Creating Economic Opportunity for Arizonans

Dear Friend,

This week we commemorated Startup Day Across America, a chance to recognize the important role startups and entrepreneurs play in our economy.

Arizona is a great place to start a business. Through our Kyrsten Means Business program, we visit innovative startups that are creating good-paying jobs for Arizonans. At each visit, we hear from entrepreneurs about what they need to successfully create and innovate. We incorporated that feedback into Opportunity for Arizona – our plan to create good-paying jobs, strengthen Arizona’s economy, and ensure businesses have every chance to succeed.

Our Opportunity for Arizona plan supports startups by cutting unnecessary red tape and increasing access to capital. Our Helping Angels Lead Our Startups, or HALOS Act, makes it easier for angel investor groups to sponsor “demo days” where startups are able share their ideas with business, academic, and investment communities. These early networking opportunities are critical for startups to get feedback on their business ideas and meet potential future investors.

Opportunity for Arizona also works to build global workforce that meets the needs of the businesses of tomorrow. To do that, we need to support and expand STEM education, technical training, community college, and university funding to ensure Arizonans are equipped with the skills and expertise they need for the changing and increasingly global economy.
