Breezing, GT Medical Technologies, Life365, and Resonea are finalists for the Fall Arizona Innovation Challenge.
The Arizona Commerce Authority awards $3 million every year to the most innovative companies. It’s the most money in the country for a technology challenge—$1.5 million in the spring; $1.5 million in the fall.
At the end of each Challenge, six companies are each awarded up to $250,000 to help them advance from startup-up or early stage status to the next level. These investments represent non-dilutive capital and will be provided to the winning companies as they attain certain business milestones during a 12-month period.
