New Delhi: Sachin Duggal and Saurabh Dhoot, founders of Nivio, a company that developed technologies to make cloud computing more accessible and affordable to all, became the youngest Indian attendees at the World Economic Forum in Davos. These founders are being honored among six thousand delegates as Technology Pioneers for 2009 and they join an elite group of companies chosen for innovation in developing technologies that would have a deep impact on society and businesses.

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2009 is one of the most important events in the Forum's history as it will be focused on managing the current world economic crisis and shaping the post crisis agenda. Nivio's inclusion as the Technology Pioneer 2009 emphasizes the objective of the Forum's meeting to improve the state of the world to integrate all stakeholders of a global society.

Excited about the occasion, Sachin Duggal said, "Nivio is the manifestation of our dream to create a simple and affordable computing ecosystem that fosters education, connects communities, creates dreams and empowers people. At the World Economic Forum we will be discussing with world-leaders how with the use of Nivio, the future of the world can be revolutionized; wiring up the five billion people who do not have access to computing; who remain currently disconnected from achieving their potential."

Nivio promotes complete computing freedom; liberating the users from current problems of data loss, technology obsolescence, viruses and accessibility. Nivio provides each of its users with a personal, secure virtual Windows Desktop running in the Cloud, accessible through internet connected devices & computers.
