"Awesome event, wish there are more events like this. It really helped me connect with other like minded entrepreneurs and investors to grow my network"

Kirushanthi Kumaranathan COO, Zenzpot

"As entrepreneurs, we need good guidance and motivation. This well-organized competition did an excellent job of providing us with both. We experienced no bias because only one team from Sri Lanka competed in the final. Rather, we received more motivation and direction throughout all of the webinars. Thank you very much, and please keep up the good work in the coming years."

Abiran Raveenthiran VP, VxV Solutions Inc.

"More than a typical pitch competition, the Tamil Startup Pitch Competition experience was resourceful with legal, accounting, pitching and marketing seminars behind the scenes that set a beginning baseline of educational information that assisted in setting the foundation for any business. CTCC, Good Ventures and CTPA were able to coordinate such a strong selection of inspirational and supportive Tamil professionals who truly cared to be resourceful."

Vithushan Namasivayasivam Founder, Skillify

"The Tamil Venture Zone was incredibly useful for me. I learned about many different aspects of launching a business from industry veterans who had a wealth of experience and knowledge to share. The mentors were all supportive and want to see you succeed. You also get to meet other like minded founders who are all working on amazing problems. It’s a great environment to put yourself into that will help motivate and inspire you. Being a founder can be a lonely road, and it’s great to connect with people who are in a similar situation."
