The Blue Ocean Awards are directly inspired by the blue ocean strategy, which stems from the research works of the two INSEAD Professors W.

After being extended in South Africa and Senegal in 2021, the major event Umagine Chennai hosts this Friday March 24 the jury and the ceremony of the 1st Indian edition of the Blue Ocean Awards.
