UKTSU teams up with Lebara co-owner for “The Entrepreneurial Way”

UKTSU (UK Tamil Students’ Union), a charity organisation, run by students for students, has teamed up the co-owner and chairman of Lebara Group, Ratheesan Yoganathan, to present an innovative business scheme, aimed at developing and nurturing Tamil entrepreneurs who are aspiring to build their own businesses - “The Entrepreneurial Way”.

Aimed at university students, graduates, and anyone who dreams of creating a business of their own, the scheme intends on equipping these budding business people with the expert knowledge, experience, and contacts, to succeed. Supported by two successful entrepreneurs, Ratheesan Yoganathan, and Surinder Arora the owner of Arora and Sofitel Hotels, the scheme will include workshops and networking sessions.

As two individuals who have made it to the top, despite numerous hurdles along the way, Yoganathan and Arora hope to guide budding entrepreneurs through the ins and outs of creating your own business, including what the realities of running a business are and how to formulate a business proposal. Those who take part will then have a once in a lifetime opportunity to present their business proposals to an expert panel and receive funding and long-term support from these well-established business people.

In order to celebrate the launch of this exciting new venture, UKTSU in collaboration with Ratheesan Yoganathan will be hosting a launch event for ‘The Entrepreneurial Way’ on Wednesday 7th November from 6pm to 9pm at Cass Business School. The event will include talks by Ratheesan Yoganathan and Surinder Arora on their business inspirations and experience, as well as a drinks reception and networking session with a wide array of inspirational business people.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
