Venture Engine has launched their Empowering Entrepreneurs initiative, striving to provide Sri Lankan entrepreneurs the opportunity to launch their businesses; specifically through the development of stronger business plans aided by mentoring sessions and informative workshops with some of the region’s top entrepreneurs and business leaders.
A project by Blue Ocean Ventures and the Indian Angel Network, with the support of platinum sponsors Dialog Axiata PLC and Expolanka Holdings Venture Engine is aimed at creating a platform for Sri Lankan Entrepreneurs to accelerate their business to the next level
How the concept works is by creating a platform for aspiring industrialists to launch their dream and expand it into reality with much help from some of the biggest movers and shakers in the Asian region. A select number of submissions that meet certain criteria will be shortlisted by an expert team of investors. These chosen few will be granted the once in a lifetime prospect to fine tune their business plan through a series of one-on-one mentoring sessions and workshops, both with successful local and international businessman and venture capitalists. Culminating with a final presentation to a panel, the top three business plan will be selected and warded prizes at the Finale.
