ICTA holds ‘ImagineIF’ workshops to inspire undergraduates on entrepreneurship

The Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) conducts workshops under the ‘ImagineIF’ program to inspire undergraduates on entrepreneurship.

The program, launched last year, aims at building entrepreneurs who can transform viable business ideas to globally scalable startups.

ImagineIF has already been hosted in eight State universities benefiting over 1,500 undergraduates.

The program runs workshop-style for three days in a hosting university.

The need of the concept was first mooted in 2017 as part of the Disrupt Asia program. Discussions with State and non-State university academics, administrative bodies of universities, University Grants Commission and the Startup Eco-System; resulted in conceptualising the ImagineIF program that has actively supported the undergraduates who are aspiring to be entrepreneurs.

As the next step of the ongoing initiative, ICTA plans to conduct vertical based inter-university programs where students from similar faculties of all the universities are invited to one platform for a series of workshops supported by experts and entrepreneurs.
