The grand KASSIA Auditorium was filled with joyous laughter and banter of the guests, who arrived to receive their deserved appreciation for contributing towards our country’s economic growth.Established over two years ago, Icons of Indian Business has been the brainchild of Srinivas Thimmegowda, who noticed the lack of recognition and appreciation meted out to small and middle-scale entrepreneurs.
