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.
