It is time to deliver the idea of India to its people. And the country’s business leaders are doing just that.

Becoming the fastest-growing economy in the world would not have been possible without the passionate and energetic business leaders, who have made it their raison d’etre to pursue excellence via innovations, breakthroughs and ideas. Collectively, these leaders have not only re-imagined India but in the process have ignited and galvanized a billion people.

To acknowledge and honour these luminaries for their great vision ICICI Bank and CNBC-TV18 have joined hands to institute the Finance15 list. These Awards will honor India’s finest and brightest minds in the areas of business, economy and finance.

Finance15 is a tribute to the outstanding leaders who are inspiring a new generation of business leaders.

By recognising and saluting such leaders, ICICI Bank and CNBC-TV18 hope to foster the spirit of “we can do” environment that will transform India.
