Georgia Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan announced last week the launch of the Partnership for Inclusive Innovation, a public-private alliance dedicated to making Georgia the technology capital of the Eastern seaboard.
According to this article in Atlanta Inno, Duncan said the key focus of the partnership is to ensure government supports a wide-ranging group of stakeholders in the state’s innovation ecosystem. That includes start-ups, small businesses, the private sector, health care and others.
Bud Peterson, President Emeritus of the Georgia Institute of Technology, will lead the group as Board Chair along with Debra Lam, Partnership Executive Director. In addition to Peterson and Duncan, there are 13 other high profile individuals on the Board.
A roadmap to guide the group is available in the recommendations from the “Georgia Innovates Taskforce” that Duncan launched earlier this year.
