The Smart CEO’s Print & Digital Magazines were founded in October 2009 with the goal of presenting to our readers, key decisions made by India’s leading entrepreneurs, investors and CEOs. In the early-days, it was a small business focused on curating for our readers an in-depth view of the finer nuances of building a business, primarily through in-person interviews with entrepreneurs and leaders.
We promised ourselves that we wouldn’t misguide anyone with incorrect information, speculative reports or opinion pieces based on invisible “sources.”
Over the last three years, we’ve diversified and started Smart CEO Media Labs, a content studio which works with 35+ clients, creating high-quality enterprise content in the form of blogs, white papers, case studies and large-scale content marketing campaigns for B2B businesses. We work with customers in Singapore, India, U.S. and Ireland.
Smart CEO also runs a small but vibrant events business under the label – Smart CEO Live! We run Startup50 Conference & Awards, a platform to recognise India’s 50 Most Exciting Startups every year. Startup50 Alumni companies include Freshworks, Urban Ladder, OYO, PaperBoat Beverages, Mitra Biotech, Consure Medical, Forus Health, NeoGrowth and many more of India’s most exciting startups. These may be well-known brands today, but we played a role of a catalyst much before several of these brands caught the attention of an Economic Times, CNBC or Forbes.
We also ran an event series called Brand Owner’s Summit in partnership with afaqs!
We recently conceptualised Entrepreneurship 101 – a book and workshop for new entrepreneurs to better in Year-1 of starting up.
Leadership Unplugged, a digital + events platform for high-quality leadership content is our latest offering. We’re gearing up for the inaugural edition in Chennai on September 6-7, 2018 at Taj Coromandel, Chennai. Our vision for Leadership Unplugged is simple: Build a wonderful platform to bring together Leaders of 3 Different Genres – Family Business Leaders, Professional CXO Leaders and Entrepreneur-Leaders.
