Success Story:
Lay UP

During his undergraduate studies, Sheran Corera created the gamified eLearing platform LayUp hoping that one day it would improve education for users worldwide.

Like most entrepreneurs, he started small with many ups and downs. But, Sheran was tenacious and wanted to reach a wider audience fast. He approached Creative Software with an early version of LayUp, showing us what eLearning could look like in the future. We recognised the potential and came on board.

In partnership with Creative Software, Sheran co-founded Creative eLearning and its flagship product LayUp was introduced to the market. Within 18 months, LayUp reached over 15,000 paying users and $1 million in signed contracts, listing several Sri Lankan blue chip companies as clients and making a mark overseas.

Today, Sheran is recognised as one of Sri Lanka’s most promising entrepreneurs, and LayUp’s user footprint has expanded to include Sweden and Silicon Valley.

"Being technically competent or having a cool idea alone is not enough to succeed. I believe success comes from strong execution and having a keen understanding of the value you create to the end customer. In your early days, it's important to have the right partnerships to grow fast." - Sheran Corera

We know that Sri Lanka has a lot of potential. We want to take that potential out of classrooms and office cubicles, and give it the attention and support it deserves.
