"Founded more than a decade ago, the Horasis India Business Meeting has become the most important annual meeting for Indian business leaders and their global counterparts. India, recognized as the fastest growing economy in the world, is growing at about 8% annually. Almost all of its economic indicators suggest that the country is on the right track, favored by the implementation of a national tax on goods and services. At the Horasis India Meeting, leaders will analyze the rise of Indian companies towards global excellence, while discussing how to grow the country's economy in a sustainable manner. It is a pleasure for Horasis to collaborate with IE University in the organization of the Horasis India Meeting and the exchange of knowledge and business experiences," said Frank- Jurgen Richter, Chairman of Horasis.



Since 2009, Horasis India Business Meeting has positioned itself as a unique platform for Indian companies looking to globalize their operations in Western economies. This independent think tank has been holding worldwide meetings since 2005 to analyze the economic situation and provide a strategic forecast of the most critical challenges facing large corporations and societies.

The most emblematic meetings are the Global Horasis, which is held once a year, as well as the regional summits focusing on India, China and Southeast Asia. All Horasis meetings are held on the assumption that growth strategies require thought leadership, so programs are always structured to achieve the maximum amount of knowledge.

The first edition of Horasis India was held in 2009 in Munich (Germany). Since then it has been held in Madrid (2010), Naples (Italy, 2011), Antwerp (Belgium, 2012), Belfast (Northern Ireland, 2013), Liverpool (England, 2014), Interlaken (Switzerland, 2015) Cascais (Portugal, 2016), Interlaken (Switzerland, 2017) and Malaga (2018).
