The winning ideas will be taken to the industry stalwarts for presentation! Find out more about the competition in this article.

India’s GDP is expected to reach approximately $6 trillion by 2030, supported by consumption and investment growth. The key contributors to this story will be grabbing new opportunities, thinking out of the box and coming up with transformational ideas.
