This research project came about in response to the need for an additional sector of the Cayman Islands’ economy, which became apparent when the pandemic haltered tourism, resulting in a loss of approximately 25% of the CI gross domestic product.
Preliminary research suggests that fostering an innovation ecosystem and cultivating the tech industry in the Cayman Islands could provide an additional buttress to the economy that would mesh well with the existing mainstays: the finance, tourism, healthcare, and real estate develop industries.
The authors would therefore like to provide insights to businesses and individuals regarding the advantages, challenges, and potential solutions involved with cultivating a tech sector of the economy.
