ENCOURAGING ENTREPRENEURSHIP ABILITIES AMONGST STUDENTS IN THE SABARAGAMUWA REGION
Nurturing students with an entrepreneurial mindset and directing their notable brain power towards building solutions for a sustainable future by launching innovative companies that meet the needs of the future market landscape, is the focus of an upcoming awareness webinar for university students of the Sabaragamuwa area by Sri Lanka Association of Software and Services Companies (SLASSCOM).
Dedicated towards harnessing the talents of emerging entrepreneurs, the aim of this initiative is to expand regional inclusivity, building capacity and skills, and enabling technology diffusion and gender specific initiatives in the Sabaragamuwa region for tech start-ups, higher education institutes as well as schools.
This event covers a comprehensive line up of subject areas that cover studying the competitive market landscape, identifying the best type of start-ups that suits your needs, how to promote the startup, raise capital, build and lead teams and scale-up the business for the global market landscape.
Case studies spotlighting 2 entrepreneurial journeys of former university students who are now successful entrepreneurs in their own right; the specialty being that one of the speakers is himself from the Sabaragamuwa region, are among the key highlights of this webinar.
These entrepreneurial journeys comprise those of Kalinga Gunawardhana: a regional IT leader and an academic specialized in Business Intelligence and CEO of Cey Digital and Akhila Wijesundara CEO/MD and Co-Founder of Nova System Solutions (PVT) Ltd; an Australian-based web and mobile application development company. Going forward, another key part of this initiative will be to enable future startups in the Sabaragamuwa area to gain access to foreign markets and access to investor funding and mentorships for startups and scaleup.
The Entrepreneur Power-ups 3 session will be held online on 26 October 2022 from 4.00 p.m. onwards to serve as a platform for university students and create much required inspiration towards starting an entrepreneurial journey.
