Advancing Georgia as the Tech Capital of the East Coast

Helping Communities Seize Opportunities to Create Change

In 2020, Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan instituted the taskforce that would become the Partnership for Inclusive Innovation to lead coordinated, statewide efforts to establish Georgia as a living laboratory by uncovering and uplifting innovators.

Under the leadership of state of Georgia, Board Chair G.P. Bud Peterson and Executive Director Debra Lam, the organization guides efforts and pilot programs to help foster access, growth, entrepreneurship and innovation throughout the state, with the ultimate goal of achieving inclusive innovation throughout Georgia.
