VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 3rd, 2018.
Every year, Concordia University Alumni association honors contributions made by alumni, students, friends, faculty and staff. As one of the leading educational institutions in Canada, Concordia has been committed to society, innovation and excellence. This year, Fay Arjomandi, co-founder of mimik, and Chairwoman of H2 Wellness has been awarded the Alumnus/Alumna of the year recognition for her professional excellence and community leadership. Fay received B.A.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Concordia University in 1998.
From August 2014 to September 2016 she was CEO of a group of mobile companies under Nantworks, including Tensorcom, and NantMobile. Prior to that, Fay was the CEO of Vodafone xone where she successfully launched Vodafone xone in Silicon Valley as the global incubation center for Vodafone Group and the beta brand for many of its operating companies worldwide.
Prior to Vodafone, Fay was a founder and CEO of three start-up companies L3 Technology, Mobidia, and Disternet (now mimik). In 2014, she was named as one of the most influential women business leaders in Silicon Valley by San Francisco Business Week, and in 2006, received the Distinguished Business in Vancouver’s “Top 40 Under 40” award presented to outstanding leaders in their chosen fields.
Fay has been a thought leader in decentralized computing since 2009. Her passion is to create a decentralized edge cloud platform to ensure internet remains open and consumers are in charge of their personal data and information. She is also active in many philanthropic efforts and is an advisor to several companies with a progressive social agenda including Studytracks and BrightBuddies.
mimik has developed a software platform that turns any computing device into a potential edge cloud server capable of discovery and microservice communication with other server nodes in a decentralized fashion with no need for a central server or even internet. mimik expands the existing central cloud to all computing devices and creates an edge cloud fabric that is potentially millions of times larger than Amazon Web Services (AWS).
