Jaffna Boy: Danu Innasithamby, Sri Lanka
Outspoken. Irreverent. No bull. These are rare qualities in Sri Lankan society, and even rarer for Sri Lankan influencers who run their own companies. Indi Samarajiva started YAMU, the digital guide to Colombo and Sri Lanka 5 years ago, and the way the company operates says a lot about its founder.
In our Season 1 finale, Tanya & Udhara talked to Indi about moving back to Sri Lanka after growing up in North America, building a content company in a country whose startup culture is in its infancy, and his views on everything from Sri Lankan education to Buddhism.
