Founded in 2017 by a group of academics with a common goal, the Innovation Ecosystem North East Sri Lanka project was kicked off as a result of the founders’ firm resolve in influencing the current state of affairs in Sri Lanka. Our goal is to empower great minds locally, to ultimately benefit the local, and global environment with entrepreneurial ideas.Having first hand experience with many talented individuals in Sri Lanka, it is our belief that the best way to bring about positive change country, is by investing in its’ innovators. In an effort to position ourselves to be effective, the areas which we are currently targeting are economics, healthcare, agriculture, and Information Technology
We are strong advocates of building people, so that they will be able to build others around them, ultimately having a national, and hopefully global impact. Boasting a multi-national support system, our passionate team of organizers are located throughout Canada, USA, and Sri Lanka.
We count on our sponsors, partners, and individuals who share our vision, to support us through furthering the launch and implementation of our project! Our plan is to apply ourselves as soon as possible in working with our local agents, to to have a functioning program with all of the required facilities.
Our vision is to be a global partner in educating, and providing comprehensive support for underprivileged entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka. We firmly believe that the empowerment of great minds is the single best way of being invested in the growth in quality of life for individuals, communities, and even nations.
We are an investor funded, not for profit innovation hub, whose objective is to provide budding entrepreneurs with extensive mentoring, advanced, seminar styled education, among other highly curated resources to be maximally receptive to great innovations which come from great innovators.
Our approach was founded on research and the passion for educating and developing potentially game-changing individuals. Our organizational values share a proud, Canadian root and this is best exemplified through our egalitarian drive to create equal opportunities for all, especially enabling the women who have traditionally faced higher unemployment, and fewer opportunities.
