Making realty, a reality for all

The typical Indian city skyline is dotted with cranes. Towering high-rises have become an integral part of the urban landscape. Real estate developers are delivering properties that seem like engineering marvels. However, a significant proportion of the Indian diaspora does not have adequate housing. Every family needs a roof over their heads. Realty can make “affordable housing” a reality. The SREI Infrastructure club at Indian School of Business offers an opportunity for students to grasp such emerging trends by interacting with industry experts, conducting site visits and attending relevant seminars and conferences.

Sponsored by SREI, the Infrastructure club in collaboration with the Consulting club is organizing its flagship Business Plan competition – Building Blocks. This contest has been designed to ensure that participants learn to utilize a demographic trend and turn it into a viable business opportunity with a social cause. The contest finalists shall be hosted at the ISB campus where participants will have the privilege to interact with industry experts as well as the entire Real Estate and Infrastructure community at ISB.
