CFO India launches the FinThinkers initiative to celebrate the power of ideas

September 4, 2013

CFO India, the leading business magazine for the CFO community in India, will host the FinThinkers Fest 2013 with an aim to fill a gap in India’s CFO community. It is a first-of-its-kind initiative to recognise and reward ideas as opposed to action, given their commitment to promoting thought leadership. “Way too often we focus our attention on material achievements, and overlook, where it all begins – with an ‘idea’. Our intention is to build a universe of possibilities in terms of ideas that could shape the future of finance,” said Anuradha Das Mathur, editor, CFO India.

CFO India has partnered with Deloitte for The FinThinkers Fest and ideas are flowing in from CFOs across the country. A pre-eminent jury with finance gurus such as Anil Singhvi, Giri Giridhar, Deepak Ghaisas, Ambar Chowdhury, R Natarajan, Ravi Ramu and others will assess ideas that have the potential to make a difference to their business, their company or their role as a CFO. They will examine ideas for distinctiveness, scalability, implementability and their potential impact. The categories reflect the opportunities and responsibilities witnessed by CFOs everyday; from new ways to think about raising money to how to think about traditional cost centres. The FinThinkers Fest will hopefully create an entirely new vocabulary for CFOs over time.

Says Sanjoy Sen, senior director, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India Private Limited, “We have been looking to build a platform to capture the wisdom and insights that India’s CFOs have in incredible measure. The FinThinkers Fest is an initiative that is driven by the importance of thought leadership. ”

The FinThinkers Fest 2013 is an annual initiative starting this year. The first round is underway and the ‘winning ideas’ will be showcased alongside the Fourth Annual CFO Conclave in Goa in mid-September which receives close to a 100 senior finance professionals.

CFO India is one of the leading brands of 9.9 Media,  one of India’s most diversified media companies that integrates its print, online, research and event platforms to serve highly targeted communities such as Owner-Managers / Entrepreneurs, CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, CFOs, Manufacturing & Logistics professionals, IT professionals, channel partners, gamers, personal technology enthusiasts and leading institutes of higher education.
