About

The annual India Business Conference, hosted by the South Asia Business Association at Columbia Business School is the premier India-focused conference in New York City and is a powerful forum that inspires thought leadership and generates discussions around the business, social, political and creative undercurrents that permeate India life.

Over the last decade, the India Business Conference has enabled discourse around varied topics including driving growth on the foundation of structural reforms, maintaining momentum provided by the sustained success of the Information Technology sector, and having an honest conversation about the challenges inherent in the Indian political and democratic system. The ideas exchanged during past conferences have permeated the academic, political and social circles.

The India Business Conference brings together decision makers and opinion shapers from across the business, social, political, and creative spectrums of India. Over the years, the conference has attracted thought leaders including Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga, former Finance Minister Hon. Yashwant Sinha, Deputy Chairperson of the Planning Commission Dr. Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Infosys Co-Founder and CEO S.D Shibulal, Nobel Laureate Dr. Joseph Stiglitz, Co-President of Warburg Pincus Charles Kaye, and Standard & Poor’s President Deven Sharma, among others.

The 2015 India Business Conference

This year’s India Business Conference will focus on Rethinking India, as we believe this is a pivotal moment in India’s history for us to take pause and rethink the conceptions we have of India, both for those within the country as well as observers. Together, we would like to discuss how we can reshape business and politics within India, and how we can use this moment to redefine India’s cultural and economic presence on the international stage.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2015 India Business Conference! Please stay tuned for more details.
