ET NOW presents IndiaMART- Leaders of Tomorrow aims to recognize and establish the importance of small & medium scale enterprises in sustaining economic growth, increasing trade, generating employment and creating new entrepreneurs in India.


Commenting on the success of the fourth edition of ET NOW presents IndiaMART- Leaders of Tomorrow, Mr. Dinesh Agarwal, Founder & CEO, IndiaMART said, “When we had conceived the idea of bringing recognition to the unsung heroes of our country, we had little idea that our initiative would make such an impact in the SME space. I believe SMEs have the Midas touch when it comes to creating jobs, safeguarding the economy from taking a hit from a slowdown or building a robust economy. Through these awards, ET NOW & IndiaMART have tried to acknowledge the massive contribution they have made to the Indian economy.”


Speaking on this initiative, Mr. Hemant Arora, Business Head, Branded Content, Times Television Network said, “Leaders of Tomorrow was probably our first foray in the Branded Content space.  Today in the 4th year it has become the largest & most recognized exercise of truly celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit of India. Spanning over a period of 10 months with integrated marketing efforts across India, Leaders of Tomorrow is looked forward to by the SME’s across categories and anyone who has engaged with the property in the past.  We are glad that we have been able to deliver on the vision and the objectives of IndiaMART as set 4 years ago and in the process have been able to impact the most important segment of the Indian industry in a substantial way”.
