If there’s one thing most people think about when they imagine Augusta, it’s probably hacking their way around the back 9 of an azalea lined course and heading into the clubhouse to enjoy some libations and soak in a beautiful spring day. What they may not realize is the amazing growth the city’s technology sector has seen over the last 5-10 years. The growth of US Army Cyber Command and NSA Georgia at Ft. Gordon, along with the continued expansion of health technologies at Augusta University, and Energy & Environmental Research at Savannah River National Lab have formed the building blocks to merge southern hospitality and collaborative innovation.
