What Is the Orlando Tech Council?

The Orlando Tech Council consists of entities and companies who will each contribute a $2,500 sponsorship to participate in the council programs, events and oversight that will be available for the community.

All council members must serve in an executive technology or innovation role within their organization (CIO, CTO, etc.). Three seats on the council will be given in-kind each year to members of the community, nominated by the steering committee.
