Nissanga Warnapura, who had as a child dreamt of becoming a giraffe when he grew up, came on stage to speak of the power of imagination, about being different, social negativity met in one’s life and breaking barriers to innovate.

Nissanga is an innovator. He’s that quietly excited, politely intelligent guy that is going to provide you with a disruptive solution to your problem that is so mind-blowing that it leaves you feeling excited about your problem in the first place. This unorthodox attitude of his aided in him making his way out of his first professional journey at a leading apparel manufacturer in Sri Lanka, and founding ‘3D Concept Studio’ instead. 3D Concept Studio- Sri Lanka’s first 3D printing fab lab, started out two and a half years ago as a rapid prototyping company and has now grown to be one of the country’s leading innovative solutions providers. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Nottingham, UK.
