Orlando Makes FastCompany Global Dozen

Posted by on May 30, 2008 at 9:58 am.

On a tip from Greg via Doterati, I just checked out FastCompany’s list of the dozen best cities on the planet for innovation. Only 3 of the cities were in the US, and kudos to Orlando for being one of the few. The full list, in no particular order, included:

  • Beijing
  • Hyderabad
  • Mexico City
  • Kigali
  • Seattle
  • Orlando
  • Calgary
  • Moscow
  • Barcelona
  • Kansas City
  • Dohar
  • Abu Dhabi

They had this to say about Orlando:

“There’s more to Orlando than Mickey. It’s now a hub for two burgeoning industries: interactive games — a lively scene has sprouted around the Electronic Arts studio behind Madden NFL — and biotech. A new medical complex in the Lake Nona area will house a University of Central Florida med school and a branch of the famed Burnham Institute for Medical Research.”

We’ve known this for years about Orlando and multiple spots across the state. It’s nice to see others take notice…
