Virohan, a healthcare edtech startup, has secured $1.3 million in a bridge round from existing investors including Keiretsu Forum, Priya Shah, Better Capital, Vikas Gambhir, and Joydeep Battacharya. According to Virohan, the funds will be used to grow into new regions across India, develop newer training programs, content in vernacular languages, and advance their technical capabilities.
The latest funds increase Virohan’s total funding to $4.3 million since its inception, including a series A round announced in May 2021 with participation from Rebright Partners. In addition, the company is in negotiations to seek $7-$10 million in Series B funding later this year.
Founded in 2018 by Archit Jayasal, Kunaal Dudeja, Nalin Saluja, and Parul Dudeja, Virohan provides students with healthcare vocational training in order for them to pursue a career in the healthcare field.
Virohan currently offers hybrid classrooms on campuses and online training in places such as Delhi, Faridabad, Pune, Raipur, Meerut, and Nagpur. It claims that its end-to-end patented ‘technology skill stack’ enables employment prediction, aggregates training providers, and standardises procedures across the student journey, from mobilisation through training content to placements.
