Mumbai: ET NOW, India’s leading English Business News channel, is launching a brand new series India Inc 2.0. This series features some of the most dynamic corporate leaders of tomorrow, young men and women armed with powerful surnames but carving their own niche in the corporate landscape. We take them out of boardrooms, into their workplace and finds out what are the challenges and pressure that they face, in being India Inc 2.0.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Sandeep Gurumurthi, Executive Editor, ET NOW said, “India is evolving as a hub of young entrepreneurs who have created new opportunities and trends to build a dynamic business model. What’s interesting to see is that how these young entrepreneurs are ready to move out of their successful family business and explore different avenues to become successful entrepreneurs. The idea of celebrating the spirit of entrepreneurship resulted in India Inc 2.0.”
These young leaders have convinced some of the toughest boardrooms to diversify from core businesses and introduce new age processes. They are redefining corporate India and changing the rules of the game.
For example, Analjit Singh’s 30-year old daughter Tara shares how she secured Max board’s approval to set up the country’s first senior living home in a hill station. Abhimanyu Munjal, 32, gets candid with all the difficulties he faced after getting Hero Motocorp’s green light to foray into financial services.
The series begins with HCL Founder Shiv Nadar’s only child Roshni who takes us to the 20-acre non profit school in Uttar Pradesh to open up about why education is the next big gamble.
Then there’s Ajay Piramal’s son Anand who chose to not enter the family’s core business of pharmaceuticals but instead pursue real estate.
