Build is a property of SkipTheLine Technologies Pvt Ltd. It is a cohort and community for side hustles, started by Prashant Sharma in August 2021. In 18 months, we have run 6 cohorts impacting ~500 builders to launch side projects. We started with 55 builders in Cohort 1 and have had 100 each in the next consecutive cohorts. The goal of the community is to enable any individual to build a side project and launch it in 4 weeks with structured guidance & community conversations + collaborations.
