About Muraly Srinarayanathas

Muraly Srinarayanathas is a serial entrepreneur and global strategist. He serves as the Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of 369 Global, an international group of companies in the education, finance, creative, entertainment, and venture capital sectors. Muraly is considered a specialist in consumer culture and the immigrant market, namely for his unique immigration journey, international experience, and rich data collection from the business entities he leads. 

Muraly is the son of first-generation immigrant parents. He was born in the United Kingdom but spent much of his life unbounded by borders and lived in Europe, Asia, and North America. For over 25 years, he worked closely with immigrants in their local communities and built several successful businesses from the ground up across the globe. 

Gleaned from his global experience, Muraly recognizes the power of diversity and the need for brands to prioritize both global consumer culture (GCC) and local consumer culture (LCC) principles to connect with diverse audiences. Whether it’s a local woman living in Kolkata, India, or an immigrant woman from Kolkata, India, living in Waterloo, Ontario, Muraly understands how organizations can leverage consumer insights to attract, communicate, and build long-term relationships with local and global audiences, and ultimately scale businesses from the ground up. 

Muraly is a strong believer in the power of philanthropy and launched his first social purpose business under the guidance of Dr. Muhammad Yunus, the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. He continues to apply a borderless perspective to bring diverse groups of people together around a common goal. 

Muraly leads powerful initiatives that aim to create a sustainable and equitable future for all. As the Executive Chairman of 369 Global, he globalizes public and private sector leaders from around the world and forms partnerships to support local, national, and international growth. As the Chief Executive Officer of Computek College, a leading career college of 30+ years, Muraly helps train thousands of newcomers and immigrants to become job-ready and life-ready in Canada. Through 369Konnect, an integrated marketing agency, he helps brands attract and meaningfully connect with diverse consumers. 

Because giving back is a core focus of the group, Muraly also helps protect and improve holistic outcomes for underrepresented global communities through the Srinarayanathas Foundation, a charitable foundation with a hundred-year legacy.
