Calcey, a global software product engineering and consulting company with a two decade long
presence in Sri Lanka, recently launched ‘Ride 4 Good’, a unique mountain biking expedition
with a charitable cause behind it.
Founder and CEO Mangala Karunaratne, while explaining the cause behind ‘Ride 4 Good’ said,
“Calcey Springboard started earlier this year, with the aim of contributing to Sri Lanka’s pool of
tech talent. The program provides fully funded coding scholarships to deserving students who
aspire to become software engineers. The first cohort is nearly halfway through their academic
program, and we want to help these soon-to-be graduates find their first internships. I invite my
friends in the industry to come forward and pledge interview opportunities via the ‘Ride 4 Good’
website. This is a great chance to positively impact someone’s life.”
The Springboard curriculum includes courses from prestigious institutions such as Harvard
University, Georgia Tech, IBM, University of Michigan, and TUDelft, which are complemented
with rigorous assessments after each semester. Companies interested in contributing to the
cause can pledge interview opportunities by visiting www.calcey.com/Ride4Good and consider
hiring candidates who successfully navigate their interview processes.
