Press release from: IndiaMART InterMESH Ltd

Mr. Devadas Y. Naik, Chairman, Highland Holiday Homes (Goa) Private Ltd. grabbed the award at the felicitation ceremony

New Delhi, 14th December, 2011: When the time and tide were against him, it was Mr. Devadas Y. Naik's (Chairman, Highland Holiday Homes (Goa) Private Ltd.) perseverance, hard work and right attitude that converged eventually to overturn them and emerge a winner. What better an acknowledgment for this victory than India's most prestigious awards for MSMEs - ET NOW-IndiaMART Leaders of Tomorrow Award 2011. He was conferred with this award being the best MSME under Travel and Hospitality category at the recently held Awards Ceremony. Mr. NR Narayana Murthy, Chairman Emeritus, Infosys Technologies, an inspirational figure for the entire Indian business community, congratulated Mr. Naik on this well deserved feat.

Admiring the diligence and fighting spirit of the winner, Mr. Dinesh Agarwal, Founder & CEO,, said, Entrepreneurs like Mr. Naik are rare who fight the adversities and win what they deserve. His growth story has inspired all of us to combat till last, no matter what it takes. We extend our best wishes to him and hope this award would become a driving force behind his future aspirations and goals in life.

Ecstatic on being adjudged Leader of Tomorrow, Mr. Devadas Y. Naik, said, This was the most challenging of all the awards I have won in the recent past. The elimination rounds, the rigorous implementation of rules to level the playing field, explaining my innovation and getting the attention of juries from the cream of the corporate world was a unique experience. It gives me further impetus to continue the growth trajectory I am following with Team Highland. Be warned: more innovations follow

Mr. Naik started out with a dream to create wealth. Since then, it has been a roller coaster ride for him experiencing acute lows and steep heights during the journey. He began with running a successful inter-state tea and coffee blending business, saw it fail when the USSR broke up and the big players flooded the Indian market with their products. He had to start from the scratch all over again but this did not discourage him and he opted for real estate, construction and hospitality. Eventually, he owned a marvellous Highland Beach resort in Candolim, Goa, which brought his dreams to life and won the prestigious ET NOW-IndiaMART Leaders of Tomorrow Award for him.

Mr. Naik's journey is just one of the numerous inspiring tales at 'ET NOW-IndiaMART Leaders of Tomorrow Awards 2011', India's leading platform that acknowledges the efforts and achievements of the Indian MSMEs. The opportunities are lurking and waiting for all aspiring entrepreneurs to grab. With this platform, it is the time to prove the metal and mettle to the world.
