The AllWorld Network, co-founded by Professor Michael Porter of Harvard Business School, and The Joint Apparel Association Forum (Sri Lanka Apparel) announced the launch of AllWorld’s Sri Lanka Fast Growth 25 (SriLanka25). 
 
This is a pioneering effort to showcase and rank the most innovative and dynamic fast-growth private companies in Sri Lanka through a rigorous international credentialing process that discovers entrepreneurs with a track record of success in growth markets. 
 
The All World Network Fast Growth SriLanka25 project was launched by His Excellency the President Mahinda Rajapaksa by unveiling the official logo, in the presence of Co-CEO of AllWorld Network, Ms. Anne Habiby and U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka Michele J. Sison together with leading private sector business magnates and entrepreneurs, senior government officials, and cabinet ministers.
 
Speaking at the launch ceremony, U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Michele J. Sison said “This venture is a successful outgrowth of AllWorld Network’s meetings last year with top Sri Lankan CEOs who visited the United States on a trip organized by the Business Council for International Understanding in order to encourage greater linkages between Sri Lankan and U.S. companies. Our goal with these programs is to expand these partnerships, fostering a win/win environment where business-to-business connections can flourish.”
 
“The goal of AllWorld’s SriLanka25 is to present a deeper picture of Sri Lanka’s entrepreneurial and innovative capacity based on real time annual information,” said Anne Habiby, Co-CEO of AllWorld Network. “This SriLanka25 ranking and accompanying data will facilitate access to capital, open new markets for entrepreneurs, provide real time feedback to policy makers and point the way forward for entrepreneurs to create the next economy for their country. When entrepreneurship takes hold, the growth momentum builds, generating economic breakthroughs and social progress.”
