desarrollo, a community initiative that launched in late June, announced the addition of nine new strategic partners. The group of additions includes two Vision Partners, one Inspire Partner, and six Community Partners. The Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Local First Arizona join Infusionsoft as Vision Partners, hand-selected and invested in desarrollo’s vision. Arizona Technology Council is the new Inspire Partner, a program for “select organizations that provide resources or services to our community and inspire entrepreneurship.” The six new Community Partners, individuals and organizations that believe in Arizona’s development, include Flexpak, EventInterface, Game Co-Lab, Mobinnov, Spotlight Software, and The Luther Law Firm.
Founder David Rice told AZTB, “I am so excited to announce this first group of strategic partners, who are supporting desarrollo’s vision. Each one, along with Infusionsoft, have displayed so much passion and dedication to developing Arizona into the premier destination for entrepreneurs. These partners, and others like them, are a major step in the right direction to creating a passionate community of collaboration, growth, education and inspiration.”
desarrollo is focused on developing Arizona into the premiere destination for entrepreneurs. As an incubator, desarrollo will be working on their Phoenix Flight Program, which will provide education, mentorship, workspace, and other resources to build a successful business plan for new startups. The company’s goal, as founder Rice put it, is “to set Arizona on the fast track to becoming THE entrepreneurial-focused ecosystem and do it in less than five years.”
