Meaning ‘immediately’ in the founders’ mother tongue; Pataz hopes to fulfil the dire need of an international marketplace for Sri Lankan businesses of various scales and scopes. Pataz is the world’s largest influencer powered community of exporters, importers, manufacturers, wholesalers and buyers from around the world.

The platform provides convenient, direct, and instant access for buyers around the world to connect with manufacturers, suppliers and farmers in a broad spectrum of industries across the world. In other words, it’s the first-ever matching platform for the worldwide sourcing industry.

Pataz was formed to fulfil this need, create expansive opportunities for subscribers, and capitalise on this opportunity.

“Pataz is a unique learning algorithm-based platform that connects factories and manufacturers whether large or small with buyers. It allows connecting more than 100 variables when someone is searching for a particular factory or manufacturer or creating a profile to build their business. With higher verifications than competing platforms, our people-to-people network is even ideal for small entrepreneurial companies looking to expand their reach,” Pataz Co-Founder Chamli commented. is driven by a network of people called Patazians, who are individuals that help businesses get the necessary exposure in foreign markets and showcase their products online. “Our competitors are country-specific, leaving buyers and sellers from other parts of the globe at a disadvantage. Pataz goes beyond connecting buyers and sellers on a single global platform, making it easy to source manufacturers and products from all over the world”, expressed Andy.

Patazians bring factories and businesses onto the platform. Their primary role is to help factories or businesses showcase their products and services on the platform and ensure that their product line is tackling the international region that is most suitable to their needs.

“We are creating virtual trade shows where brands can showcase their products for niche markets. Pataz allows businesses to showcase their products in other countries without the hassle of government regulations, travelling and other related costs. Our network will enhance their business strategies and the future goals of the small to medium factories that we are going to connect with,” Chamli added. has already connected with over 1000 factories globally which include 20+ Sri Lankan companies. At a time where Sri Lanka is facing huge difficulties in terms of foreign exchange and import restrictions, could help Sri Lankan businesses to find buyers globally and improve exports.
