With a rapidly developing economy, Georgia is considered to be a center for entrepreneurs and developers. “Because of our own first-hand insight into the business, IT, and FinTech climate in Georgia, we decided to host Alt Convention. The legislative and banking climate, and growth opportunities in this emerging market are staggering,” said David Ruebush, CEO, Global Bitbillions Group Incorporated.
