The exclusive field comprises a heady mixture of top notch CEOs from across the country who will get a chance to rub shoulders with the top pros in this prestigious event.
The four-venue event teed off in Bangalore and covered Kolkata and Mumbai before reaching for its final stop - Delhi. The respective winners from each City will also be seen in action in the Grand Finale.
