The Orlando Technology Community Support Grant Program (the Program) expands the City of Orlando’s continued commitment to creating an environment for entrepreneurship as a critical component of the region’s innovation ecosystem. In collaboration with the Orlando Economic Partnership’s Orlando Tech Council (OTC), the grant program provides funding support for Orlando technology focused activities and programs.
Four key goals provide a framework for the program:
1) Increasing the connection and collaboration among start-up and existing tech companies
2) Building the tech talent pipeline
3) Catalyzing private capital investments
4) Increasing Orlando’s reputation as a tech hub
The Program will provide lump-sum, matching grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 from a total pool of $65,000 to help organizations and companies develop tech focused activities and programs that will unite the tech workforce and community. Partial awards (amounts other than those requested in the application) may be made according to the judges’ determination based on the merit of the application and in consideration of the full portfolio of awards to be given. Concurrent grants cannot be funded.
