The Silicon Valley based institute is now available to high-potential founders in Sri Lanka. Since launching in Colombo, Sri Lanka in 2020 last year, the program has graduated eight companies in Sri Lanka including Niftron which recently raised angel funding of LKR 21 million in April/May 2021.
The upcoming Sri Lanka Virtual 2021 program is now accepting applications. This Founder Institute cohort will be held completely online, allowing anyone to build a business alongside some of Sri Lanka’s top entrepreneurs and investors from the comfort of home. It is an intensive program that is open to anybody ranging from individuals interested in doing a startup to founders that have already built a prototype (provided they have not raised over USD $500,000 in funding).
