Digital startups are ten times easier to create than traditional brick-and-mortar startups. They are also significantly less expensive to start since the bulk of their infrastructure is in the cloud, and support staff is available as needed online. Consequently, the digital economy offers a unique opportunity to mass-produce jobs and startup businesses. In February 2020, Jobenomics launched Jobenomics Digital Florida to mass-produce startup businesses in the digital domain across the Sunshine State with ten Jobenomics Digital Academy & Business Generator Campuses and Centers.
Affordable Jobenomics Digital Academy & Business Generator Centers can generate well-paying digital careers in every city, town, community, or neighborhood that wants to prioritize locally owned business creation. Since only one-third of the U.S. workforce has the digital skills to succeed in the digital domain, the need is great.
The Jobenomics Digital Academy & Business Generator Program focuses on digital literacy, certified skills-based training, pathways to entry-level employment in the digital domain, and startup digital technology-related businesses. Each Jobenomics Digital Academy & Business Generator consists of a combined entrepreneurial and enterprise center to exploit career and business opportunities afforded by the dramatic rise in the digital economy.
Jobenomics Digital Academy & Business Generator Program focuses on digital literacy, certified skills-based training, pathways to entry-level employment in the digital domain, and startup digital technology-related businesses. As the name implies, a Digital Academy & Business Generator consists of a Digital Academy and a Business Generator. The Digital Academy attracts, assesses, coaches, trains, and certifies candidates in the digital domain. The Business Generator uses the Jobenomics Community-Based Business Generator process to mass-produce startup firms (e.g., around one hundred new nonemployer firms and micro-businesses per month).
In February 2022, in partnership with SiFi Networks, Jobenomics launched Jobenomics Digital Florida to mass-produce startup businesses via the Jobenomics Digital Academy & Business Generators in ten Florida Federally Designated Opportunity Zones. The main goal is to create a magnet that will generate and attract top talent to build digital communities in the Sunshine State. Jobenomics Digital Florida will provide career and business development pathways for students (of all ages) interested in the digital economy, creating the vast majority of new startups and careers. The
Jobenomics Digital Florida program is synergistic with Governor DeSantis’ recent economic and workforce initiatives, including the Reemployment Assistance program, the Reimagining Education and Career Help (REACH) Act, Florida Job Growth Grant Fund, Return to Work Initiative, and the new Florida Digital Service to deliver better government services and transparency to Floridians through design and technology. Jobenomics Digital Florida will be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that will be the private sector interface of a public-private partnership. Jobenomics Digital Florida will manage the equitable rollout of ten Jobenomics Digital Academy & Business Generator Centers and Campuses across the state’s Federally Designated Opportunity Zones. Numerous officials, including Senator Rubio, are supporting this initiative.
Jobenomics Digital Florida seeks $100 million in federal infrastructure funding to develop ten Jobenomics Digital Academy & Business Generator Campuses and Centers in Florida Opportunity Zones that can create around 12,000 startups annually statewide. Revenue generated by the Digital Academy & Business Generator Campuses and Centers will be able to sustain private sector operations within a year or two of implementation. A percentage of profits from these operations will fund the expansion of new Centers in the remaining 417 Qualified Opportunity Zones in the Sunshine State.

Leading International Grassroots Movement for Business Partners With The Lab Orlando for Digital Academy and Business Generator
A statewide initiative designed to drive economic growth in underserved communities.
(ORLANDO, FL) 22 February 2022 – Jobenomics, a leading international grassroots movement specializing in mass-producing startup businesses and sustainable jobs in underserved and under-resourced communities, announced its partnership with business and community resource hub, The Lab Orlando, for the Jobenomics Digital Florida Digital Academy and Business Generator. This statewide initiative provides career and business development pathways for students of all ages interested in the digital economy, creating the vast majority of new startups and careers.
“Jobenomics designed each Center to mass-produce a minimum of 100 startup businesses per month or 1,200 new firms per year, and ten generators would produce 12,000 startups annually statewide. By combining lessons learned from Jobenomics’ experience in launching an entrepreneur club in Atlanta (as well as hundreds of other startup businesses), we selected The Lab Orlando to help develop and lead a Jobenomics Digital Florida initiative,” said Chuck Vollmer, Founder of Jobenomics.
“(Lab Orlando) founders Julianna Ormond and RC Williams are uniquely qualified to lead the Jobenomics Digital Florida initiative based on their extensive experience, compassion, and drive to help, as evidenced by the creation and growth of The Lab Orlando in the Parramore District.”
Opened in March 2020, The Lab Orlando thrived through the COVID pandemic, providing solutions to the “last mile” problems of opportunity deserts in underserved communities and helping businesses launch and scale. Lab Orlando was featured by Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), co-author of the Qualified Opportunity Zone legislation, as well as the White House Office on Domestic Policy and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”).
“The Jobenomics Digital Florida program is synergistic with recent economic and workforce initiatives from Governor DeSantis, including the Reemployment Assistance program, the Reimagining Education and Career Help (REACH) Act, Florida Job Growth Grant Fund, Return to Work Initiative, and the new Florida Digital Service to deliver better government services and transparency to Floridians through design and technology,” said Lab Orlando co-founder Julianna Ormond. “Our partnership with Jobenomics provides ready-to-go, plug-and-play access to move the needle right now. We’re beyond excited!”
Ten sites in Qualified Opportunity zones throughout the state have been targeted, including an enhancement of the flagship Lab Orlando location. A typical Center will consist of a state-of-the-art 10,000 to 20,000 square foot facility on a 1- to 2-acre site, with expansion plans for 2 to 30-acre campuses including a 20,000 to 40,000 square foot center, Digital Laboratories, Digital Live-Work Communities, and Open Access Centers that will provide city-wide ultra-high-speed internet access.
“We have a real shot at solving the opportunity desert challenge and creating an explosion of businesses with NFT, Smart Chain, and other technologies, empowered by our partners at Sherloc,” said Lab Orlando co-founder RC Williams. “It’s time to put our foot on the gas when it comes to solving these last-mile problems.”
Ormond and Williams are planning an informational session to provide additional details on the rollout of the Jobenomics Digital Florida Program in early March. They are currently working with legislators and other stakeholders on timelines for rollouts.
