2nd ASSOCHAM Innovators' Excellence Awards 2021

Last date to apply 26th November, 2021

Over the years, industry leaders have shown that innovative ideas can produce ground breaking results when face with challenges. The pandemic outbreak was no exception. However, pandemic has brought a new sense of urgency to innovative efforts, ideas and provided a unique opportunity to bring in renovation of innovation in organizations.

The call for Aatma Nirbhar Bharat by our Hon'ble Prime Minister could be achieved if our country punches above its weight class & compete to address key socio-economic challenges being faced. India has moved up two positions up to 46th rank on the global innovation index recently. The country has been constantly making progress on the innovation index from 2015 when it was ranked 81st on the list. In 2020, India entered the top 50 on the list.

India can bring a paradigm shift and can be in the top 25 countries in the next global index rankings if it continues to make consistent progress.

Taking a step forward & in a bid to contribute to the agenda of making India as the true Innovation Nation, ASSOCHAM is organizing 2nd edition of Innovators’ Excellence Awards 2021 during SMARecIndia2021 on December 03, 2021 to celebrate, reward and recognize the unique and inspiring contributions of innovators from various industry sectors and focuses on varied aspects to stimulate, initiate, and inspire interactions and aspirations to reinvent India as an Innovation Nation.
