TT Correspondent |  |  12 Jun 2012

The founders of DataWind Ltd., Raja Singh Tuli and Suneet Singh Tuli were awarded the Technology Achievement Award by the Indo-Canadian Chamber of Commerce (ICCC at its annual Awards and Gala night at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.


The Technology Achievement Award was presented by Canadian Minister of Natural Resources, Honourable Joseph Oliver and ICCC President Satish Thakkar. “Our goal was to bring out the role models and celebrate their achievements in order to inspire, motivate and acknowledge their contribution to the fabric of Canadian society,” said Thakkar.


Serial entrepreneurs, Raja and Suneet have launched a number successful technology ventures over the last twenty years that resulted in successful initial public offerings on the Nasdaq stock market and products that even received recognition by the Guinness book of records. Most recently the development of the Aakash & UbiSlate tablet computers gained worldwide attention as the world’s least expensive computing/internet devices, breaking the affordability barrier in order to allow the next three billion people access to the internet.  Raja Tuli is a celebrated inventor with over five dozen patents across a wide range of imaging, communication and internet technologies.


Suneet Singh Tuli, CEO of DataWind said, “We are honored to be recognized; it is a great validation of our vision, giving us the boost to persevere against significant odds in our mission to democratize the Internet by making it affordable for billions around the world” This award is in addition to a number of awards won by DataWind over the last six months, including that of UK’s most innovative mobile company by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI).
