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 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 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.
