This month the City of Surprise in Arizona won the Excellence in Innovation Award by Westmarc for their AZ TechCelerator Global Concierge Services Program. And Argentina's healthcare innovator played a key role.
The Excellence in Innovation Award was developed to recognize individuals, organizations, businesses, facilities or programs which have demonstrated an innovative concept to accomplish one of the following: fulfills a need for West Valley (Phoenix) residents, preserves the West Valley’s assets or resources and creates an economic benefit for the West Valley. The winner? City of Surprise, with an assist from Meditar.
The AZ TechCelerator, a city-owned business innovation center, offers international businesses a unique Global Concierge Services program, otherwise known as a “Soft Landing” program. This program is intended to help international companies who want to expand into the U.S. market with less upfront costs and risks but with more support resources. In March 2018, the program was formally accepted into the Global Soft Landings Network by the International Business Incubation Association (lnBIA). It is now one of 31 members in more than eight countries with the highly competitive lnBIA Soft Landings designation.
Several international companies have landed at the AZ TechCelerator including: Glympt (Portugal), Excoro (Romania), Tellspec (Canada), Valtx (Canada), MagOu (Taiwan) and our own Meditar (Argentina). Meditar leveraged the location to do a multi-million US$ deal with an Arizona based healthcare technology provider that is also a member of Global Chamber... GlobalMed telemedicine.
We congratulate Jeanine Jerkovic, Mayor Wolcott and the entire team at City of Surprise for your innovation and winning this award!
