Closing The Gaps

Creating a roadmap for success

Arizona is on the cusp of a technological rise. invisionAZ will accelerate the growth of Arizona’s vibrant tech ecosystem by creating, promoting, and leading the framework that allows technology, innovation, and investment to flourish. The blueprint of invisionAZ was developed based on the response from leading tech experts at the 2017 AZ Tech Innovation Summit. We assembled a roadmap of real solutions to address the gaps that currently exist in the Arizona’s tech ecosystem.

Pillar 1: Capital Formation

Local support, local investment, and local management are important key factors for venture capitalists when evaluating the decision to invest significant resources and capital. invisionAZ will create an Arizona “mothership” investment fund to establish a local connection for investment communities.

Pillar 2: Ecosystem

invisionAZ will leverage current resources to encourage collaboration, develop a structure for funding innovation, and will support venture development to encourage a community-driven ecosystem. As an agent for progressive change, invisionAZ will focus on public policy that will ensure the growth of Arizona’s innovation.

Pillar 3: Culture and Connectivity

Recent legislative accomplishments in Arizona have positioned our state as a leader in the new economy. By partnering with business leaders, tech innovators, venture capitalists, and Arizona’s government leaders to create tech-driven events that attract influential leaders from across the country, invisionAZ will craft a culture that supports connectivity, collaboration, and innovation.

AZ Tech Innovation Summit

The 2020 Tech Innovation Summit will showcase Arizona innovation, will feature exciting announcements and will provide attendees with the opportunity to network with entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and other respected innovators.  This year’s Summit will take place on the greens of The Waste Management Phoenix Open, allowing attendees to enjoy some of the best golf from the world famous 18th Hole.
