The Mastermind “Emerging Business Elite” Workshops

“Understanding the Indian Business Space”

  • Friday, June 18, 2021
  • Friday, August 6, 2021
  • both 6 am to 10 am PT via MS Teams


We are teaming up with the Apex Group in Mumbai to support ABM clients who want to learn about business opportunities in India.

“Leveraging the rising India opportunity holds tremendous potential for the ABM Network. Being rooted in the Indigenous business space, ABMers already operate with a high degree of cultural competence and understand the value of relationships and family. We think this will resonate well with the Indian companies we work with. We are looking forward to starting the process of relationship development by providing an understanding of India as a country and as a business destination.” Subhasis Ghosh, Managing Partner with the Apex Group

“The ABM Network is entrepreneurial and dynamic. When we met Subhasis Ghosh at ABM Vancouver Island in 2019, we knew there were future opportunities to explore. Now, two years later, we are excited to connect ABMers with the Apex Group’s expertise and network.” L. Maynard Harry, Partner with ABM

About the Workshop

Our objective is to provide a basic understanding of India, the second-most populous country, the seventh-largest country by land area, and the largest democracy in the world.

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Indian economy in 2019 was nominally worth $2.9 trillion; it is the fifth-largest economy by market exchange rates and is around $11 trillion, the third-largest by purchasing power parity [1]. With its average annual GDP growth rate of 5.8% over the past two decades, and reaching 6.1% during 2011–2012 [2], India is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies.

The workshop is designed to foster the sharing of knowledge and conversation with Subhasis Ghosh and Deepak Jakate, the facilitators, in a small cohort of five to 10 decision-makers.
