In spring of 2009 the cover of the inaugural edition of BizTucson emblazed our motto: Why the World is Watching Tucson.
Twenty issues later we’re still bringing you articles and profiles on world-class businesses right here in Southern Arizona. We reported on major players like Raytheon Missile Systems, Ventana Medical Systems and The University of Arizona – and little startups gone big like Buffalo Exchange consignment stores, language interpretation firm CyraCom International and electro-optics pioneer Arete Associates. We’ve taken you behind the science at CAID Industries specialty manufacturing and Syncardia, perfecting the artificial heart.
BizTucson has featured global visionaries, inventors, entrepreneurs and local legends. We’ve covered longtime business sectors like agriculture, healthcare, education, the military, tourism and the arts, as well as nonprofits and the big-hearted generosity of this city’s individuals and businesses alike.
Our community is unique in the world. We’re proud of its many facets. And we intend to bring you more fascinating reports in the years ahead.
