1 Creating and Entrepreneurial Eco-System in Southern Arizona Bruce A. Wright The University of Arizona EDA Regional Training Conference 2012

2 Arizona – Coming to the Game Late No State strategy for technology innovation, commercialization or entrepreneurship Lack of Legislative support for tech commercialization State Universities lacked a effective tech transfer process Limited venture capital in the state Only one business incubator in the state Start-up leaving state to find executive teams and funding

3 Adopting a Strategy Conduct statewide assessment of strengths and weakness – Flinn Foundation and Battelle Institute Build on the research strengths (core competencies)of the Universities and Research Center Develop a regional strategies/blueprints/roadmaps Target efforts toward key industries – aerospace and defense, bioscience, optics, renewable energy

4 Meeting the Challenge Adoption of a Statewide and Regional Bioscience Roadmaps Reform of UA and ASU Tech Transfer Systems – UA Tech Launch and Technopolis Expansion of Research Parks – ASU Research Park, UA Tech Park, Phoenix Bio District, UA Bio Park

5 Meeting the Challenge Establishment of university based Incubators – Technopolis at ASU, NACET at North Arizona Univ. and Arizona Center for Innovation at UA Focused Research Centers – T-Gen in Phoenix, Critical Paths Institute and Bio 5 in Tucson Reorganization of the Arizona Department of Commerce – establishment of Arizona Commerce Authority and for start-up companies

6 Southern Arizona Response Multi-dimension approach – Entrepreneurship recruitment and training – Technology commercialization – Business start-up – Capital creation – Market expansion Engaging the key players – industry, university, private sector – Bioscience Leadership Council of Southern Arizona

7 The Biosciences in Southern Arizona Oro Valley is rapidly emerging as a regional biotech center with major new and expanding facilities – Roche / Ventana Medical Systems, Sanofi, and UAs BIO5 - Oro Valley

8 The Biosciences in Southern Arizona University of Arizona, home of the BIO5 Institute, Health Sciences Center, Biosphere 2, and Tech/Bio Parks, has spun out >30 companies since 2005
