Staying Connected

by Don Rodriguez

AZTechBase, a new platform unveiled by Arizona Technology Council, originally was designed to provide information about who we are as an industry. The timing couldn’t be better for this tool to help bring together our burgeoning technology ecosystem. 

The Council partnered with the Arizona Commerce Authority and IT services firm AccountabilIT to launch AZTechBase, an online database of tech companies, people and investors with a presence here. The platform actually illustrates the great progress the state has made in becoming one of the nation’s top technology hubs.

The goal of AZTechBase is to further elevate Arizona’s technology ecosystem by providing accurate, current datasets and making the data easily accessible to the community. Currently, there are nearly 2,900 Arizona-based companies on the platform, which represents about a third of the state’s existing tech firms.

More importantly now, the platform helps support communication and interaction that has been limited by social distancing mandates in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. AZTechBase provides a virtual environment for technology leaders, businesses, investors, talent and economic development organizations to safely monitor the technology ecosystem, as well as collaborate and continue moving the industry forward.

AZTechBase provides a substantial benefit to Arizona’s economic development organizations as they recruit companies from out of state, as well as to companies in state searching for resources to start up or grow.

Everyone has basic access to AZTechBase and can receive a premium membership through the Council — all at no charge. To take a test drive, go to

Premium membership provides users with additional accessibility, search functionality and customization options. This membership’s benefits include access to:

  • A user-friendly dashboard to analyze high-level trends and gain insights by aggregating recent financing, acquisitions, average revenue and employee growth;
  • Filters and a data export option to create customized reports by sector on revenue, size, years in business, growth and more; and
  • Ability to discover, view and connect with emerging startups, established technology companies, people and investors.

The platform also plays a critical role in organizing data and industry insights gathered through the Council’s quarterly Arizona Technology Industry Impact Report to track the progress of companies, attract talent, and discover and connect with new companies and people. This quarterly report provides an update on several vital datasets, including technology career wages, number of technology jobs, venture capital, new technology companies/startups and Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards.
