The Sri Lanka Association for Software Services Companies (SLASSCOM), the national chamber for the IT and BPM industry in Sri Lanka calls applications for the SLASSCOM Ingenuity Awards 2021 (formerly known as SLASSCOM Innovation Awards), which is to be held for the third consecutive year, in celebration of great innovators in Sri Lanka. 

Conducted as an all-island competition representing all-age groups, all ethnic groups, businesses of all sizes, universities and schools, SLASSCOM Ingenuity Awards recognises and rewards innovations that fuel ingenuity. The awards ceremony will provide a platform for organisations and individuals of all domains to showcase their innovations and be recognised nationwide while opportunities for seed-funding, mentorships and to be acquainted with industry experts also await them. 

Organised under the ‘Island of Ingenuity’ concept, the national brand for the IT/BPM sector, this year’s awards ceremony covers the nine provinces with an awards ceremony to be held in each province. The initial phase will be staged from the provincial level and the competition will later move on to the national level. The grand awards ceremony is due to be held on March 30 at the Shangri-La hotel, Colombo. 

Commenting on the ‘Upcoming Woman Technopreneur of the Year’ award, WTech Forum Board Director, Shehani Seneviratne said, “Female entrepreneurs play a vital role in our Digital Economy. The Ingenuity Awards will recognise Sri Lanka’s next generation of female innovators as well.”
