To commemorate our 10th anniversary, Tech Launch Arizona engaged with local business magazine BizTucson to create a special section dedicated to stories about the history of TLA, the evolution of commercializing the inventions born of University of Arizona research and innovation, and the growing impact that this work is having on the university, our community, and our state.
Special thanks to all our advertisers who helped make this happen.
"In the not-so-distant past, ground-breaking research conducted on the University of Arizona campus more often than not was destined for one place – academic journals.
"But since 2012, Tech Launch Arizona has pushed open the door to move life-changing technology and inventions on a path to the consumer market. It’s a turnaround in attitude and operation at UArizona which has resulted in benefits for multiple constituents – for consumers, for the university, for the researchers who devote their lives to their work, and for society."
