The 30 year old made it to the Times list of 100 emerging leaders who are transforming the future. Akash has helmed Reliance Jio as the chairman after dad delegated the duty to him. The enterprising young gun has played a vital role in clinching multimillion dollar investments from Google and Meta.

Akash Ambani has a net worth of USD 9,300 crores and thereby the richest heir in the country. While dad Mukesh Ambani is currently the 10th richest billionaire in the world with a net worth of $85.1 billion in the Forbes billionaire index. Who knows if Akash would be next on the leaderboard! The Times remarks that Akash was always expected to rise in business but he is also grinding and putting in hard work.
Recently at the Indian Mobile Congress, Akash demonstrated to PM Modi the capabilities of Jio’s 5G. According to Money Control, a digital outlet run by Reliance led Network18 Group, Akash Ambani has been extensively involved in developing the digital environment around Jio. He is also engaged in forging Reliance Telecom with the prowess of blockchain, artificial intelligence and machine learning. He is leading Jio from the forefront. Could he become a formidable force to recon with in Telecom? Only time will tell.

With Isha Ambani taking over the retail wing of the business, the twins have been very instrumental in leading the conglomerate to explore new avenues. The world is keenly watching the trio of Akash, Isha and Anant, as dad Mukesh Ambani takes the back seat. The world is also keenly watching how the business rivalry between the Ambanis and the Adanis pan out. Neither of these heirs take their generational wealth for granted. With business flowing in their veins, it would be an exciting decade ahead to see what they achieve.
