Economic development group to create Orlando Tech Council

Orlando Economic Partnership — the area’s public/private economic development organization — plans to launch the Orlando Tech Council with hopes of streamlining efforts to grow Orlando’s $12 billion tech industry. 

The purposes of the group will be to centralize information and messaging for the Orlando tech community to attract other tech businesses to the region and create a way for small and large tech companies to communicate, Orlando Economic Partnership Vice President of Innovation Sheena Fowler told Orlando Business Journal. The council, which will consist of private companies, tech resource organizations and public partners, seeks sponsorships from local companies to help fund the group. Read more here.
