Connecting, empowering, and engaging tech companies across the state of Arizona.
The Arizona Techology Council, the SciTech Institute’s parent organization, was established in 2002 after the Arizona High Tech Industry Cluster merged with the Arizona Software & Industry Association. It has since grown to over 800 members and counting, representing a diverse community of science and technology companies, professional service vendors, academic organizations, and non-profit entities. With offices in Phoenix and Tucson, the Council provides tremendous value to technology companies and offers business networking in Phoenix, Tucson and Northern Arizona.
