Neel Chowdhury, Vice-President, Marketing, CNBC-TV18 and CNBC Awaaz, said, “‘Young Turks’ is one of the most acclaimed shows on Indian television, which has celebrated the spirit of young enterprise. After having featured more than 400 young entrepreneurs from across India, it was natural that we expand the footprint onto a global scale. Through ‘Young Turks International’, Indian audiences will see young achievers with a strong India connect and who are paving the way to global leadership.”
