The newly launched offerings include personalized and hybrid learning experiences, conducted by leading industry experts. The programs leverage a state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS) offering flexible subscriptions, contemporary Learning and Development (L&D) frameworks, and project-based learning geared towards achieving tangible outcomes at the workplace. For educational institutes, Hero Vired has planned employability bootcamps complete with placement support, alongside residential training programs hosted at the BML Munjal University campus. Additionally, for large corporations and startups, the initiative will encompass skill enhancement and talent development workshops. In the public sector, the company aims to equip PSUs and government agencies with cutting-edge skills essential for workforce advancement.

Akshay Munjal, Founder and CEO of Hero Vired, stated, “In today’s rapidly changing employment landscape, which demands speed and agility, we are intensifying our engagement in the B2B sector. Our focus will be on bridging skill gaps, forging deeper connections with organizations, and diversifying our revenue streams. With strategic positioning to bolster the B2B segment, we aim for over 100 partnerships and to facilitate over 100,000 man-hours of upskilling. Our goal is to be the preferred training partner for both corporations and educational institutions, fully equipping our learners with the essential skills and knowledge for the future of work in Industry 4.0.

The demand for specialized training and upskilling programs is becoming increasingly apparent across various sectors, particularly as large corporations emphasize engineering and technical training, while tech startups focus on advanced technological skills. Notably, with the recognized shortage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) talent and high attrition rates, more companies are opting to invest in training their current employees rather than hiring new ones. Consequently, Hero Vired’s expansion into the B2B sector reflects a growing awareness of the challenges related to skilling and adaptation within different industries. This segment is projected to contribute to 50% of the companys total revenue in the coming year.

We are committed to molding the future workforce and establishing ourselves as the go-to skilling partner in the B2B sector.
