Catalyst Spaces cofounder Dennis R. Pape comments to the Orlando Business Journal's Matthew Richardson. "One expert co-working space owner in the Orlando tech community was not too happy about TechCrunch's data. "This corroborates what those of us following this space have observed," said Dennis Pape, founder of accelerator group VentureScaleUp and downtown Orlando co-working space Catalyst. "Miami, and now Tampa, have eclipsed Orlando in terms of venture capital deals and dollar volume. How have they done this? By building tech ecosystems that foster scalable startups."

Catalyst Spaces cofounder Dennis R. Pape says "Co-working spaces have become the disruptive market for the traditional workspace. I am in favor of having more co-working spaces, and I think it will bring more people to the downtown area. I want to have a lot of non-tech startups in the space. I want to have marketers and other industries here. It creates a level of daily networking."
