In 2004 the City of Scottsdale, the ASU Foundation for a New American University and Arizona State University joined forces to create SkySong the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center. A mixed use development located on 43 acres just three miles north of ASU’s Tempe campus, SkySong brings together large companies, entrepreneurs, student entrepreneurs and ASU units in a collaborative environment that supports company growth. ASU SkySong acts as the connector to the university for both SkySong companies and the general business community. SkySong is an economic development driver for South Scottsdale and the university is a key player in the economic development landscape of the Phoenix metropolitan area.
