Launch to Tomorrow: Advancing Broad-based Prosperity in the Region

In the summer of 2018, the Orlando Economic Partnership (the Partnership) led a collective effort, engaging leadership, staff and stakeholders in the development of a strategic framework for the region’s future. The result was Launch to Tomorrow, an ambitious three-year plan to re-cast economic development to advance broad-based prosperity for the region. 
 
We define broad-based prosperity as a region whose residents live a meaningful life in a place where equal access to resources and pathways to success allows opportunities for all. Our goal is to create a region bound only by our imaginations.

Fueling Orlando’s Opportunity Economy by Conquering Shared Challenges

The Orlando region comprises 95 cities and towns in seven counties, each with its own unique challenges and opportunities. The Partnership works toward finding regional solutions that address our shared current and emerging challenges.
  • Preparing for our growing and diversifying population
  • Changing perceptions to align with our diverse economy
  • Keeping pace with technological advances
  • Readying, recruiting and retaining a talented workforce
  • Enabling improved mobility and connectivity
  • Ensuring that opportunities are available to all through broad-based prosperity
Who We Are
The Orlando Economic Partnership is a public-private, not-for-profit economic and community development organization. The Partnership represents seven counties in Central Florida, including the City of Orlando, and hundreds of the region’s top private businesses.
 
What We Do
Through the power of our partnerships, we strengthen our regional assets and businesses, advocate for regional priorities and write the next chapter of Orlando’s story. We are injecting fresh resources and perspectives while harnessing the strength of the region’s culture of collaboration and innovation to create a new future for our diverse and growing population. 
 
What We Believe
The Partnership is altering the perceptions of a region best known for tourism by reconceptualizing its economic future. We are leading the creation of a new model for economic and community development that challenges the status-quo and establishes a new path toward broad-based prosperity.

A Bold Vision for the Future

We are prepared for, and dedicated to, shaping tomorrow.

The spirit of innovation through technology propels Orlando forward. When developing the Launch to Tomorrow, we identified five foundational objectives as the focus of our three-year mission. These key objectives will serve to improve our region’s competitiveness while responding to the needs of our communities, residents and businesses.
