About Us

The Young Leaders’ Forum (formerly YEW) was setup by the IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 2001. Our mission is to create a platform for young Indian leaders to build a network, grow and realize their own potential. Through cutting-edge events, forums, site visits and workshops the forum aspires to provide opportunities and expose young Indians to a cross section of leadership issues. The YLF aims to be the youth platform most known for identifying and empowering Leaders.

The YLF greatly benefits from its association with the prestigious IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry. In many ways, the YLF's new emphasis on 'Indian leadership' is consistent with the IMC's rich legacy of engaging and attracting great patriots such as Mahatma Gandhi and GD Birla as its members. Post-independence, the chamber continues its association with dynamic personalities who have played a vital role in India’s transformation. Pandit Nehru, JRD Tata, Atal Behari Vajpayee and Dr. APJ Kalam have all at some point graced the chamber with their presence and thought-provoking addresses.

We are looking for motivated young professionals such as yourself to be a part of the YLF and build a platform that is beneficial for both you and your country.
