Tech Parks Arizona in Business Facilities

Business Facilities released their most recent issue, the 16th Annual Rankings Report which configures Business Facilities' rankings, categories and criteria to measure the state with the most business location appeal. Arizona is moving up the ladder based on several factors. Tucson has been repeatedly reported as a city with promise when it comes to recovering after the pandemic. With its entrepreneurial culture of thriving development, it only makes sense why the city of Tucson has made Business Facilities’ top ranked “Startup Ecosystems” list. Tech Parks Arizona is also featured in this issue with an article showing the strategic advantage of locating at a University of Arizona Tech Park. This premier research park provides numerous amenities, strategic location, ample space and endless access to a talent pipeline of intelligence and research expertise found at the University of Arizona.
