USAID economic growth portfolios have leveraged the model of an Innovation Center throughout the developing world, and with particular success in the E&E region, to increase the capacity of a nascent ICT industry. With this dynamic regional model in mind, the Economic Prosperity Initiative worked with subcontractor, SSG Advisors, to conduct this feasibility study for an ICT Innovation Center in February 2012. This report presents the findings of the feasibility study.
As readers of this report will observe, the potential of the ICT sector in Georgia is considerable. In facilitating the creation of the ICT Innovation Center, USAID has a unique opportunity to make a lasting, substantial and sustainable impact in the development of Georgia’s ICT industry and workforce.
