A Hunt for India’s
Most Innovative Business Idea

Indians are some of the biggest, greatest and best entrepreneurs in the world. Their business acumen and passion for success has been recognized and lauded the world over. They have inspired millions to think big and doggedly pursue their dreams of making it big. Today, doing business across any vertical is wrought with stiff competition. We are seeing a whole new generation of entrepreneurs who are doing things differently through some innovation and identifying new business opportunities.

These New-age Entrepreneurs and visionaries are redefining the way business has been traditionally done. Through every new opportunity, we see individuals who are not only young but are also not averse to taking risks.

Continuing with Network18's endeavor of promoting 'entrepreneurship' and 'start-ups' in India, ‘The Venture', a joint initiative with DS Group, hunts for next big entrepreneurial idea that is yet to be conceived.
