“Entrepreneurship is a journey and NSRCEL’s Women Start-up Programme has been a wonderful companion” The Build ED's founder Shobha Regunathan says being incubated under WSP offered them mentorship from some of the best in the field and widened their perspective

NSRCEL-incubated start-up The Build ED is a blended learning solution for architects, interior designers and engineers in the construction industry.

The founder Shobha Regunathan says the courses offered by them enable students to better equip themselves with industry-relevant skills, giving them a deeper understanding of construction and of the profession at large. “Professionals can customize their learning journey by selecting a combination of short courses that are aligned to their growth. Our courses empower both students and experienced professionals alike with the allied business, management and technical knowledge required to experience success as they grow in their job roles or practice. Our courses are unique in that they are loaded with actionable principles, give insights into practical application, encourage problem solving and are customized to the unique problems of construction”, she adds. 

Founder Shobha Regunathan is an architect with a leaning towards management combining the creative and the analytical. She is an alumnus of the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi and Indian Institute of Management Bangalore. Her corporate career spans two decades. She was the National Director for Project Management at Colliers International India in her previous stint. Her focus is into both the problems plaguing the construction sector in India and those faced by the professionals in terms of lack of necessary skill, knowledge and management processes.

Shobha says that that being incubated under the Women Start-up Programme of NSRCEL has been of significant value to them since, in her own words, “it has brought to us mentorship from some of the best in the field”. She adds, “The open and inviting learning culture fostered by the professors at IIMB combined with a diverse peer group and some eye opening sessions with industry experts kept us on our toes and widened our perspective. Entrepreneurship is a journey and WSP has been a wonderful companion for those of us who are as yet taking baby steps”.
