FICCI recognizes the hopes, aspirations and dreams of the younger generation as well as their zeal to excel and make a difference. It is this spirit that has driven us to form the Young Leaders Forum – an exclusive forum of young achievers from different segments of society. The Young Leaders Forum, comprising of young professionals and young achievers drawn from diverse fields of business and industry aims at building confidence and leadership skills amongst its young members. Apart from being a platform for serious networking, the forum also identifies itself with social and interactive events. It is aimed at encouraging the youth of the nation, the aspiring entrepreneurs /professionals to recognize and reinforce their role in the sustainable development of the country.

With India, emerging as the fastest growing markets in the world, its large youth population can ensure a promising entrepreneurial future for the country.
