Biography: Open contracting is collaborating, communicating and using technology for innovating development - all of which have been a focus of Georg's professional career prior to joining the Open Contracting Partnership where he manages communication and advocacy. At the Inter-American Development Bank, Georg has led the Digital Strategy of the Multilateral Investment Fund focussed on supporting micro, small and medium businesses and entrepreneurs in Latin America. He also co-initiated the organisation's portfolio of projects testing social innovations such as crowdfunding.
