1 August, 2021

The Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) concluded another virtual forum organised as part of an awareness drive for islandwide Small and Medium Enterprises (SME). The fourth event of the series, which was held for SMEs in Jaffna, drew a significant interest among the entrepreneurial community based in the region. The series of virtual forums are hosted by CSE with the objective of promoting the advantages of listing as a means of raising funds as opposed to traditional methods available specifically for companies that qualify to list on the Empower Board. The Jaffna forum follows those organised for SMEs in Matara, Negombo and Anuradhapura over the past two months. Advisory Board Member of Atarah Capital Partners (Pvt) Ltd., Jeyavarman joined the discussion with insight on why an SME should list on The Empower Board and Suraj Surwaweera, Managing Director of Chrissworld Limited, shared the company’s experience in the listing process.

Managing Director of Atarah Capital Partners, Rohan Senewiratne said the company’s experience as a sponsor and the sponsor’s role. S. Sabananthan, Acting Manager of the Jaffna Branch, Colombo Stock Exchange, joined the guest speakers in a Question-and-Answer session which fostered an engaging and open conversation with the participating entrepreneurs.
