Innovation doesn't occur in a vacuum

…nor should it. Innovation is a process and it is facilitated through developing and maintaining complex networks and open ecosystems.

BuILD is the meeting point for students, organizations, and researchers interested in innovation making. It is the place, where innovation processes are unpacked with the aim to cultivate problem solving skills, design thinking, strategic and leadership skills and innovative concept development.

We are driven by our research and set out to meaningfully contribute to the discussion surrounding innovation from the classroom to the board room, and everywhere in between.

We exist to inspire creativity and critical thinking and work tirelessly to integrate organizations into academics and our research proves it.
