Founded in January of 2017 by Pandera, a local data, and technology company with founding roots right here in Orlando. Pandera CEO Joshua Sutton had the vision to build a culture of collaboration and innovation that in return can help create awareness for the growing tech community in Orlando.
What once started as a small meetup has grown into a well-recognized platform for tech startups, professionals, businesses, and investors to connect and collaborate. With an average of 250 monthly attendees and a schedule of educational programs, hackathons, and conferences OTAB has become Orlando’s #1 technology focused community.
We took a solutions approach to OTAB. We identified a need and listened to the customer to fill that void. This meant focusing on the core of what drives a community, it’s people. This allowed us to build OTAB side by side with the people that make up our amazing tech community.
Our focus at OTAB is to help facilitate the needs of our community and the informal leaders that are passionate about its growth. Through OTAB our members are able to get access to and leverage the following:
- Connect with local startups
- Connect with mentors
- Find future employees
- Find future employers
