The idea of internshala came about in 2011, when Sarvesh Agarwal started a wordpress blog called Internshala where he wrote about education, technology and skills gap related issues. As soon as Sarvesh started writing about various organisations that were giving out internships he was flooded with questions about internships and that is how Internshala- The Internship Portal was born.
In October 2011, Sarvesh quit his job with Aviva to work full time on Internshala. Today the company works in 2 main areas of internships and trainings. The company is bootstrapped till now and is said to be profitable. In May 2015, the company had 250,000 registered interns and 10,000 registered companies on the site. Approximately 80,000 interns are hired through Internshala each year.
