Armenia is full of people who are highly educated. The Armenian people are very smart and equipped with the right skills that can create a high level of innovation and technology. They are so skilled that they can transform Armenia into a technology hub in the region.
Software and other IT services have already been exported by Armenia to various parts of the world and this is not surprising anymore given the fact that Armenia is well known to be the hub for research and technology development in the past.
It can be a bit surprising however that even though Armenia can give 3G access to almost all parts of the nation, less than 50% of Armenian people actually pay attention to this. Most are not even aware that they could market a lot of software to various parts of the world in a more aggressive manner, so marketing is something that should improve. If this aspect can be improved, Armenia will truly be on its way to become a technology hub.
Some ideas to market Armenia's technology:
Increase the level of English of those IT people
Lobby at big companies to introduce Armenia as a hub for lower cost of delivering IT & software tasks.
Organize IT fairs in country and join all fairs in the West
Create an institution to market country's young IT skills

One interesting event that took place last years was ArmTech'15 Congress, the 8th Global Armenian High Tech Business Conference, under the high patronage of the Prime Minister of Armenia. ArmTech is aimed at further expanding the frontiers of Armenian high-tech industry promotion and attracting new participants and prominent representatives of the global technology community.
