Upcoming countries, like Panama, have to figure out how to become and stay competitive in the future.
The Panama Canal with logistics, a solid financial sector, mining and tourism are already in place and growing. Starting a business is easy to do.
But how about high tech and a way to prepare the younger generation? Panama should seriously consider high-tech initiatives.
Of course, there is no way to copy something like the “Valley”. It has been tried already. But Panama is ideal to become a SECOND HOME & BOOTCAMP FACILITY for SV companies. And a super-affordable springboard for hightech startups anyway.
City of Knowledge, a special economic zone at the banks of the Panama Canal, only 15 minutes from downtown PanamaCity, is the right place to begin with.
Stay tuned how this project goes along.
