How can Arizona Collaboratory help me?
We connect you with experts who have walked this pathway before. Securing Capital and Growing a Business to its Ultimate Potential is a journey. A detailed approach to Funding Preparedness is vital if you want capital. Some companies need more targeted marketing or partnership strategies, some companies have management gaps that investors believe stack the deck against your long-term success (they aren’t always right, but that can red flag your capital ask), and some companies aren’t quite sure what is needed to grow.
Growth typically requires money. Financial capital comes in many forms including: investor capital, banking relationships, alternative finance, and improved cash flow among others.
The Arizona Collaboratory can help you find out if your business is ready for an infusion of new financial capital.
Great Companies Thrive with Great People
Emerging growth companies are the FUTURE of Arizona. You create the jobs. You grow sales and create markets. Your success is more important than you think.

Reach the resources you need now. Social capital facilitates growth by opening up a network to new markets (geographic and industry), new partners (vendor, distribution, sales networks), and new customers. AzC’s network of advisors engages and connects in ways that expand your social capital. General solicitation marketing of your deal often matches an emerging growth company with new partners, as an added bonus. Social Gatherings, with targeted Advisor experts and matched companies in “search of,” are held quarterly to provide opportunities to both learn more about a subject matter as well as meet experts before you need to hire them.
The process and what to expect. Arizona Collaboratory provides a free online assessment tool to quickly discover your resource needs and then matches those identified needs with resources available to address them. Your company will be provided with a list of Advisors or other resources that can help grow your company. You will select from the list the Advisors who you want to work with. If you are a candidate for funding, Arizona Collaboratory will provide you with a list of Advisors that can assess your funding readiness and help prepare you for a capital raise.
