Dileepa Ranawake

CEO & Co-founder

As someone with Dyslexia & ADHD, my goal is to empower Neurodiverse professionals by removing the barriers they face. That's why we made Sumrise 🙂

Dileepa is a passionate neurodiversity and inclusivity advocate and a digital accessibility innovator. Dileepa is a Trustee at HEY Smile Foundation, the former CEO of a Health Tech Company and a startup mentor and guest lecturer at the University of Hull Business School. 

He has delivered a TEDx talk, has spoken at the University of Warwick on the “The future of Accessibility, the role of AI in bridging the access gap”, and on the Talamo Thoughts podcast “Harnessing the Power of Technology for Neurodiversity”.

As someone with Dyslexia and ADHD, Dileepa realised email caused him significant stress that impacted his productivity and mental health. In 2020, after researching the potential of AI and accessibility, Dileepa founded Sumrise to make email accessible and unlock the hidden potential of neurodiversity in the workplace.
