Startup Sri Lanka, an initiative by SLASSCOM Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum is partnering with Infocomm Investments Pte Ltd (IIPL), the investment arm of the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) to support and grow Sri Lankan tech start-ups.
The partnership will see both parties collaborate on projects that drive innovation and technology in both start-up ecosystems. High potential start-ups in Sri Lanka will be selected for mentorship, training and market access opportunities amongst others to develop and grow their product and company. Strategic partners of this initiative also include industry stakeholders such as SLASSCOM, ICTA, Lanka Angel Network (LAN) and Open University of Sri Lanka.
Sri Lankan start-ups identified with regional growth and potential can also be shortlisted for IIPL's global start-up exchange programme, where they will be exposed to the Singapore start-up ecosystem. Through a four-week immersion, start-ups will be acquainted with ecosystem players and be given a co-working space at BASH (Singapore’s largest integrated start-up space) to network with members and partners of the tech building community across the entire value chain - from accelerators, investors, incubators to entrepreneurs – all under one roof.
