In “Advancing Arizona,” the Flinn Foundation’s new report, President and CEO Tammy McLeod looks ahead at how the Foundation’s programs can make a difference across Arizona. “Broad improvement in quality of life depends on committing to collaboration within our institutions, across institutions, within sectors and across them, in every corner of our state,” writes McLeod.
And Board Chair David J. Gullen, M.D., looks back at the Flinn tenure of Jack Jewett, who enhanced existing programs in the biosciences, education, and the arts, and introduced a new civic-leadership initiative in partnership with the Thomas R. Brown Foundations of Tucson.
The Milken Institute study of the Technology and Research Initiative Fund shows the more than $1.1 billion in TRIF funding to the state universities since 2001 led to a growth in startups, patents, and license income, the creation of new bioscience institutes, the retention and recruitment of faculty, as well as a growing return on investment.
This brochure provides details of the application process for the 2020 Flinn Foundation Bioscience Entrepreneurship Program, which awards $30,000 through a nonprofit partner to up to six early-stage Arizona bioscience firms each year. The program features a personalized yearlong plan specific to the needs of individual firms, helping them to navigate the challenges facing young companies and empowering them to become investor-ready.
This 8-page brochure illustrates the importance of the robust bioscience ecosystem here in Arizona and how Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap Steering Committee is advancing and accelerating this critical ecosystem. The brochure also highlights the advances made in the state’s bioscience sector during 2018 in areas such as entrepreneurism, venture capital, industry, research, education, and clinical care.
