Blockchain technology has been increasing the security of electronic transactions, and the aim of ZorroSign’s CEO and co-founder, Shamsh Hadi, is to ensure such transactions can stand up in any court of law. The recently announced move of ZorroSign, Inc., a global leader in blockchain-based digital signatures and digital transaction management, to relocate its worldwide headquarters to the Greater Phoenix area strengthens our metropolitan region’s position as a hub for this critical technology.
“We’re very excited to establish our global operations hub in Greater Phoenix,” says Hadi. “The region offers a supportive ecosystem for a rapidly growing tech company like ours — with mechanisms in place at the academic, state and municipal levels — especially through the efforts of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council and the City of Phoenix Community and Economic Development teams, which helped drive our decision to relocate.”
Access to talent from top-ranked universities was one factor in the company’s choice of location, furthering Hadi’s vision to continue to evolve and develop smart, secure — and efficient — solutions to everyday business challenges.
Other factors in ZorroSign’s choice of Phoenix over other markets were its supportive technology ecosystem, pro-business and friendly regulatory environment, and the quality of life and affordability the region affords. ZorroSign will maintain offices in Dubai, UAE; Colombo, Sri Lanka; and Mumbai, India; and will immediately start hiring for sales development and technology roles.
As an initial phase of this move, ZorroSign will set up their global operations hub and headquarters at Grand Canyon University Canyon Ventures Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The company will also establish links with blockchain-related research and development work at both GCU and Arizona State University campuses, while accessing the excellent academic and business-building support that Canyon Ventures offers.
ZorroSign’s digital business platform is built on private, permissioned blockchain technology for maximum privacy and security. As part of ZorroSign’s commitment to corporate citizenship, and understanding of the current economic climate, the company will help Greater Phoenix businesses securely go digital in the new economy by providing companies with a free trial and support services.
