Atal Incubation CentreBIMTECH hosted an international innovation challenge in the fond memory of Late Shri B.K Birla Ji in 2019-20, by the name of B.K Birla Global Innovation Challenge 2020 (BGIC 2020), which attracted 860 innovations across 5 countries. This event was partnered with UN Global Compact Network India, which sowed the seeds of a partnership that would foster in the coming time.

As both entities recognized that their focus lies towards the same goal, i.e. supporting innovation that can provide solutions to the new problems in these new times, during the pandemic and after, Global Impact Innovation Challenge 2020 came into existence.
