See how millennials are contributing to this Orlando tech firm’s rapid growth


A tech firm with connections to San Francisco plans to double its workforce in Orlando, and given its relation to another big local company, that may be just the start of its rapid growth.

Orlando-based Kore Inc., which specializes in mobile messaging platforms for the workplace and minimizes the need for emails, plans to add at least 75 jobs at its Orlando headquarters next year. The company, which has a location in San Francisco, is growing rapidly in Florida.

The firm, which grew from 20 to 250 employees within a year, may grow substantially more over time if it’s anything like its parent company, Orlando-based Kony Inc.
