Partnering with California Investors and Research Institutions
The ASU California Center is a university-wide initiative to connect with prospective students in the Los Angeles area, offer enhanced academic and internship experiences for current ASU students, engage with alumni, and strengthen connections between ASU’s entrepreneurial faculty and the critically important Southern California innovation ecosystem.
AzTE has long cultivated relationships with investors, technology firms and potential partners in California. The ASU California Center is part of that long-term strategy and investment to expand the university’s entrepreneurship networks beyond Arizona, providing unique opportunities for ASU’s faculty and student entrepreneurs.
ASU has some of the most innovative and productive faculty members anywhere in the world. By establishing a physical location in Southern California, we are ensuring ASU’s researchers are more than just visitors in the local innovation community.
Going forward, the Santa Monica office will further increase ASU’s visibility among key stakeholders in this important market and serve as a launching pad for a wide range of new entrepreneurial partnerships, programs and events.
