After building the Technology Innovation Park (TIP) with about 1.5 lakh sqft, we felt that it is time for us to extend the BUILD program to the whole nation. With Innovation as its DNA, IITH believes in developing job creators instead of job seekers. By supporting such innovators from their student days, the BUILD Scheme provides a suitable platform for these young innovators to convert their ideas into successful products, thus aiding our urge towards making India self-reliant (Atmanirbhar) and a global leader.
