An entrepreneur has to define the journey he has chosen to undertake and in most cases, he has also to create his own route for reaching his destination. Overcoming challenges, though exciting in its own way, can also be daunting at times and success only comes to the most dedicated and persistent people. The achievements of all these finalists today must be seen in this context.
We have always valued our association with entrepreneurs, who are the prime movers of the economy. All the winners have been providing a differential value proposition to customers by effectively using technology and innovation. We salute their achievements.
