What is Boeing University Innovation Leadership Development?

At Boeing we are passionate about innovation and the potential to develop the Indian entrepreneurial ecosystem. We are partnering with incubators across India to engage with innovators such as you and help you get the necessary knowledge and expertise to refine your ideas and develop your investor pitches.

Select your relevant region, fill out the template and hit submit!
We are looking for problem solvers and teams that are interested to learn!

If you are a student, choose the region in which your college is located. If your team has students from more than one college in more than one region, please choose a region where most of your team goes to college.
If you are a start-up, choose the region where you live and work.  

Yes! We encourage you to apply. Applying is simple and we are looking for teams that are passionate about solving real life problems. Those problems can be solved in innovative ways that may be related to one of our themes.

We are interested in two things – What problem are you trying to solve and how? Why should we work with your team?
We will process a large number of applications and so here are some tips that will make your application stand out: respect word limits, be clear and concise, dispense with marketing speak and instead sell us on how well you understand the problem, tell us one or two things that make your team members stand out and demonstrate passion.
Don’t worry about how unique your idea is – we are interested more in your approach to solving a problem and are open to working with teams who are trying to solve the same problem or develop the same idea.

Sure. Links to videos or demo websites are welcome. But please don’t link to a website just to get more space to answer the questions – this may count against you.

No. Application is free of cost and there are no fees that will be charged for the BUILD course work. We will arrange for limited travel for teams selected for the workshop but you may have to pay for day to day expenses.

We are looking to work with pre-seed / early-stage startups to develop their business skills. Typically such startups are in conceptual stage, have no funding, no revenue, no Minimum Viable Product (or only the outlines of one) and not much customer validation.

If your team is selected, we offer learning opportunities and a chance to connect with experienced professionals in the Indian entrepreneurial ecosystem. We will give you learning resources to help you refine your business proposition and sharpen your investor pitches. We offer a chance for you to compete with your peers.
We don’t offer a guaranteed number of winners nationally and we don’t offer any funding. However, if your team is good enough, you will have a chance to win US$10,000 in prize money that you are free to use as your team decides.

The boot-camp will run for around 1 week (exact details may vary by region). You are expected to attend the full duration of the boot-camp in person. At the end of the boot-camp you will be invited to deliver your pitch to a jury in a process that may require a full day on-campus.
If selected, some lucky teams will travel to Bangalore for one day in September to participate in Boeing Innovation Day at the Boeing campus in Bangalore.
Beyond this, we expect that you will work on refining your pitches in your own time to compete effectively against your peers.

No. We are looking to work with you, the team, and not on the idea itself. Submitting more than one application will not help you.

No. We are looking to work with you, the team, and not on the idea itself. Submitting more than one application will not help you.

No – BUILD is not associated with recruitment at Boeing or at any of our partners. However, BUILD offers you a chance to build your network and showcase you and your team’s passion, enthusiasm and business acumen.

Some of the dates will be specified as we get closer to the milestones. Refer to the timeline for the latest information.

Of course! We are looking to work with a diverse range of teams. But we do look for how well your team’s qualifications fit your idea.
