UACI 20th Year Anniversary
Twenty years ago, Tech Parks Arizona took a bold step in building an incubator to support startups in Southern Arizona, establishing the University of Arizona Center for Innovation (UACI). Tech Parks Arizona has utilized its network and facilities to provide an effective support mechanism for new entrepreneurial activities that advance technology innovation locally and globally.
The mission to grow scalable science and technology startup ventures that fuel the Arizona economy has been accomplished many times over. Since 2003, through its support of over 235 businesses and entrepreneurs, UACI startups have raised more than $105.8 million to empower ideas that have led to successful enterprises, spin-off businesses and good-paying local jobs.
