Message from the CEO
In the wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Arizona Technology Council is committed to the health and well-being of its valued members, partners, board of directors, staff and the tech ecosystem we serve.
WE’RE HERE FOR YOU
Although we are now working remotely, the Council’s team is more dedicated than ever to supporting the development, growth and advancement of science- and technology-driven companies in Arizona, fostering a climate of creativity and community for its members, and strengthening the state as an innovation hub.
As a non-profit organization, the Council also is one of many Arizona small businesses just like yours that’s facing some of its greatest challenges. As we navigate through these turbulent times, you can count on us to continue to:
- advocate for state and federal policies that enhance Arizona’s technology sector;
- deliver relevant reports and new data on Arizona’s tech industry and job growth;
- offer comprehensive health care and 401(k) programs; and
- accelerate the innovative and entrepreneurial mindset in our growing startup ecosystem.
STAY CONNECTED AND PLUGGED IN
In addition to weekly updates, virtual events and tech-focused webinars, we’re working behind the scenes to provide meaningful content, member updates and industry news for you to stay connected to Arizona’s tech sector and community.

WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER
While we cannot predict what tomorrow brings, we are honored to work with each of our members, partners and board of directors in creating Arizona as a destination for technology companies to be, thrive and stay. It should go without saying that we are all connected and interdependent; the virus proves just how true that is. This difficult episode teaches us the importance of creative and collaborative solutions. In short, we need each other, and crises often remind us of that.
