A New India by 2022

Myntra and Jabong CEO, Ananth Narayanan, was invited to speak during the Champions of Change Programme initiated by NITI Aayog. Among other ministers and dignitaries, the audience also included Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Around 200 young entrepreneurs and CEOs from across the country were present at the programme to present their ideas to the PM.

Ananth spoke on “A New India by 2022”, covering not only technological and corporate solutions for economic growth but also skilled workforce, agricultural transformation, poverty eradication, social capital and gender parity. The focus of his presentation was on “Inclusive and Innovative India” in which he discussed ideas that could be applied to all of India.

The Programme was put together by the Government of India to bring all the entrepreneurial thinking caps together in a room, and listen to and learn from their ideas on the growth and development of the country. The ideas presented by Ananth were not based not only on technology and economics but also included progressive developmental and social components. The set of ideas that unfolded raised the need to bring farmers, women, people with disabilities and transgender into the developmental mainstream.
