Information

As growth accelerates, making India the fastest growing large economy in the world, this summit presents an excellent opportunity for CEOs, entrepreneurs, professionals and investors to learn more about India’s potential to become a major economic power in the 21st century – as well as a great networking opportunity for anyone already connected with India and its business community.

India has a lot to be optimistic about.  The digital economy is rapidly expanding, with the number of smart phone users expected to exceed 500 million by 2020., and the start up sector attracting billions in venture capital.  Can these tech driven businesses meet India’s economic and social needs ?

This year’s summit will be organised as a series of panel discussions with delegates encouraged to contribute and debate with speakers.  We will round off the day with a Summer Drinks Reception on one of the most spectacular roof terraces in London..!
