Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a kolikuttu. 


i can't believe Launch Day is two days from now! Perhaps in the midst of organizing, refining, and stressing (I definitely had a nightmare about Launch Day going completely wrong last night. Something involving the Hilton falling apart during team presentations), we have neglected to look up and realize how close Launch Day actually was.

Regardless, I think I speak for us all when I say we are thrilled for Launch Day. Both the instructors and students have worked extraordinarily hard to make this event AWESOME! I've compiled a list of why this event will be amazing

  1. We have the best and brightest students of Sri Lanka presenting their products
  2. We have the country's top CEOs attending
  3. We have an assortment of investors looking to sponsor the students
  4. We have a member of Parliament as a guest speaker
  5. We have the country's top 3 mobile providers coming to look and potentially invest in the students' applications

All this in 7 weeks, too. Our students have broken our and probably their own expectations in the past whirlwind of weeks. All those nights coding until the sun rose, all those back-to-back meetings with executive were all worth it. 

Here's to a great MIT AITI 2012 Sri Lanka Launch Day!


Here is our program and here are our honorable judges.
