To expound this theme and to discuss its business implications, Avenues invites the participation of distinguished world-renowned individuals. This year, the speaker list includes the renowned actor, screenwriter and filmmaker Mr. Kamal Hassan, the industrialist and philanthropist- Mr. Adi Godrej, the leading corporate advisor- Mr. S. Gurumurthy, Mr. Subrata Roy, Chairman, Sahara group and  Mr. Satish Jha- the social entrepreneur and president of "One Laptop per Child"

In keeping with the theme, the events lined up for Avenues 2010, including Abhyutthan- the maketing innovation event, Nirvikriti- for sustainable tourism, all deal with change and  sustainable business evolution.

Navonmesh is the international entrepreneurship convention, which highlights the hurdles faced by start-ups with regard to innovative and sustainable business ideas. Ashwamedh is a case study, which will help participants to understand how the mysterious Private Equity firms operate. In addition to these, there will be online quizzes and entertaining, on-the spot games.
