Tech Association Builds Momentum with Problem-Solving Initiative

As part of its expanded mission to engage the seven-county region of Central Florida, the Orlando Regional Tech Association recently began an initiative called Momentum 2018, a platform of civic problem-solving bringing together creative thinkers from Orlando’s nonprofit, business and tech communities. The objective was to use technology as a conduit to purposeful and powerful community engagement and advancement.

The organization invited tech executives, developers, designers, marketers, instructional designers, HR directors, accountants, sales leaders, customer service representatives and other professionals to join in the initiative. These local creative thinkers joined forces to tackle real-world challenges and design breakthrough solutions for nonprofit organizations in Central Florida. Leaders asked the organizations to think big and describe the outcome they would want to see if they had the technical expertise already on staff.

Teams built customized solutions for the presented challenges, presenting them to a community audience at the end of the exercise. The participants were united by a shared interest in seeing the region thrive as a major destination both for tech-focused companies, from startup to enterprise, that are ready to grow and expand in Central Florida and for the skilled technology and creative teams driving their success, said Jim Thomas, the association’s CEO.
