Business Hubs had their first networking night and meet up on 15th of February 2017 at their Nugegoda Business hub.

It’s a co-working space for start up businesses, entrepreneurs, remote workers and small companies seeking a vibrant and supportive business community in which to thrive.
The ‘hub’ in Nugegoda was filled with many Sri Lankan entrepreneurs, corporates and of course the “hubbers (the co-workers who are already working there).”

The final speaker for the night was Dr. Erroll Weeransighe. He is also a prominent trainer in personal development and decision making. He enlightened the audience with some great tips and hacks on decision making and what need to be successful in the startup world.
