To share this amazing story about B.V.B. College of Engineering and Technology, Hubli which is building a platform for Entrepreneurs- Which is helping both Startups and Students.


Hubli a tier-2 city in North Karnataka is Hub of Education with 4 Engineering colleges and is 400 km far from IT capital of India -Bangalore. Though Karnataka has witnessed a globally acclaimed IT revolution, most of the tier-2 cities of Karnataka have become mere manpower supplying sources, than anything else. With a combination of less than adequate infrastructure and lack of local leadership, Tier-2 cities have become mute spectators in this exciting IT phenomena.
But B.V. Bhoomaraddi College of Engineering and Technology, Hubli, established in 1947, has taken up the task to change this. Over past 10 years they have done numerous things to foster Entrepreneurship.


  • An open mind to share and learn and Enjoy!
