Don't Take Our Word

The workshop on how to start an e-commerce business conducted by Jump.lk was an exceptionally informative experience. I had no intentions of starting an e-commerce business when I signed up for this workshop but I walked away with multiple ideas for potential businesses. Every high-level step to be taken when starting an e-commerce business was well explained in sufficient detail from product & website creation to logistics & delivery. I was amazed to find out that such a sophisticated website could be built on my own without coding and the help of web developers. Furthermore, a tremendously valuable cheat sheet was shared after the workshop which details the same steps discussed along with vital resources and guidelines. I would highly recommend this workshop to any hopeful entrepreneur who is considering starting a lean online business with minimum investment.

I have now been to 2 workshops organized by Nishan from Jump.lk. One which discussed How to Invest in Sri Lanka, and the other which was on how to start your own E-commerce business. The workshop on How to Start Your Own E-commerce business was well structured, easy to understand and HIGHLY INFORMATIVE.

Starting your own E-commerce business can be a daunting task for many people. Even those who are tech-savvy don't really have a clear idea on how and where to start, what kind of costs may be involved if their idea would work, how to build a site from scratch etc. Nishan pretty much de-mystifies all of these things in his workshops and they are WELL WORTH THE MONEY THAT YOU PAY.

Nishan with his blog and business Jump.lk is really providing some honest education to Sri Lankans on this subject.

I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who is interested in learning how to start and run their own internet business one day.

I participated for "How to start an e-commerce business seminar and it was just what I needed to 'jump' start my online business and I learned everything from registering my business to payment gateways to packaging and so on.

Thank you so much for conducting these programs and educating, especially the young generation to achieve their goals. Keep it up and all the best.

Who said you need to learn coding to set up your own e-commerce website? The workshop on how to start your e-commerce business gives a step by step guide for anyone to start your own online venture in a few hours. It’s rare to meet people who have the heart to share their hard-earned knowledge and make everyone win, Nishan is one of them. Thanks, Nishan.

The workshop by Nishan of Jump.lk game me the insight and the tools needed to set up an e-commerce business that I have been putting off for ages. He cleared any fears I had and answered the questions that I needed answered. I look forward to more workshops from him.

Very informative and a real eye-opener to my business. Well-presented and very enthusiastic. I would strongly recommend this workshop for someone considering starting a business and getting into e-commerce.

Nishan's workshop on How to Start Your Own E-commerce Business is a great program to get a birds-eye view of how to start and operate an online business. this program is especially useful for aspiring entrepreneurs and local businesses. the program is structured to cover all primary aspects of an online business. it is informative and insightful and the information is shared with so much passion. highly recommend it to anyone who is up for a new project to develop a business.

I have been to 2 Jump workshops so far. I strongly recommend them to anyone who is looking for ways to improve their current financial position, whether it be by starting a business or by investing. Because I attended these workshops, I now know a multitude of useful, practical pieces of information that I didn’t before. For an example, I now know exactly how to build an e-commerce business from scratch (I always thought this was out of my league and needed a lot of technical knowledge), how to register a business and how much it costs, how to start investing in the Sri Lankan and US stock markets (I myself have invested about $200 after learning how to do it) and how to manage my personal finances better. I was just an average person with an average job who had no idea why and how some people had so much money and why people like me didn’t. But now I am starting to see that there are things I can do, practical steps I can take, to slowly increase my net worth. Thank you, Nishan for conducting such practical, useful workshops!
