As per the media report, the funding will also help the start-up to expand to Japanese markets with support from its existing investors' ALES, and Rebright Partners.
“This investment is a testament to our product-market fit, scalability, impact and profitability of the business model. In the next 18 months Virohan will deepen its relationship with its stakeholders (Students, Universities/Colleges & Medical institutions), train over 10,000 students, and establish an international presence to cater to $100B+ global opportunity,” said Kunaal Dudeja, co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO), Virohan.
