Innovation, entrepreneurship, & leadership have a new address. BIEL @ COEP is one of the best startup ecosystems in India.

'Bhau' means elder brother. In the Indian culture, you enjoy a special relationship with your elder brother. He is the one you lean on for guidance, support and a helping hand in all your adventures. He helps you pick yourself up when you fall. He provides just enough guidance to get you going and gradually launches you into the real world.
This is the spirit for BIEL
We push students, entrepreneurs and startups to not only find their own calling but also unleash their full potential. We provide just enough guidance for them to support their dreams and ambitions. At COEP, we desire our students to become entrepreneurs in their own right and help them find their own place under the sun.
BIEL has been in operation on COEP campus for last few years, supporting the growth and development of students. Seeing the need for entrepreneurship and incubation support, the founders, who are COEP alumni and first generation entrepreneurs, decided to create a scalable world-class global incubator for startup India.
INR 4.25 Crores have been contributed for a 26000 sq. ft. 3 story building that is to be inaugurated in Feb'2017. The quality and size of the infrastructure and facilities are comparable to top-level incubators in the USA.
The incubator will be open to all.
