It’s a big week for social entrepreneurship in Orlando. This weekend is the first social entrepreneurship- themed Startup Weekend, and tomorrow the RAISE social enterprise lab opens in the UCF Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership. The lab will help Orlando entrepreneurs- both at UCF and in the broader community- build connections to help them develop and scale their social enterprise businesses.
AgileThought Inc., which designs custom software and mobile applications, opened a downtown Orlando office yesterday afternoon in a ceremony attended by Governor Rick Scott. Governor Scott spoke during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new 2,585 square-foot office in the CNL II building. He used the opportunity to announce the latest job numbers, which show an overall increase in the number of jobs across the state.
