    Great to see new faces:)

  2. rajiv January 4, 2013 at 6:29 AM - 

    Good top 100, but convulted and lopsided ranking list.. Looks like ranking is basis popularity and visibility in events! The real power people and industry veterns- the likes of Vinod Thadani, Maddy, ratish, unny, neville are languishing at the bottom! And whats Vikram chandra doing in this list? Satyan gajwani shoukd be at the very no 1…

  3. Roshan Singh January 3, 2013 at 6:06 PM - 

    Wonderful list! couldn’t agree more :)

  4. Sultan Sheikh January 3, 2013 at 5:51 PM - 

    A Comprehensive list of all movers and shakers of the industry! Thanks guys!

  5. Sahil Wadhwa January 3, 2013 at 5:38 PM - 

    Nice to see this being put into place. Some quick observations on the winners (all of them are winners, really!)
    Deep Karla: From startup to being listed on NASDAQ – truly an inspiration to us all
    Satyan Gajwani: Wunderkind!
    Sachin & Binny Bansal: They make sure my book collection is always well stocked :) Really awesome, what they have achieved
    Dippak Khurana: Big innovator! Really created a marketplace where there was none – making a lot of developers and advertisers really happy
    Roopak Saluja: Gives his client a Bang for their buck… good to see him on this list – underrated!

    Phew – many more on the list, but these are my 2 cents!

  6. Deepak Srivastav January 3, 2013 at 1:28 AM - 

    Thanks for compiling a great list Pitchonnet!

  7. Abhishek Balsara January 3, 2013 at 1:26 AM - 

    nice list!

  8. Peter January 2, 2013 at 4:36 PM - 

    So many great names on this list and great to see our CEO making the top 100! India is a hotbed of innovation and brilliant minds, watch out Silicon Valley!

  9. keval pathak December 27, 2012 at 6:19 PM -
