Mr. K.K. Jalan, Secretary, Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises, inaugurated the fifth edition of India’s most definitive MSME platform on Friday, the 12 February 2016 in New Delhi.

M K Anand, MD & CEO, Times Network said, “ET NOW has always promised to deliver news that impacts and empowers businesses, and with Leaders of Tomorrow we look at not only empowering the crucial MSME sector but also honoring those MSME leaders who have led their organizations to pinnacles of success. Over the years, Leaders of Tomorrow  has gone on to become India’s largest and definitive MSME platform, and we are confident that with its fifth edition, it will not only establish an even deeper connect with lakhs of MSMEs across India, but will continue to contribute to economic growth and nation building.”

The Leaders of Tomorrow initiative is India’s largest platform dedicated to the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, and will inspire and celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship to recognize emerging leaders and empower them to take their business to the next level.

Inspirational MSME stories on ET NOW:

In the run-up to the awards later this year, a yearlong feature series of weekly half-hour episodes will run on ET NOW showcasing inspirational stories from the MSME space from across the country. The series will include enlightening discussions with MSMEs and industry experts on a variety of topics and a chance to get business growth queries answered straight from the experts.

Another key aspect of the series -  to be anchored by ET NOW’s Mridu Bhandari -- will be to showcase stories that celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship and narrate fascinating examples where a little courage, a sound business plan and a good product have helped an entrepreneur to make a mark in the world of business.

15-city on-ground MSME knowledge series - MSME Connect Initiative:

ET NOW will also reach out to empower the future Leaders of Tomorrow through its pan-India road show, MSME Connect Initiative, which will roll out in 15 cities. The knowledge-driven initiative will be laced with expert sessions and interactions between industry experts and MSMEs who will discuss the challenges faced and solutions to approach their business and help take it to the next level. 

MSMEs’ crowning glory - Leaders of Tomorrow Awards:

As a befitting end to a year of inspiring and empowering the MSMEs, ET NOW will recognize and felicitate inspirational MSME entrepreneurs with India’s most coveted awards for MSMEs, the Leaders of Tomorrow Awards. These will be bestowed upon those entrepreneurs who have transformed stumbling blocks into stepping stones driven by their passion, determination and undying spirit of entrepreneurship. Tentatively scheduled for end-2016, the Leaders of Tomorrow awards will not only salute the spirit of entrepreneurship in India, but also kindle new dreams of entrepreneurial success.

So, for a fifth season, India’s most popular and successful news channel ET NOW has embarked upon the intensive, year-long, content- and knowledge-rich initiative, Leaders of Tomorrow, in keeping with its stated mission to enable and empower business. By reaching out to lakhs of hardworking MSMEs across India to educate, inspire, empower and reward them for their entrepreneurial brilliance, ET NOW believes Leaders of Tomorrow  will provide a crucial impetus to the Make In India story.
