While TalentSprint won the Red Herring's Top 100 Asia Award, recognizing it as the most promising Private venture from the Asian business region, Santanu Paul, CEO of TalentSprint received the FICCI LeapVault Skill Development Roll of Honour.

On the demand side, the company works closely with industry partners to deliver productivity and efficiency gains in excess of 70% in terms of new talent acquisition.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Asia. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Asia to the Top 100 Winners. We believe TalentSprint embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. TalentSprint should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been".
The founding team of TalentSprint comprising J.A. Chowdary, Santanu Paul, and Madhumurty Ronanki said, "We are proud to receive this coveted award as the most promising Private ventures from the Asian business region. This is validation that skill development and employability are now a rising concern for all emerging economies. Changing demographics suggest that industry-centric experiential learning must reach young and aspiring professionals, and scale and speed are both important. Looking ahead, TalentSprint has its work cut out."
