Mumbai: The Indian edition of ‘Forbes’ was launched in Mumbai on Thursday by Steve Forbes, chairman and CEO of Forbes Media Llc and editor-in-chief of ‘Forbes’, and Raghav Bahl, founder and editor of Network18, amid much fanfare.
Forbes said: “We are excited to be working with one of India’s leading media groups, Network18, as our partner. I doubt there’s been a better time to launch Forbes India. In the midst of an economic doom and gloom, India’s story is one of resilience in adversity and optimism for the future.”
Bahl added: “The Indian media landscape has had quite a few inflection points in its history. These are points when the rules of the game change and a new language of content emerges and the landscape alters fundamentally. We believe that this will be that inflection point for business coverage in the country. A point which will redefine in India how wealth creation will be understood, how business leaders will choose to lead, and indeed how business will be done.”
