Also resolute is the Council’s dedication to facilitating and funding initiatives that support and advance STEM education for students in Arizona, across the country and around the world. By inspiring and encouraging students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, we’re continuing to advance the agenda of education for a highly skilled workforce.
Empowering Arizona’s technology community does not happen without a multitude of great minds coming together and playing a pivotal role. Led by a visionary board of directors and in collaboration with dedicated community partners, the Arizona Technology Council continues its mission of accelerating the innovation and entrepreneurial mindset already present in Arizona’s expanding innovation ecosystem.
In our 2019 Annual Report, The Future of Tech in AZ, we highlight the impact the Council and SciTech Institute had across legislation, education, job training, health care and the community.

The Council will continue to support its members and Arizona at large. To us, it’s more than doing what’s expected. We know the future is counting on us.
