Women Technopreneurs: The Landscape for Women Technology Entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka

September 30, 2021

Sri Lanka's tech sector is predominantly male, with low representation of women tech founders. Ensuring that women are well-placed to compete as technopreneurs will empower them personally and drive development. To date in Sri Lanka there is limited evidence of the types of support women
may need to more effectively participate as technopreneurs. This study seeks to fill this gap. With this in mind, SLASSCOM’s Women Technopreneur Forum, together with IFC, deployed a survey to better understand the challenges women technopreneurs face and to design interventions to support their growth using sex disaggregated data.
