Entrepreneurs are the people who create wealth to the society and the nation. They are the people who add value to indigenous raw materials and human talents. They create employment opportunities and their contribution to the national economy is substantial.

Economic policies conducive to promote entrepreneurs and enterprises should essentially bring positive results to the country and the public, said COYLE Chairman Nayana Dehigama. In highly uncertain market conditions, as individuals the challenges and risks faced by entrepreneurs in the process of wealth creation are enormous. Therefore, an entrepreneurial friendly government is necessarily a high consolation, a blessing and an encouragement for us, he added.

Established in 1999, COYLE has a membership of over 125 active members who are young entrepreneurs from different parts of the country representing almost all the industry segments. It is pertinent to mention that President Mahinda Rajapaksa was instrumental in the formation of COYLE 13 years ago, who at that time foresaw the necessity of a body to address the needs of emerging entrepreneurs and local enterprises.
