We Are Orlando Tech

Technology is the Extension of Human Potential


Orlando is a place of dreamers, developers, and doers. A place full of compassion, heart, soul, and purpose.

The Orlando Regional Tech Association, “Orlando Tech,” is dedicated to bringing together the brightest minds in technology with leaders across multiple industries and seven counties to serve our community through collaboration and innovation. We bring together creative corporate, civic, educational and community partners to advocate and foster a united, forward-looking, prosperous Central Florida.

We are focused on three main objectives: Sharing our rich and diverse regional story, connecting technology leaders and companies to a deep talent pool, and building and advocating for our technology community as a vital platform for independents, startups, scaleups, and established enterprise in our region, state, and beyond.

We will achieve this through collaboration and inclusiveness and by actively engaging with Central Florida’s entrepreneurial ventures, thriving technology companies, and the hard-working, creative individuals driving our growth engine.

By partnering with and lifting up our world-leading technology sectors and our rising innovators across Central Florida - from space and aeronautics, hospitality and entertainment, and modeling and simulation; to photonics and nano-engineering, gaming and virtual reality, software and digital media, AI and machine learning – together we are building a thriving innovation hub.

Orlando Tech is committed to growing and “future proofing” our region through aggressive and continual investment in technology and innovation. We embrace the opportunities brought about by global connectivity and proactively closing the digital divide. We will also actively work to ensure that our local economy increases its wealth and shares its prosperity across all our communities.

Our vision is to make Orlando a vibrant model for 21st century growth. As Central Florida continues to grow as a leader in technology and innovation, so will the quality of life improve for residents throughout the region. We support open innovation models, foster co-location, and promote easy interaction among a wide variety of creative workers — from artists to scientists to engineers. Orlando’s tremendous regional technology assets already make us world leaders in innovation, technology commercialization and quality job creation. We are committed to strengthening connections across our many sectors and verticals — bringing together everything they’ll need to thrive right here, right now.

Join with us on this journey to become that great community of tomorrow.
