Lankan Angel Network cluster members including Dinesh Saparamadu, Dumindra Ratnayaka, Mano Sekaram, Ruwindhu Peiris, Sanath Fernando, Prajeeth Balasubramanium and B.C. Tan as well as Venura Mendis, Roshanth Gardiarachchi and Shafraz Rahim from Dialog, recently mentored developers/entrepreneurs at the inaugural Dialog Ideamart-Venture Engine workshop. From offering advice in terms of Dialog Ideamart’s simple, template-driven app development platform, which allows USSD, SMS alerts/updates and mobile payment integrations to be used in revenue generating apps, to demonstrating how participants could access funding, and even the types of funding they could receive, while also advising them regarding business plans, marketing and legal issues, etc., the workshop delivered a lot of information on how Dialog Ideamart developers/entrepreneurs could transform their app ideas into viable, sustainable businesses. Also proving to be a fast track for the currently open 2014 Venture Engine startup competition, organised by the Lankan Angel Network, the workshop also gave a number of Ideamart developers/entrepreneurs the opportunity to begin putting together business plans for their apps, which they expect to enter prior to the startup competition’s submission deadline of 26 May.
