Edtech platform for healthcare professionals, Virohan has secured an undisclosed sum of grants from the Wadhwani Foundation and ACT Grants.

Founded in 2018 by Kunaal Dudeja, Nalin Saluja and Archit Jayaswal, Gurugram-based health education startup Virohan is aimed at training allied healthcare practitioners such as OT technicians, medical lab technicians, and X-ray technicians, among others.

“Virohan’s vision is to educate over one million students by 2025, through its best-in-class, blended learning platform,” CEO and co-founder Kunaal Dudeja was quoted as saying by YourStory.

“The grant from Wadhwani is an important step in fulfilling that vision.”

With the freshly raised capital, the firm plans to achieve its vision to educate over one million people.

Amid the global pandemic, Virohan had registered almost 2,000 students. Notably, over 50 per cent of Virohan’s student enrollments are female.

Virohan’s gamified, blended learning pedagogy and rich industry demand-driven content have driven superior student outcomes. As per the company, the dropout rate stands at 6 per cent compared to the industry average of 35-40 per cent.

Further, its placement rate currently stands at 84 per cent compared to the industry average of 30-40 per cent. All of Virohan’s courses focus on development of core technical skills, language abilities, and life skills for the students.

The startup also provides lengthy internships at hospitals for hands-on practice of the skills acquired.
