Introduction

NATA was founded in 2019 with the goal of establishing a key foothold in the American Southwest. Primarily, our mission is developing technology resources in Northern Arizona, with the goal of the organization focused on spreading influence and developing opportunity around the resources and opportunities to build technology companies. The core goal of the founding members is to unite the education communities, government organizations, and various private enterprises underneath a single charter and drive technological development in all of it’s capacities in the region.

Northern Arizona is the Frontier

Northern Arizona has been a high growth region for several decades, bucking national trends for rural regions. As our corridor of Arizona has continued to expand with Flagstaff, Prescott, and the Cottonwood/Sedona area experiencing double digit growth, many areas in technology have lagged behind, in spite of high quality education institutions, as well as many other areas of opportunity. Technology until recently had not been at the forefront for the local population centers. Northern Arizona Technology Alliance is seeking to actively change that and redefine the region as a high opportunity center for startups and large scale organizations alike.
