About us

AlumNetworks aims to help educational institutions grow, leverage, and unlock the value of their alumni networks, so as to be able to generate and impart knowledge of the highest quality. Years of participation in alumni activities have helped us in understanding the pain points in institute-alumni relations and the huge untapped potential of alumni networks.

Our mission is to revolutionize alumni engagement and education support by bridging the gap between educational institutes and their graduates. Our innovative platform redefines the relationship, rekindling the connection between graduates and their Alma Mater and our unique funding model helps institutes to effortlessly generate revenue, at zero cost!

Our platform doesn’t just rejuvenate the alumni network, it also creates a symbiotic relationship that benefits both sides

Over the last quarter we have successfully built the engagement model with our first institute partner – a Tier 1 Post Graduate/ MBA Institute Alumni Association. We have put our words to action and brought alive our comprehensive white-label solution encompassing a cutting-edge alumni portal, user-friendly iOS and Android apps, and our weekly e-magazine, AlumZine.

This has been possible by the efforts of a passionate team that brings diverse expertise onto the table. Together, the core management team form an exceptional set of skills that blends strategic vision, technological prowess, operational excellence, and creative marketing strategies. It almost seems serendipitous that their collective experience is a perfect fit to drive AlumNetworks’ mission to reshape alumni engagement and education support, fostering an ecosystem that benefits institutes, alumni, and brand partners alike.
