The Hans India to honour SMEs with Excellence Awards
Hyderabad: Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), considered as the backbone of Indian economy and often described as the country's growth engine, account for major chunk of industrial output, exports and employment generation. But, unfortunately, the entrepreneurial spirit that drives the SME sector goes unnoticed and many entrepreneurs in this space, despite their innovative thinking and inventive expertise, remain unsung heroes.
The Hans India, the newspaper with a difference, is keen to change this and inject a new sense of prides among SMEs in Andhra Pradesh by honouring best among them with Excellence Awards
The SME Excellence Awards, which are slated to be presented on the occasion of second anniversary of The Hans India, will recognise SMEs for their exceptional contribution in the fields of manufacturing, service, exports and for other innovative concepts.

The novel initiative, undertaken by Hyderabad Media House Limited which owns The Hans India and HMTV news channel, is an attempt to motivate existing and emerging entrepreneurs to succeed in their respective fields. Besides, the award winners will act as role models for encouraging entrepreneurship in the State and beyond. The occasion also offers a platform for the recipients to interact with investors and other partners for their sustained growth.
