Seedbed of technology flourishes in Guatemala
The Campus Tecnológico in the Guatemalan capital -- The Tec, as it is better known -- was conceived as "a physical space where innovation and technology can find a place to flourish at world-class levels of competitiveness," according to its web site.
The campus is inspired by Silicon Valley, the technology park in California.
So far, the Guatemalan campus is thriving. The Tec's seven-story building, inaugurated in June 2010, is fully occupied by 100 companies in the information technology sector, most of whose personnel are young people.
