Samson Avetian will explore Armenia’s economic prospects and the indispensable role that technology, sciences, and innovation play within it. He will review the progress made over the years, the current dynamics, and the future outlook for the Armenian technology industry. The Armenian Tech Economy has recently witnessed remarkable growth driven by a burgeoning technology sector and innovative startups, supported by Armenian Angel and VC Investors. Armenia has already attracted established global technology companies including Microsoft, Cisco, VMware, Nvidea, and Synopsys.  According to the Global Startup Ecosystem Report by StartupBlink, Armenia has secured the leading position for technology innovation for the Caucasus region.  Armenian tech startups are making their mark on the global stage, attracting millions of dollars in investments and total investment volume reached an impressive $47 million in total in 2023.  Armenia is earning recognition as a new technology and AI development hub and was selected to host the WCIT 2024 World Congress on Innovation and Technology on October 4-7 in Yerevan, with a focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its societal impact, ethics, and future under the headline “The power of mind: AI Beyond Limits, Within Ethics.”
