The University of Arizona created Tech Launch Arizona (TLA) to advance UA inventions and technologies into intellectual property, licensing opportunities and start-up companies. 

Wheelhouse™ Arizona, a unit of TLA, connects the bright people outside the university with the bright people inside the university to identify novel and meaningful uses for technology, and share ideas, expertise, and passion to bring those technologies to market. 

When we pair the UA’s best scientific minds with the relevant expertise of our network affiliates, we develop clear pathways and strategies to bring the innovations of the UA to the world.
