UA’s Arizona Forge set to become crucible for Tucson startups

The University of Arizona’s nascent Arizona Forge has been called a business incubator, but it will be much more than that when it opens in February at the historic Roy Place Building downtown.

The building at 44 N. Stone Ave. — formally known as the Arizona Forge Business Innovation Hub — will serve as a nexus between UA students and faculty, startup founders and corporate innovators, fronted by the nonprofit entrepreneurship group Startup Tucson.
