Overview

Sergei Brin co-founded Google when he was 25. Steve Jobs was just 19 when he started Apple with 26-year old Steve Wozniak. Their youth and their subsequent success demonstrates that IT is one of very few industries where a young person with good ideas, ambitions and hard work can attain the kind of success that was previously only available with access to significant capital.

The Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) understands the worth of such significant Young ICT Professionals as they not only benefit the companies they work for but the entire industry and country as well.

In this light, they have instituted an awards scheme to recognize exceptional professionals in the industry. The scheme is being run through ICTA’s ICT Capacity Building Programme (ICBP). The awards consist of a scholarship to an international training course as well.

The awards are :-

Most Outstanding Entrepreneur
Most Outstanding CEO
Young ICT Professional

 

 

Young ICT Professional

He/she will be recognized from amongst the many who submitted applications, as the most promising among them. The independent expert group that evaluated the applications, came to the unanimous conclusion that the selected awardees were the best and the brightest among the applicants. They stated that they had the potential to make a substantial contribution to the industry in the years to come.

Most Outstanding Entrepreneur

The award will recognize a young entrepreneur in the IT-BPO sector, who has started small, taken business risks, and successfully exploited market opportunities, to grow into the medium or large scale industry that he/she leads today. The industry and indeed the country, needs many more of these pioneers.

Most Outstanding CEO

He/she will be someone who has made a significant contribution to the industry as a whole, during the past year, besides leading his/her own company, to greater heights. In this inaugural year of staging annual IT-BPO Industry awards, there is no doubt that the stature of the awardee will bring prestige to the award, rather than the award itself enhancing the stature of the awardee.
