Over the past decade, the Sri Lankan startup ecosystem has come a long way. In the past, founders may have struggled to find funding, support, and guidance for their startups. Today, there’s a host of investors, accelerators, and other programmes eager to help young startups grow. Further, these efforts aren’t limited to Colombo, as seen by the likes of the Yarl IT Hub, Uva Startup Hub, and the UNDP HackaDev programme to name a few. In recent years, even large corporations like John Keells, Dialog Axiata, Hemas, and others have launched their own efforts to support startups.
