Economic Development

The Town of Oro Valley is where scientific collaboration, technology innovation and business opportunity are surrounded by the stunning Arizona landscape.  Oro Valley is already home to global bioscience, health care, and hi-tech companies many of which are experiencing significant expansions. 
With the ground breaking of a business incubator/accelerator in Innovation Park late 2019, the Town is poised to help launch and grow new life-science-oriented enterprises along with a diverse mix of new engineering and business services. This facility will create a dynamic environment that will include flexible lab and office space and will link to the University of Arizona Innovation Ecosystem via the future Veterinary College in Oro Valley planning to start its first cohort Fall 2020.
