"Punjabis have succeeded all over the world and it would be an exciting opportunity to help inspire the new generation of entrepreneurs from this region," Marc added.

"We are looking at developing the next rung of entrepreneurial champions to develop socially-relevant products, improve the lives of people, and drive economic growth," Stelle added.
