The Indian Awards

The Indian Awards

Launched in 2017, as part of the UK – India Year of Culture, the awards concept is the brainchild of Amarjit Singh, founder and chief executive of the India Business Group, and someone who has been passionately involved in promoting stronger relations between the UK, EU and India markets for over fifteen years.

The IBG Indian Awards initiative aims to

  • Recognise individuals, entrepreneurs, organisations and businesses who have contributed to strengthening the UK-India partnership, culturally, socially or economically.
  • Showcase business leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship and share key contributions to bilateral relationships.
  • Promote and create synergies for cross border business, trade and investment between India and the UK.
  • Inspire and encourage the next generation of UK and Indian entrepreneurs, facilitators, bridge builders who will take our obvious and incredible special relationship to newer and greater heights.

We are delighted to present the fourth Indian Awards, organised by the India Business Group, a leading business advisory consultancy working in the UK-India corridor.

To date, the invitation-only annual awards ceremony and gala dinner have been held at the House of Commons (London) to showcase top contributions to UK-India relations to a global audience. We have recognised and honoured individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses and organisations who have pioneered innovation and contributed to sustaining and strengthening UK-India economic, business, social and cultural relations’.

The UK and India relationship has a shared history going back centuries, with strong democracies, connected cultural institutions and the English language. There are currently over 1.5 million people of Indian origin living in the UK and several hundred UK and Indian businesses operating in each country.

The modern relationship between the UK and India is at a key juncture. Through The Indian Awards we aim to inspire and encourage the next generation of UK and Indian entrepreneurs, facilitators and bridge builders who will take the bilateral relationship to greater heights.

IBG is working in partnership with the UK Department for International Trade (DIT), for promoting and strengthening bilateral engagement between the UK and India. As such, we will be running a bespoke 12-month digital campaign under the GREATforCollaboration branding to showcase the diverse level of collaboration already taking place between our nations.
