On 23 April, the local team in Colombo – pictured above – got rolling with an afternoon presser prior to the sky-lounge evening function. Inspiring keynotes were delivered by Reshan Dewapura, CEO of the ICT Agency, and several of the main organizing partners, followed by yet another Skype video (damn that cloud) from Jari and the traditional candle lighting ceremony.
MoMo Global was represented by Dr. Madan Rao from India, above, while Teemu and Lars were thrilled to meet the Really Great profs and students from the Mobile Labs at the University of Moratuwa.
Several daily news clips noted the launch (see Here and Here) and the local chapter website is coming up Here. With no less than eight partner companies leading the charge, and valuable support from the Centre of Excellence for Telco and Mobile at SLASSCOM, we are certain the future is bright for MoMo activities on that beautiful island, full of talented and energetic people, off the tip of India.
