Interactive Ground – Where Business, University and Community Connect
As part of Tech Launch Arizona, Tech Parks Arizona oversees three University of Arizona initiatives:
UA Tech Park, one of the nation's premier research parks, where emerging companies and tech giants work side by side;
UA Tech Park at The Bridges, a development-ready, mixed-use property that will be home to technology companies, a science/tech high school, recreational facilities, retail and residences;
Arizona Center for Innovation, a startup and new venture incubator housed at the UA Tech Park providing the facilities, services and expertise it takes for businesses to develop their ideas, inventions and next evolution of product.
Tech Parks Arizona was founded in 1994 as the UA Office of Economic Development when the University acquired an industrial park and transformed it into a university research park to help commercialize its technologies and intellectual property and foster regional economic development.
Today, Tech Parks Arizona is an ecosystem of dynamic, interactive ground advancing innovation and technology. It offers new and established businesses high-tech office spaces, world-class research and development space, production and warehouse facilities, wet labs, dry labs, clean labs and a wide array of equipment comprised in 1,345 acres and 2 million square feet of developed space.
The UA Tech Park is home to 40+ companies employing nearly 6,500 people. Its activities drive more than $2.3 billion in economic impact for Pima County and generate an estimated $105.6 million in tax revenues for state, county and city governments.
With the build out of The Bridges, Tech Parks Arizona will encompass some 65 acres and more than 3 million square feet of developed space dedicated to technology, commercialization, innovation and a greater quality of life for regional residents and people around the world.
