It was a year ago that AllAboutBelgaum.com spurted the idea of collaboration between the various IT & ITeS companies based in Belgaum. The Idea was well picked up by all companies and resulted in the formation of ITBELGAUM group where one can meet share and explore. At this moment there are 15 companies which are run by first time entrepreneurs in different aspects and streams of IT. IT-BELGAUM was set up in May 2009, at Belgaum to facilitate business and trade in software and services and to encourage software technology.
It is now a year Old, Happy Anniversary IT Belgaum!
Belgaum is a home to many small industries, colleges, universities and the human talent is huge. Belgaum has being doing estimable in the fields like foundry, health care and others but IT(information Technology) industry is lagging behind. Be it the Desur IT park or some other projects of the Government, nothing substantial has happened in the city and most of the people are unaware of IT companies that exist in the city.
To encourage and make awareness of the presence of IT companies in Belgaum a Premier Special Interest Group called IT-BELGAUM has been formed. IT-Belgaum is the premier Association of the IT-BPO companies in Belgaum.
IT-BELGAUM aims to drive the overall growth of the global off shoring market by taking up the role of a strategic advisor to the industry. Our goals include:
- Accelerating economic development efforts and improving local talent supply.
- Strengthening local infrastructure.
- Building cohesive partnerships and driving operational excellence.
- To promote IT business with local companies and to retain local talent.
IT-BELGAUM’s members and associate member companies are broadly in the business of software development, embedded systems, software services, software products, consulting services, recruitment services, BPO services, e-commerce & web services, engineering services off shoring, animation and gaming.
The group has created awareness programs and practical workshops and seminars at GIT, KLE Engineering, Potdar Ploytechinic, IMER, BCBA, KLES BCA, Gogte BCA, Jain College, BIMS in the city giving out to the talent pool what is needed in the industry and this also initiates a student-industry interaction.
With time we will also help entrepreneurs who want to come to Belgaum and set shop here, as most of the companies are started by first time entrepreneurs, their experience would be worthwhile for the new comers to town.
The IT sector in Belgaum is very encouraging. Considering the human talent around and the blooming companies which have chosen Belgaum as their Playground, it was thought of collectively coming on a single platform where all the IT companies could share their knowledge with the community and also collaborate with each other.

Management, taxation problems, INTERNET connectivity, grooming the upcoming talent in colleges are some of the points IT-Belgaum group will emphasize on.
