“Intersection of entrepreneurship and IT sector is important in Armenia. Being a small landlocked country, Armenia relied on its educated labor force for a long time, which will help develop economy through technologies, science and business. This is something our Embassy promotes actively,” said Jacqueline Deley, Public Affairs Officer with the Embassy.
The forum will include talks about creative city development, successful incubators, and components that make a country “a startup place”.
Simultaneously, a range of Armenian startups display their product in exhibition halls.
Empowering Ideas will carry on tomorrow in Gyumri Technopark.
Itel.am performs as the media partner of the forum.
