Good Life X nurtures second accelerator cohort
Inspired by the success of last year’s inaugural cohort, the Good Life X (GLX) Accelerator programme’s, second set of innovative companies graduated recently after successfully completing their intensive and immersive three-month training.
The second cohort, which kicked off in July, comprised ten startups in the Food, Travel, Wellness and Design sectors, demonstrating the true intent of the programme. The timing was vital for the above sectors in the country especially amidst the pandemic and its effects on the local business landscape.
Supported by the GIZ Sri Lanka’s SME Sector Development Programme (on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development), the GLX Accelerator programme has created a strong platform to foster ethical and sustainable early-stage entrepreneurial businesses. Growth and innovation is nurtured in selected post-revenue startups through guidance, training, a strong network of education partners, and other useful resources specially designed to help them refine and scale up their businesses.
Last year, founders of six companies were provided access to a vibrant ecosystem to evolve and the opportunity to accelerate their companies and their impact in contributing to a more sustainable future.
