TheAppLabb CEO Kundan Joshi Receives 2016 Transformation Award in Innovation
On Saturday, June 4, our CEO Kundan Joshi was honoured to receive the 2016 Transformation Award in Innovation at the Transformation Awards Gala presented by Diversity Magazine.
Alongside fellow Transformation Award recipients including Olympic gold medalist Donovan Bailey, Global News meteorologist Anthony Farnell, 2015 Pan Am Games CEO Saad Rafi and others, Kundan walked the red carpet prior to the awards reception at the historic Fairmont Royal York Hotel in downtown Toronto.
During the ceremony, Kundan gratefully accepted the Innovation Award on behalf of his family and his team at TheAppLabb, stating “Such great honours are rarely individual achievements. They are a testament to being blessed with great people supporting and believing in you.” He promised to continue enabling innovation, saying “Our passion lies in harnessing the power of technology to make people’s lives better, be it through mobile apps or cognitive computing. And this recognition is a great validation for us to continue working harder and keep getting better at fostering innovation.” Kundan ended his speech with a reminder to the audience about the power of innovation, declaring “Today we are at a stage where technology has progressed to a point where our only limitation is our imagination. So let’s extend ourselves, imagine, think creatively about the problems in the world that really need to be solved, for the greater good of humanity and the world. If you can imagine it, with technology, we can achieve it.”
Presented by Diversity Magazine, the Transformation Awards celebrate the achievements of distinguished individuals in twelve categories. Through cross-cultural celebration, they reward community leaders who demonstrate leadership, excellence and innovation. Past recipients include Hazel McCallion, former Mayor of Mississauga; Hakimi Karimi, founder of Hakim Optical; and World Vision President Dave Toycen, to name a few.
Please join us in congratulating Kundan on this tremendous achievement!
