VyapaarHub has also tied up with many institutions like SingTel, Indian Business Brokers Association, International Accreditation Organization, Accreditation Service for International Colleges (ASIC, UK), Franchise Biz Experts (US), and Zillya, to name a few.

A bootstrapped company, they were recently recognised by UBI index (Sweden) as one among the top 25 per cent performing business consulting and incubation organisations in the world.

During the initial stages, they were faced with many difficulties, including the fluctuating market dynamics, hesitancy in taking services virtually and trust factor of a newly started company. Concentrating their entire marketing energy on the online front like Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media channels, they also get a major chunk of their business from word-of-mouth referrals from a satisfied client base.

The VyapaarHub team has also started Gurukul, a virtual entrepreneurship cell and VyapaarHub Labs, an interactive platform for entrepreneurs and startups. They also conduct unique programmes like E-Incubation Hangouts, India's first Virtual Education Fair, Free
