The City of Orlando has been funding the Orlando Technology Community Support Program via the Orlando Economic Partnership (Website) since 2018.

The program provides matching grants in the amount of $5,000-$10,000 to help develop tech-focused events that combine community and the local “tech workforce” in the Orlando region, with a total of $65,000 up for grabs.

Qualifying pitches must include the four key goals of the initiative:

  • Building the tech talent pipeline
  • Catalyzing private capital investments
  • Increasing connection and collaboration among start-up and existing tech companies
  • Increasing Orlando’s reputation as a tech hub

Applications for the 2021-2022 fiscal year are expected to open in November 2021, with awards being recommended in February 2022.
