UCF Business Incubation Program Graduates JourneyLabs from Winter Springs Location
Winter Springs, Fla. (April 5, 2019) – Companies come to the UCF Business Incubation Program to kickstart their idea and set them up for a lifetime of growth. After three years working through the Winter Springs program, JourneyLabs is graduating this month.
The company, which helps clients personalize, automate and scale real-time digital engagement between organizations and people at a reduced cost through their software-as-a-service platform, is graduating with 24 employees, including nine in Florida.
“Our experience at the UCF Business Incubation Program was priceless for our early stage growth period,” says Jason Fisher, CEO, JourneyLabs. “Being a part of the Incubation Program truly installed a foundation for our success.”
During their time, JourneyLabs more than doubled their team to support a growing number of global clients using the cloud and mobile technology to scale gaps of engagement and situational responsiveness. They will be moving its headquarters to Lake Mary, also in Seminole County, Florida and adding additional members to their dynamic team.
“JourneyLabs has had a metamorphosis while working here and our resources allowed the company to determine the best product and market,” says Rafael Caamano, site manager, Winter Springs Incubator. “We’re very excited for their future and continued success.”
