Currently serving global brands such as Daimler, Mercedes, Petronas, Prudential and over 1000 other organisations across 20 countries, BoardPAC and IronOne Technologies are already on the road to becoming the world’s top brands.

Winner of ‘The SAARC Woman Entrepreneur Award 2019’, Lakmini Wijesundera believes that the Glass Ceiling is in your mind and what you make of it. Breaking barriers and reaching the skies, Lakmini has proved to the country and the world that being a woman with perseverance, you can achieve anything. In a world where only a handful of women continue to learn mathematics and engineering as part of their higher education, Lakmini thrives in the world of mathematics and computer engineering.
Lakmini is the youngest daughter of late Professor Stanley Wijesundera, Prof. of Bio-Chemistry and the first Vice Chancellor of the University of Colombo (1979), who brought the University to what it is today, Professor Wijesundera, an Oxford University graduate was instrumental in guiding Lakmini with his sound advice. And then, Lakmini believes that she inherited her risk gene from her mother Anoja Wijesundera who comes from an entrepreneurial and political family. Anoja Wijewardene, Lakmini’s mother is the sister of one of the most entrepreneurial businessmen, media tycoons and aristocratic descendants in Sri Lanka, late Upali Wijewardene.
