The ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) has taken steps for the registration of companies engaged in the ICT industry. The registration of these companies is carried out by the Private Sector Development arm of ICTA. The primary objective is to provide prior knowledge about training programmes, workshops, grant programmes etc. In the past, companies, junior and senior level managers, trainers and entrepreneurs have benefitted through initiatives launched under the Private Sector Development Programme of ICTA.
“A participant in the spiralation programme which looks at cultivating entrepreneurship and creating technology startups, shared this thought: ‘Exposure given in the Spiralation workshops and in the Spiralation Ecosystem support, was very helpful for us to build a vision for the future. As mentioned on many occasions, now we know we have had a tunnel vision which had not properly evaluated the opportunities that existed. Thanks to these workshops and supports, we are now looking at the future in a different perspective’ “, says Sky Management Systems (Pvt.)Ltd. (SMSL). Since the launch of the spiralation initiative, which looks at supporting technology startup companies, 11 start-ups benefitted from the programme. They are now well on their way in expanding their products and services in local and global markets. The continuous engagement ensured that the start-ups remained focused in their business and growth opportunities. The mentoring and other benefits act as a catalyst, SMSL added.
