Myly is bent upon helping education in reaching out to even the last mile; we have a special affection for this Jaipur-headquartered start-up.

 Valumni is a unique way of reconnecting to your old buddies from your alma maters. While Alumni networking in India is still at a very nascent stage and not taken seriously, except for a few premium institutes of the country, Valumni is building an Alumni Eco-System for educational institutes and corporate India to learn from each other and grow together.

We are not only a platform for building your alumni relations but can also play the role of a partner and an advisor to build your alumni from ground zero to a sustainable level,

says Sanjay Kumar, Founder of Valumni

As a partner, Valumni activates all critical factors during the process and help you ignite the alumni relationship. This is a unique concept and relatively new for India. In the coming years, the need for such a networking app will become more of a necessity.
