In the capital city of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram—The city of Lord Anantha—within the expansive grounds of Mar Ivanios Vidya Nagar, a transformative tale unfolded. The journey commenced within the walls of a fading MBA college, a mere 30,000 square feet of space grappling to keep pace with the evolving dynamics of education.
Rewind to 2017 and witness the transformation of these halls, once grounded, now given wings to soar higher. Bloombloom, with its innovative approach, breathed new vigor into this institution, turning it into a dynamic hub of collaborative learning and cutting-edge innovation. The first B-HUB, the offline platform, took flight on July 2, 2017, inaugurated by the then Union Minister of Health, Dr. Harshwardhan
Spanning across 200 acres, the campus housed a diverse array of institutions, from kindergartens to arts & professional colleges, catering to over 20,000 students. Mar Ivanios Vidya Nagar, with roots dating back to the 1950s, had witnessed the evolution of education over the decades.
With B-HUB, the numbers started to tell a different story. 9000 passionate educators, true practitioners and leaders, 500 content producers, and a staggering 100,000 learners, ranging from 6 to 60 years old, became integral parts of this vibrant co-learning ecosystem. Active learning programs flourished, numbering over 3000, covering a spectrum from arts to artificial intelligence.
In the spirit of curiosity, passion, and inspiration, B-HUBs powered by Bloombloom emerged as epicenters of enterprising talent development. The transformation wasn't limited to academic pursuits; it embraced diverse skill communities, totaling over 150, from technology to management to even cake making. Within the 30,000 square feet of the first center, a unique model unfolded, fostering collaborations among 200+ companies and academies. B-HUBs became more than just hubs; they transformed into catalysts for innovation, birthing around 500 startups, contributing significantly to the local ecosystem, specifically in Trivandrum.
Distinctive in its approach, B-HUBs prioritized the development of enterprising talent, creating a shift from conventional innovation ecosystems. The impact wasn't confined to the boundaries of the campus; it resonated throughout Trivandrum, contributing meaningfully to the broader community.
Today, the success story of B-HUB is ready for global replication. As a franchisable model standardized and activated by Bloombloom, it extends an invitation to organizations worldwide to partake in this movement. A unique model unfolds, promising to build an Enterprising Talent Ecosystem at scale, rewriting the narrative of education and innovation on a global stage.
