SLASSCOM Product and Platform Council
As many of you may already be aware, the SLASSCOM Product and Platform Council (PPC) aims to fuel the growth of technology products in Sri Lanka by bringing together innovative founders, technology enthusiasts, and other professionals who are focused on scaling up products and platforms.
While a few Sri Lankan product companies have had significant success stories over the years, we at SLASSCOM are confident that there is room for many more companies to attain such heights. By enabling that vision we expect to increase the contribution to export revenue from technology products to become 25% of total revenue by 2040, through foreign investment, product licensing, and exit strategies.
The PPC catalyzes the scale-up journey of product companies by establishing a community, generating the content, influencing policy and coaching, through specific focus groups.
- Create an Ecosystem platform that product companies can leverage for skills, knowledge, and networking, build brand presence and tap into global resources
- Lay the foundation for a Product Academy that would help build skills in all product-related disciplines such as product management, product marketing, product engineering, product experience, etc,
- Improve relevant policy and infrastructure through dialogue with the government and related stakeholders
- Support companies to scale up their products and platforms by means of mentoring, coaching, and networking so that they are ready to expand In current markets and new ones
