About us


Vaanahaa is a comprehensive education platform and a collaborative learning environment. It is the place for everyone to find the Inspiration, Knowledge, Resources, Innovations & countless contingency they need at their best. With our vision intact we wanted to use technology in education to bring forth a disruptive positive impact, to transform theoretical geniuses into industry experts.

Here at this point let us take you to the most important point and that’s “WHY” we have started this organization. May 28th,2018 we have started Vaanahaa Education and Innovation Labs with a vision of helping students to become Industry Ready.

India is country with 2200+ Technical Institutes, 2900+ administrative Institutes with 15 lakh+ students graduating every year. Research says India is currently seeing 70million+ students and this fig going to increase almost 50-55% by the end of 2022.

With this many youths where India supposed to be the workforce of world’s engine but unfortunately it’s struggling to provide enough opportunities for these young learners. So we thought of going to the root of these problems and this is what we found,

Key Reasons:

  • Students are concentrating on theoretical knowledge
  • Lack of Practical Exposure
  • Lesser Industry relevance
Consequence :

  • Less job opportunities
  • Less Salary
  • Unhappy Recruitment
  • Organizations spend a huge sum of money after recruitment just to train them.

With the establishment of Vaanahaa, we are trying to address this problem through to create more employability while reducing the cost of recruitment for companies.

Our courses are moduled and developed with the help of Industry Experts, Life Coaches, Mentors, Corporates to add more value to a learners life.

We are thankful to all the associate Institute, our advisors for their constant support, guidance, and blessing to help us keep doing more good works for the community of future leaders of this nation.
