Committed to interactions, insights and impacts through technology and business
GBF aims at unlocking significant new business opportunities by bringing together the IIT Bombay community and governments, businesses, investors and trade organizations. GBF will drive the development agenda through transfer and sharing of knowledge and creating lasting partnerships that foster innovation and entrepreneurship.
Representatives from national and international businesses, trade delegations, academia and governments will link directly with latest innovations in technology, explore collaborations and seal partnerships through a single platform. Every stakeholder can therefore cut across layers of red tape to connect, collaborate and close deals.
GBF by design is a multi-disciplinary platform that works around the year through its Special Interest Groups (SIGs). This continuous interaction culminates in an annual, by-invitation only event.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
The Special Interest Groups (SIGs) ensure greater focus by facilitating continuous yearlong engagements and interactions. Attendees and participants may express interest in more than one SIG. The SIGs therefore retain flexibility for the future and are not boxed into strict vertical/horizontal segments.
Based on current global pressing needs, GBF 2015 will revolve around the subject of Development.
