Arizona Commerce Authority  Sept. 17, 2014

The Arizona Commerce Authority in partnership with the Arizona Technology Council has announced the launch of the new blog and digital e-magazine formats of TechConnect: Arizona’s Technology Magazine to showcase Arizona companies, leaders and stories of innovation.

Arizona’s tech leaders have turned to TechConnect since 2005 as a trusted source on what’s happening within the state’s innovation ecosystem. Publishing exclusively online creates a new and wide-reaching platform to showcase the breakthroughs occurring in Arizona, along with compelling stories of the visionaries and innovative companies that are making them possible.

The TechConnect blog will be an ongoing source of news and insights from Arizona leaders who are driving new technology formation and industry advancements in our world. The blog also will provide perspective from experts on timely topics ranging from developments in Arizona’s startup community, to STEM skills in the innovation workforce, to how Arizona fits into the broader national and global technology landscapes.

In the quarterly digital e-mag edition of TechConnect, original content will offer up in-depth features on innovative companies, tech trends affecting Arizona, legislative policy shaping the state’s tech economy, and the latest discoveries from Arizona’s state universities and top research centers.

“Arizona’s vibrant community of global tech giants and early-stage innovators, top-ranked universities, leading research minds, and its creative high-skills workforce has helped the state blossom into a hub of innovation and a magnet for world-class companies,” said Sandra Watson, president and CEO, Arizona Commerce Authority, co-publisher of TechConnect. “TechConnect will help Arizona to share its success stories by highlighting its leaders, dynamic companies, and new ideas that are driving innovation in our state and around the globe.”

“We are proud to extend our strong partnership with the ACA, and the new TechConnect format helps us build upon a foundation that is firmly vested in innovation,” said Steven G. Zylstra, president and CEO of the Arizona Technology Council, and co-publisher of TechConnect. “Together, the blog and e-mag will showcase Arizona’s diverse technology community, and allow us to reach thousands of new readers across Arizona and beyond.”

TechConnect is published in partnership by the Arizona Commerce Authority and Arizona Technology Council. The publishers invite readers to explore TechConnect, and are excited to see it become a go-to source for technology news in Arizona.
