We are experiencing the highest rate of change, disruption, ambition and opportunity. There has never been a better time for ideas to take flight, for enterprising entrepreneurs to forge ahead and risk what they must in pursuit of their ambitions. Despite the slowdown in India, certain innovative businesses are growing at a rapid pace and recent history has witnessed investors increasingly backing such organisations.
