CNBC Awaaz, the Hindi business news channel from the house of Network18, will launch a corporate reality show, called Chota Business Bade Sapne – Ban Jao Biyani, which aims to encourage entrepreneurial talent from small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
The show gives the aspiring entrepreneurs a platform to achieve their dream of becoming big and it goes beyond just ideas by providing the participants with help and recognition.
Sanjay Pugalia, editor-in-chief, CNBC Awaaz, says, “The show was launched with the simple objective of acknowledging the growing SME sector and to support the entrepreneurs who aim to make it big.”
Sanjay continues, “We have always been associated with the SME sector through numerous initiatives. Chota Business Bade Sapne is a huge step in the direction of development of SMEs by bringing the expertise and guidance of a business legend to the emerging entrepreneurs.”
The successful entrepreneur, Kishore Biyani of Future Group, will act as a guide and mentor to participants on the show. The channel has finished the on-ground activities for the show by receiving 2,000 entries from across the country.
The scope of the popularity of the show can be ascertained from the fact that the maximum entries received were not only from the big cities like Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Mumbai and Ludhiana but also from small pockets of the country such as Siliguri, Thiruvellore, Rourkela and Ichalkaranji.
The on-ground events gave the participants an opportunity to present their business summaries and future expansion plans before an esteemed panel, which guided them with their expertise to make their business plans more effective.
The panel also commented on the presentations and discussed various aspects of identifying and exploiting possible opportunities in the SME sector as well as what it takes to rise to the top of the SME game.
