INNOVATE® Orlando - USA

In these wild times, innovation and hope are more important than ever before, so we here at Global Village Publishing have decided now’s the time for INNOVATE® Orlando Vol. 2!

We’re telling the stories of the companies and individuals who have navigated this challenge and came out on the other side— some shining, some a little wounded, some barely hanging on.

But here’s one thing they have in common: they need a little good news and recognition for what they have done.

That is where we need your help. Please click the red button at the bottom of your screen to nominate the best and most innovative organizations that the Orlando Innovation Ecosystem has to offer. Let’s make sure that they get the recognition they deserve.

What is INNOVATE® Orlando Volume 2?

INNOVATE® Orlando Volume 2 is a curated online experience that…

  1. catalogs Orlando’s innovators and
  2. celebrates the robust ecosystem they’ve formed.

In today’s uncharted waters, innovation and resilience are more important than ever. While this is a time of deep uncertainty, not everything that’s happening is “doom and Zoom.” By telling the stories of Orlando’s innovators and innovation enablers, INNOVATE® Orlando Volume 2 provides a snapshot of the pivots, the reroutes, and the genius moves that will come to define the City Beautiful in 2020 and beyond.

INNOVATE® Orlando Volume 1

Published in 2019, the first volume of INNOVATE® Orlando included innovation mavens like Space Florida, Lockheed Martin, Synapse, Guidewell Florida Blue, Nperspective CFO & Strategic Services, Florida Citrus Sports, University of Central Florida, Burnout Game Ventures, Florida Polytechnic University, Central Florida Foundation, and more. 

Leaders of most of these organizations also contributed original thought leadership pieces. Other thought leaders included Mayor Buddy Dyer, Duncan Wardle, Jim Thomas, David Brim, Clayton Louis Ferrara, Jordan Walker, and others.
