Sachin Duggal CEO of Nivio, founded the company with best friend Saurabh Dhoot whilst at Imperial College in London.

"We are honoured to have been chosen as a Technology Pioneer; it's indeed very exciting to know that a panel of experts think we are on to something! I have a strong vision of making computing as simple & affordable as Cable TV; available globally." said Duggal, "Joining the World Economic Forum will provide an opportunity for discussions with partners and the leaders who have the power to make decisions that will help extend private, personal, access to computing to the developing world (where penetration is in single digits), and reduce the complexity and environmental damage that the current "upgrade treadmill" approach to computing forces on consumers."

Nivio provides each of its users with a personal, secure virtual Windows Desktop running in the Cloud, accessible through internet connected devices & computers.

Nivio can be bundled with a device for the 5bn people in the world without a computer, or used through internet cafés or on any connected. It promotes freedom; liberating the users from current frustrations of data loss, obsolescence, viruses and accessibility.
