Business Enterprises of Tomorrow 2020

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown everyday life and businesses completely off guard. As is the case across the globe, in India, the situation has led to changes in customer behaviors, disrupted supply chains, and dented cash flows. Needless to say, small and mid-sized businesses have had to bear a bigger brunt. While the Government has introduced several measures and initiatives to support businesses and help stage an economic revival, businesses themselves will have to adapt to the current environment and gear themselves for a quick resurgence once the situation shows signs of improvement. SMEs and Mid-Corporates, which collectively account for more than 90% of India's business enterprises, need to play a dominant role in this revival. It would not be wrong to label SMEs and Mid-Corporates as ‘Business Enterprises of Tomorrow’’, since many of them are likely to go on to become corporate monoliths in the future.

For more than a decade, Dun & Bradstreet has been compiling the 'Leading SMEs of India' publication to list and profile the leading entities from the Indian SME sector. Over the years, the publication has built a reputation of being among the most credible and comprehensive compendiums on Indian SMEs.

This year, however, Dun & Bradstreet will be releasing two publications – ‘Leading SMEs of India 2020’ and ‘Leading Mid-Corporates of India 2020’ as a tribute to small and mid-sized companies and to promote the spirit of entrepreneurship. These publications will be released at a virtual event titled ‘Business Enterprises of Tomorrow 2020’, which is scheduled to take place in November 2020. The central theme for this event will be ‘Atma-Nirbhar Bharat’.

Each of these publications will feature:-

  • Listing of the leading (eligible) SMEs and Mid-Corporates of India
  • Overviews section providing in-depth analysis of key sectors that play an important role in India’s economic development
  • Insights on the business impact of the pandemic on SMEs and Mid-Corporates
  • Interviews, Case Studies and Success stories of SMEs / Mid-Corporates, showcasing their responses to the pandemic

About the Publications

In order to showcase the critical role played by small and mid-sized businesses and their contribution to the Indian economy, Dun & Bradstreet is pleased to announce the release of two publications – Leading SMEs of India 2020 and Leading Mid-Corporates of India 2020. These publications will capture the pulse of Indian SMEs and Mid-Sized Corporates, the views of their business leaders, and their outlook for the near future. The publications will be circulated through digital platforms among CXOs of leading corporates, MSMEs and Mid-Corporates, the BFSI sector and Government ministries, among others. They will be also made available for download on Dun & Bradstreet’s website.
