“Sri Lanka Association of Software and Services Companies (SLASSCOM) partnered with Zebra Technologies (formerly known as Motorola Solutions Lanka Ltd), conducts a nationwide inter-university competition, Disrupt 2.0 – FutureX where university undergraduates and industry mentors are challenged to develop concepts for tech innovations that will address socio economic issues in Sri Lanka. It is an event to encourage innovation within the University Students as well motivate technopreneurship where the innovative concepts will not hold at concept stage, but rise as startups, which will help to achieve SLASSCOM Vision 2022 of 1000 startups”
Within the last few years there has been a huge boost in the Sri Lankan startup eco system. Numerous amounts of startups came into scenario and as well as a lot of attention was given by the investors as well. One of the key things which we saw was that among the undergraduates there is a trend going on for startups. That is to start their own business.
We see Disrupt 2.0 – FutureX as one of the greatest initiatives that has been taken to motivate the undergraduates mind sets in Innovation and Entreprenuership and we believe this would be an whole new experience for the entire undergraduate community.
