Hi, I'm Nav Dhunay. Welcome to my profile!
Nav Dhunay's Bio:
Nav Dhunay is the CEO and President of the Calgary-based technology firm, Ambyint, a company that is committed in bringing the latest innovations in mobile technologies to the oil and gas industry.
Nav moved to Canada from India with his family when he was a young boy. With little more than twenty-five dollars to their name, the Dhunay family worked hard to establish a life for themselves in Canada. Their deep belief that anything is possible and that every goal can be achieved has propelled Nav throughout his career and is a constant source of inspiration.
After earning his degree in Computer Science from the University of Calgary in the mid-90’s, Nav Dhunay went on to work for Getty Images, the American stock photo agency. Nav set himself apart as a leader and unconventional thinker at the company, and through his guidance and leadership, Nav helped Getty Images establish itself as a leader in the digital imaging sector.
In 2008, Nav followed his passion and formed his own start-up, the web-based home movie rental site ‘Canflix’. Canflix was an early leader in the now established video streaming industry.
Following the success of Canflix, Nav developed NavNet, a pioneering control and home automation technology solution that provided users the ability to control thermostats, lights and music in their home remotely from mobile phones.
With years of experience consulting and launching his own startups, Nav took this knowledge and most recently formed Ambyint. With headquarters in Canada’s oil rich province of Alberta, Ambyint has established itself as a premiere tech company that is bringing the Industrial Internet of Things to Canada’s oil patch. Ambyint’s state of the art IoT technology utilizes lightweight sensors, wireless communications and big data analytics to enhance the oil extraction process.
As an innovative thinker, Nav is excited to bring big ideas, not to mention small devices, to help the oil industry run more efficiently.
Nav is a supporter of a variety of Calgary-based charitable organizations, like the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter, the Canadian Red Cross and Big Brothers and Sisters of Canada. As an avid techie, Nav ensures he stays informed on the latest tech innovations. He is also a Superman enthusiast who collects rare memorabilia featuring his caped hero.
