. The grant from Wadhwani is an important step in fulfilling that vision.”
Virohan was incorporated in 2018 by Kunaal Dudeja (Co-founder & CEO), Nalin Saluja (Co-founder & CTO) and Archit Jayaswal (Co-Founder & CFO). Virohan bridges the gap between industry demand and the skills of the workforce by using its end-to-end proprietary ‘technology skill stack’ to enable job prediction, aggregate training providers and standardize processes across the student journey from mobilization to training content to placements.
All of Virohan’s courses emphasize on development of core technical skills, language abilities, and life skills for the student. All programs include lengthy internships at hospitals for hands-on practice of the skills acquired.
