Back in 2016, Startup Weekend first came to Sri Lanka with Startup Weekend Jaffna. Fast forward to 2018, there has been over 10 of these right here in Sri Lanka. Now, the much-loved series is coming to schools. The very first edition of this was Startup Weekend Youth in Sri Lanka, which was held in Maris Stella, Thimbirigaskatuwa. The main objective of hosting Startup Weekend Youth events is to solely focus on nurturing school kids into embracing innovation and entrepreneurship. The traditional education system offers limited opportunities in this area for students to pursue innovative pathways.
Location: Maris Stella College, Thimbirigaskatuwa
