History Attracting, retaining and growing high tech industry is important to Florida. In 1996, the Florida Legislature established the Florida High Tech Corridor Council (FHTCC) to help develop the workforce to support those industries in the 23-county service areas of the University of Central Florida (UCF) and the University of South Florida (USF). In 2005, the Council welcomed the University of Florida (UF) as a full partner of this unique economic development initiative, merging the strengths of three world-class universities.

he Florida High Tech Corridor Council’s mission is to attract, retain and grow high tech industries and the workforce to support them within the 23-county Florida High Tech Corridor. Located at the center between UCF, USF, and UF, Florida’s High Tech Corridor is easily linked by the Florida Interstate system with only a 90-minute drive between them, providing easy access for all research scientists. partners. Under the auspices of the FHTCC, sponsored research programs are currently underway at UCF and USF. UF joined this effort in January 2005. Each university has a commitment of $2 million for the Matching Grants Research Program each year. Since the inception of the FHTCC, the Matching Grants Research Program has generated more than $133 million in applied research with industries targeted for growth. These industries are: Medical Technologies & Life Sciences; Aviation and Aerospace; Information Technology; Microelectronics and Nanotechnology; Modeling, Simulation and Training; Optics and Photonics and Agritechnology.

Those partnerships have resulted in a strategic approach to high tech economic development that involves matching funds research, workforce development and a marketing program leveraging governmental, academic, economic development organizations and corporate budgets on a regional rather than local basis (www.floridahightech. com). Every year, dozens of companies participate in this unique program that leverages the strengths of the three Corridor universities in the development of commercially-applicable emerging technologies.

Business Start-Ups •

Orlando has a rich support system for business startups. The UCF Technology Incubator for Business is nationally recognized for its efforts and since its inception in 1999, it has incubated a total of 80 companies, which translates to a rate of approximately one company per month over a six year period, including 50 current clients and 14 graduates. Collectively, the incubator’s clients and graduates have created more than 700 jobs with an average salary of $59,000 and have received more than $140 million of investment capital and generate $150 million in revenue each year.

At the University of Central Florida, biomedical researchers are advancing our understanding of human disease and developing innovative methods of treatment. Many are engaged in research on the world’s most prevalent and serious health problems, including cancer and cardiovascular, neurodegenerative and infectious diseases. Entrepreneurship

There is a rapidly growing base of University spin-outs. Below are a just a few examples:

Chlorogen Inc, is a biotechnology company that specializes in the expression of pharmaceutical proteins in the chloroplasts of plants. Through its patented chloroplast transformation technology, Chlorogen is committed to being a world-class producer of beneficial proteins and antibodies for human therapy. Optium Corporation was formed based on technology developed by two faculty members at UCF. This company has grown to a $100 million per year company, capturing a significant share of the optical 4 | Burnham and Orlando BI_Orlando-Updated-FINAL_Print.i4-5 4-5

switching market. Optium is the premier fiber optic sub-system manufacturer of high performance 10 Gb/s (OC-192) transponders. Raydiance, Inc. (formerly Ablation Industries, Inc.), develops Ultra Short Pulse (USP) laser technology for nearly painless medical, surgical, dental and cosmetic applications such as laser “scalpel”, tissue ablation, photodynamic drug therapy, nanomedical applications, laser dentistry and whitening, and tattoo and hair removal. Raydiance, Inc.’s USP technology delivers twice the power with less then 1/100 the size and weight and at half the price or less then competitive USP laser technologies. Rini Technologies, Inc. (RTI) was founded in 2000 to develop an innovative cooling system that would greatly improve the performance of high power solidstate lasers using RTI’s patented Evaporative Spray Cooling (ESC) technology.

H

ome to a variety of cultures, Metro Orlando has over 50 performing arts companies including 21 dance companies, 15 orchestras and 20 theatre companies.

T

he region leads the way in terms of variables such as housing starts; growth in population, employment and resident income; mortgage lending; building permits; new home sales; and home prices. On the strength of those factors, housing availability, affordability and diversity are widely apparent. Homeowners save significantly by living in Metro Orlando.

Housing options and neighborhoods span a broad spectrum, from an urban setting in downtown Orlando to the rolling hills of Lake County. Houses in every description — from onebedroom condos to multiacre estates — are plentiful, largely in thanks to a new construction sector that is one of the nation’s most active. The median real estate appreciation rate for the top 20 metro areas in the United States is 25%, while Orlando’s average appreciation rate is 37%.

Over 95% of the population is employed in the Metro Orlando area, equivalent to that of the national average.

Within the last 10 years, Metro Orlando has grown in total population by 34%. Projections for the next 10 years add another 29% onto its growth. City View at Downtown Orlando

26% of Florida newcomers are international residents and help populate the diverse neighborhoods found in Orange County like the Little Saigon section of Colonialtown or the hip and urban Thornton Park.

Experience American folk art at the Mennello Museum of American Art, which is currently featuring a national exhibition organized by the Smithsonian American Art Institute, of Earl Cunningham’s work.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; Orlando presents something to catch everyone’s eye. The Cornell Fine Arts museum at Rollins College houses more than 6,000 works of art and is only a short walk from The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, which includes the most comprehensive collection of leaded and art glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany.

A focus on family living helped spur residential developments at the edges of downtown. One of them is Baldwin Park, a traditional neighborhood with architecture reminiscent of the pre-1940s era in Central Florida.

Housing & Diversity in Orlando

North Lake Park at Lake Nona

H

ome to a variety of cultures, Metro Orlando has over 50 performing arts companies including 21 dance companies, 15 orchestras and 20 theatre companies.

T

he region leads the way in terms of variables such as housing starts; growth in population, employment and resident income; mortgage lending; building permits; new home sales; and home prices. On the strength of those factors, housing availability, affordability and diversity are widely apparent. Homeowners save significantly by living in Metro Orlando.

Housing options and neighborhoods span a broad spectrum, from an urban setting in downtown Orlando to the rolling hills of Lake County. Houses in every description — from onebedroom condos to multiacre estates — are plentiful, largely in thanks to a new construction sector that is one of the nation’s most active. The median real estate appreciation rate for the top 20 metro areas in the United States is 25%, while Orlando’s average appreciation rate is 37%.

Over 95% of the population is employed in the Metro Orlando area, equivalent to that of the national average.

Within the last 10 years, Metro Orlando has grown in total population by 34%. Projections for the next 10 years add another 29% onto its growth. City View at Downtown Orlando

26% of Florida newcomers are international residents and help populate the diverse neighborhoods found in Orange County like the Little Saigon section of Colonialtown or the hip and urban Thornton Park.

Experience American folk art at the Mennello Museum of American Art, which is currently featuring a national exhibition organized by the Smithsonian American Art Institute, of Earl Cunningham’s work.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; Orlando presents something to catch everyone’s eye. The Cornell Fine Arts museum at Rollins College houses more than 6,000 works of art and is only a short walk from The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, which includes the most comprehensive collection of leaded and art glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany.

A focus on family living helped spur residential developments at the edges of downtown. One of them is Baldwin Park, a traditional neighborhood with architecture reminiscent of the pre-1940s era in Central Florida. With approximately 25,000 residents, Winter Park offers bricked streets, towering oaks, vibrant lakes, Rollins College, art museums and galleries, and two impressive juried art festivals.
