The Arizona Innovation Challenge is Arizona’s leading technology commercialization competition awarding up to $3 million – $1.5 million twice yearly – making it one of the most competitive and largest competitions in the nation.
All AZ Innovation Challange applicants must have or be moving towards commercialization of unique, innovative technology or a scientific solution to a marketplace issue(s) in an industry. Companies may not simply be involved in re-selling or expanding an existing technology. Typically, retail, real estate, or professional services business will not qualify for participation unless their service or product embodies a unique technology solution.
All AZ Innovation Challange companies must be an existing, for-profit corporate entity such as a corporation, limited liability company or a partnership at the time of application. Sole proprietorships are not eligible.
Although the spring round has already begun with the deadline to past that just means that you have more time to work on your application for the fall round.
