EO Sri Lanka, established in 2017, is a thriving chapter within the organization with 49 local entrepreneurs. “This was a year that saw us emerging from perhaps one of the most challenging times in Sri Lanka. The focus for many of our members’ companies was very much on survival. But standing still is not survival. To survive we must stretch, adapt and thrive. Entrepreneurs know this better than anyone,” said EO Sri Lanka Chapter president Jithendran Gajendran, Partner at GAJMA & Co.. He added, “EO Sri Lanka is filled with pride to be the host country for this event and I am grateful to our regional leadership for making it happen here and supporting our country in a pivotal point in its history.”
