Introducing the New AZ5C

Turning the spotlight on the businesses, non-profits, and communities of Arizona who are setting the pace for change and innovation.

A history worth knowing

In 1918, the Arizona 5 Cs were created based on the state's main economic drivers and sought to communicate all that Arizona had to offer. A century later, Arizona deserves to be known for a lot more, and the 5 Cs could use an upgrade.
