Drive the Innovation

Our core belief at Startup Tucson is that collaboration across the innovation ecosystem is the best way to help entrepreneurs, grow our city's economy, and transform the narrative of our region. We firmly believe that we cannot be all things to all people at all times. We have deep respect for the incredible diversity of entrepreneurial support organizations in our city and we are honored to partner with an incredible group of innovation leaders.  


We have found that having formalized partnerships is the best way to have the greatest impact, achieve our mutual goals, and streamline efforts on both sides.


Whether the partnership includes cross-promotion, referrals, or co-created content and events, we are dedicated to fostering productive and supportive relationships with diverse organizations in the innovation space. We have listed some examples of our current partnership opportunities,  but we would love to explore what a partnership would look like with your organization and how we can help each other succeed and grow.

Starting in the fall of 2019, Startup Tucson is excited to announce that we will be moving into a new downtown Tucson innovation space at the Roy Place building, as a pillar partner of  Forge. The Roy Place facility will include classroom and event spaces that can be utilized by community partners for innovation ecosystem activities. Startup Tucson, as part of our partnership with Forge, will be the primary coordinator of the community innovation spaces. We would be delighted to tell you more about the opportunities this new innovation space can include for organizational partners. 

Forge is an incubator for early-stage startups that are focusing on technology related to sustainability and digital health.  Forge includes workspace for industry partners, UA students, researchers, and faculty, as well as global startups.


This unique public + private + university collaboration is founded upon the core values of community, education, services, common spaces, and mentoring/coaching.
