On 18 February at the World Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Congress in Mumbai, Soumitro Chakraborty, CEO of Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt Ltd (Fiinovation), was the toast of the town. The Congress focused on companies helping implement sustainable development goals in health, education and the social sector. That night, Chakraborty won the ‘CEO of the year’ award for Fiinovation’s work in the social development sector.
This was hardly a coming-out party for Chakraborty. Indeed, the bespectacled CEO and his Delhi-based organisation have frequently been conferred with a number of CSR-related awards.
