TechConnectThe Arizona Technology Council has partnered with the Arizona Commerce Authority to launch new blog and digital e-magazine formats of TechConnect: Arizona’s Technology Magazine.

Arizona’s tech leaders have turned to TechConnect as a trusted source on what’s happening within the state’s innovation ecosystem since the Council launched it as a print publication in 2005. 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.

“Arizona’s vibrant community of global tech giants and early-stage innovators, top-ranked universities, leading research minds, and its creative high-skills work force have helped the state blossom into a hub of innovation and a magnet for world-class companies,” says co-publisher Sandra Watson. “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.”

Watson is president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority, the state’s leading economic development organization with a streamlined mission to grow and strengthen the state’s economy.

“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,” says co-publisher Steven G. Zylstra, president and CEO of the Arizona Technology Council.

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 science, technology, engineering and math (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 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.
