Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India] May 18 (ANI/NewsVoir): Aloha India - The Indian Franchisee of Malaysian Aloha, has launched its subsidiary Edufly Academy and Business Education E-commerce Platform (BEEP) in association with Edufly College, Malaysia in the city.

Aloha India is known for its educational initiatives for the past two decades across India and has introduced this unique concept with the sole aim to create 1 lakh entrepreneurs in India after realizing the dismal employability skills of the students who and the fact that 56 per cent of the World's young population are Indians.
"Edufly Academy is an e-commerce training academy that would train these budding entrepreneurs in the e-commerce business making them self reliant and ready to start a business with just the basic requirements," said Aloha Kumaran, MD, Edufly Academy.
"BEEP, as the name suggests, is the platform that these trained certificate holders will use to make their e-commerce transactions. Currently, BEEP has over 1 million imported products with offerings such as bags, pens, apparels, shoes, furniture, television sets, mobiles, accessories, pen drives and a million more. All these products are manufactured in China, Korea, Taiwan and Malaysia. The products are currently stored in 7 warehouses across the world including Mumbai," he added.
The Academy stipulates every Indian has to be 18 years and above and with a nominal investment spent towards e-commerce training of ten hours over a week or over a weekend at the academy. A Course certificate will be issued at the time of completion.
BEEP will, in turn, offer these "course completion students" to sell online through say an Amazon where they can list these products as a seller. Each Individual will be provided with a unique seller ID known to him or her only.
