Yes this is private sector business but the private sectors of California, and NY etc. are the ones benefiting from importing Georgia talent. Georgia's best tech startups typically leave, and there's no saying what amazing ideas never make it off the ground for the lack of initial investment. It would be silly for the state not to lay some groundwork for the success of this new industry.
Executed correctly, the state's 100mm investment will make money for the state and create jobs. The question is, can Georgia execute or will it turn out to be a buddy buddy cash give away.
