UpGrad, an edutech start-up by Ronnie Screwvala has announced that it has acquired Pyoopil- a mobile-based SaaS product used by companies to deploy online training programmes. 
Pyoopil, founded in 2013 by Harsh Mani Tripathi, Ankan Adhikari and Aaron Basaiawmoit, is a learning product with elements of peer engagement and mentorship built in. People can use its course creation tool to design a course with a sequence of concepts and reach out to a wide audience on the platform. For each concept, users can create own content or choose relevant content from already existing resources.
 
UpGrad’s foray into addressing the large business-to-business (B2B) education needs will go hand in hand with its already existing flagship B2C offering which is mainly into  education content, interactivity, platform, technology, assessments, adaptive learning, marketing etc.
Its online offering is aiming to cut down the non-learning spend, such as lodging and travel, of the corporate and instead channel the funds towards core learning requirements. The company is also looking at training fresh talent in new age skills, before joining the company. UpGrad has also partnered with Cognizant, Genpact, Gramener, Star TV , Disney, Uber, Google, Microsoft and BookMyShow, among others, for its existing programme content.After joining the UpGrad team, Pyoopil will continue working on building learning products for working professionals.
