Investing in innovation in Florida

Investing in innovation

Idle musing, why don’t more big companies do stuff like this?  Looks like some pretty cool stuff happening right here in Florida.

Check out this cool project I ran across based in Jacksonville.  Ignite* Adecco is an incubator/innovation lab project  that is fully funded by the world’s largest staffing firm, Adecco Group.

Here’s how they describe themselves:

We are a division of the Adecco Group formed to embrace and promote a culture of innovation within the company. Ignite* is responsible for identifying and seeding tech product ideas that solve common problems related to the staffing industry. Ignite* is a lean, dynamic group that values forward thinking, creativity, and a passion to change the status quo.

They are moving from a co-working space into new offices, spreading tech knowledge in their community, and hiring staff in Jacksonville.

Ignite* Adecco is seeking an experienced Data Analyst/Scientist to join our fast paced startup incubator. This person will be responsible for analyzing and solving “big data” problems and applying their findings to business solutions.

I also like the looks of, the site where I found this job posting. Here’s my profile over there.

Cool stuff.
