Business leaders, Educationists, Thought Leaders and Politicians alike have been advocating that collaboration is the new key to success. Our very own PM Modi is diligently following the collaboration mantra, paving way for strong international partnerships. Vaave and GrabOn believe that collaboration is a great way ahead too. We are all set to enter into a strategic partnership that will help both companies create enduring value and achieve common goals together. GrabOn is India’s largest couponing company owned and operated by Landmark IT Solutions, Hyderabad. “The idea is to provide exclusive deals to the alumni networks powered by Vaave.

Here goes our Impact Story 2! The Alumni Association of Kalvabugga AP Residential School (AAKARSH) had its humble beginning in 2014. It started with 10 alumni who wanted to give back to their school.
