Orlando is home to Lake Nona, a 44-square kilometer community built for the future and an ideal location for cutting-edge companies across a wide-range of industries including aerospace, healthcare technology, life sciences, medical research, cyber security and more.
Lake Nona was created by the Tavistock Group, an international private investment organization. Their vision has built a community of entrepreneurialism, collaboration and innovation, with individual hubs devoted to health, well-being, human performance, business and education.
The community has been thoughtfully designed to help residents live their happiest, healthiest life by providing holistic opportunities for engagement, entrepreneurship, and energy. From nature trails and healthcare to coworking spaces and shopping, there are so many ways to enrich your life here.
Contiguous to Orlando International Airport, this Aerotropolis provides businesses and residents close proximity to Florida’s busiest airport with direct connections to more than 150 cities around the globe. Soon, Lake Nona will also boast the nation’s first vertiport, providing regional travel aboard electric Vertical Take Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Locally, autonomous shuttles whisk passengers throughout Lake Nona, connecting the many office, medical, dining and entertainment districts located in the community.
Perhaps one of the most appealing aspects of Lake Nona is the highly educated population that calls it and its surrounding areas home. These tech-forward early adopters make up the workforce of the industry leading businesses located here, including SIMCOM, BBA Aviation, Johnson & Johnson, KPMG, Lilium, Verizon, View Glass, the U.S. Tennis Association and more.
You don’t have to look far for the next generation of innovators either. From preschool to medical school, Lake Nona is the education hub for more than 15,000 students and some of the nation’s most forward thinking learning institutions. And with more than 500,000 college students within a 100-mile radius, Lake Nona businesses have access to a deep talent pool.
Lake Nona benefits greatly from Florida’s welcoming business climate, with a low corporate income tax and no state property tax.
While Lake Nona looks toward the future, we’re open for business now. With robust transportation infrastructure, an educated workforce, a low cost of living combined with a high standard of living, we’re partnering with businesses to create a destination where tomorrow’s innovations are happening today.
