T4S is a loud and vocal supporter of the Orlando Tech community. Last month’s Tech Week was a great opportunity for our members to enjoy a week-long celebration of startups & technology. Our members had a great time participating on the various events that were taking place.
Among the activities were the Orlando Tech Tour which offered a behind the scenes look at local tech companies, the Orlando Tech Meetup and the Future of Orlando conference that highlights the latest trends. Our sponsor, Informulate also sponsored the Lean Startup Orlando meetup where 70 people crammed together to listen to Laura Klein, Lean UX Guru who web conferenced in from San Francisco. Read about it here.
Special mention to local Tech Accelerator Venture ScaleUp, who had their 1 year anniversary during Tech Week. Our founder, Rajiv Menon, is a mentor to the current cohort of starters graduating from the accelerator this month. VSU was founded by Dennis Pape and hosted at the coworking space, Catalyst. It is focused on identifying, nurturing, and accelerating high-growth entrepreneurs by connecting high-growth entrepreneurs to mentors that have built and exited startups that have scaled and has won a Small Business Administration Growth Accelerator Fund Award – 1 of only 3 in Florida and 80 nationwide.
The Orlando Startup & Tech scene has come a long way, and we look forward to contributing as much as we possibly can to its growth and maturity!
