Global Impact Awards have Indian connections

The Global Impact Awards honor Metro Atlanta Chamber members for excellence and innovation in the area of international business.


Surya Carpets won the Economic Development Foreign Investment Award, over two Chinese companies. Surya M. Tiwari, from the northeastern village of Ugapur, India, went to Bombay, found an opportunity, and in one week made it a business. He then began operating in the U.S. in order to make the business more responsive to clients, and is now the only rug manufacturer to offer accessories as well as rugs. Surya’s son Satya Tiwari, U.S. Division President of Surya, Inc. in Calhoun, Georgia, has expanded the company dramatically and achieved several industry awards.








Suniva was a finalist for the Economic Development - Trade/Business Development Award. Ajeet Rohatgi, Ph.D., Founder and Chief Technical Officer, is one of the world’s leading research scientists in photovoltaic (PV) technology and a Regents’ Professor at Georgia Tech. Suniva previously placed number one on the Atlanta Business Chronicle Pacesetter Awards.









St. Joseph’s Translational Research Institute was also a finalist in this category. SJTRI’s mission is to translate scientific discoveries into modern therapeutics for patient care. It has collaborated with 40 global companies including some in India. Jai Pal Singh, Ph.D., has been SJTRI’s Chief Scientific Officer.
