UCF Joust competition names four Orlando tech firms as finalists


Orlando has dozens of small tech firms, each working on an innovative product or service. While some of them fizzle out due to an idea that won’t work or a lack of funding, there are some that show enough promise to earn a bit more support from local investors to keep going.

The University of Central Florida’s Joust competition helps define which of those firms should have the best chance to grow. And right now, the school has picked four local tech startups that show the most promise.
