Global Indian Awards

Successful entrepreneur Ary Sarkar founded the Global Indian Awards in 2003 to honor individuals of Indian descent who have excelled in science, commerce, and the arts.
India’s largest weekly newspaper, India West, covered the lead-up to the awards ceremony. The newspaper’s first article, “Shekhar Suman to host Global Indian Awards”, not only announced the ceremony’s host but also explained Ary Sarkar’s motivation for creating these awards. The then-President and CEO of IG2000 Corporation noted that the Global Indian Awards would be unique because unlike Bollywood awards and other showbiz events, the Global Indian Awards would honor Indian expertise in science and entrepreneurship.

Ary Sarkar is also the founder of Global Indian Congress, an organization dedicated to advancing and uniting the global Indian community. Global Indian Congress listed its main goal as the creation of the means where people of Indian origin worldwide can commemorate and celebrate their past and present while creating new paths towards a positive future. Ary Sarkar hoped the Global Indian Awards would help achieve this goal by leading to the most glamorous night San Francisco Bay Area Indians had ever seen.
The India West story also highlighted some of Ary Sarkar’s other professional accomplishments, including his congressional recognition for outstanding service to the community by Congressman Ed Royce. It also mentioned his inclusion in Who’s Who in America, and his serving as Senior Vice President of the Federation of Indo-American Association of Northern California between 2001 and 2002. Ary Sarkar noted that the organization’s advisory board included eminent people from all over the world in the fields of sports, music, journalism, business, and politics. His connection to these professionals helped draw celebrities, politicians, and high-profile personalities from all over the world to the Global Indian Awards.

The company believes that by combining the right technologies, it is able to provide clients with a premier service regardless of the size, scope, or budget of their clinical trial.

Ary Sarkar, who currently serves as the firm’s Chairman and CEO, previously spent more than 20 years implementing some of the CTMS industry’s biggest names.

ArablePerform, a collaborative web-based CTMS platform for trial operations management, is one of the company’s most popular solutions. Developed to be implemented quickly, ArablePerform achieves this task by being easily understood by endpoint clinical users.
