We sincerely thank Mr. Ashish Bhartia (Director — IIT BHU Global Alumni Association) and all the other members of the alumni association for providing us with the golden opportunity of building the Official Alumni Portal for IIT (BHU) Varanasi.

The alumni association was keen on revamping it’s old alumni website into a more interactive and user friendly one. In spite of being the largest alumni association among all IITs, the association was facing challenges in effectively managing its alumni relations. After considering multiple options and numerous conversations, the association chose Vaave as their Official Alumni Engagement Partner. They felt that Vaave, with an impressive track record of working with many premier institutions across India will help them achieve their goals in the most effective way possible by providing a technology solution to streamline alumni engagement and also by continuously supporting them in their efforts.

IIT BHU Global Alumni Association (IBGAA) launched the new portal on September 17 and it was heartening to see the response from their beloved alumni.

Within a few minutes of announcing the launch on their Facebook page, the post was flooded with many likes and shares.

We look forward to a long lasting relationship with IIT (BHU) Varanasi and maintaining the trust that they have put in us. We are committed to helping the institution and the alumni association connect back to their alumni in a meaningful manner.
