A Journey of Passion and Excellence
Capital IIT is the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) chapter of PAN IIT, a non-profit U.S. body that represents the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) alumni. We welcome all professionals, IIT alumnus or otherwise! While we are located in the Washington Metropolitan area, we welcome members and sponsors from beyond these geographic borders. Participants of our association include entrepreneurs, members of academia, business leaders as well as young professionals. Their combined contribution to the economy, to society and to the field of research and technology is enormous. To further this trend of Giving Back, it is our mission to provide a forum for communication, technology collaboration and professional mentorship activities for our members and sponsors.
Since its founding in 1999, Capital IIT has brought together the IITians, who share a common pride and privilege of having been a part of the premier Institute – IIT. Thanks to its founding members, Capital IIT has successfully gone through the growing pains. In June of 2002, Capital IIT was registered as a Non-profit, 501 (c) – 3 Corporation in Washington, DC. Last, and yet the most important piece is our Social Events that helps in building the fabric of friendship and trust. At these Social Events, we always keep the doors open for the professionals, visiting faculties, entrepreneurs, promoters of a social cause and our sponsors. We have strong ties to PanIIT organizations and other local chapters in the USA.
