Our Mission

The Arizona Blockchain Initiative is a Tech-Ed Nonprofit focused on the social impact of decentralized technology, empowering communities by delivering access to knowledge and opportunities.


We had our very first Arizona Tech Brief in September 2018, which is an invite-only event and aims to inform decision-makers about technology. We want to create a pool of resources to keep politicians engaged, and connect them to tech leaders when it's time to create policy.


AZBI exists as a vehicle of inclusion for communities, which will benefit from having access to knowledge and information. We empower the community by creating programs that will better prepare them for a modern workforce.

Tech Pathways

We are designing a workshop curriculum to provide skill-building and introduction to careers in front-end development, back-end development, blockchain, cybersecurity, and decentralized technologies.

Our Projects

This is our Mesh Network project!

Project Phoenix is a collaborative enterprise spearheaded by Arizona Blockchain Initiative in partnership with socially conscious organizations. Project Phoenix is a free internet project, utilizing decentralized mesh technology, that serves to educate and empower community members ensuring they can prosper.


We’re here to provide the knowledge that our decision makers don’t have time to go seek.

The Arizona Cyber Warfare Range, the Arizona Blockchain Initiative, the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center, and the Urban Area Security Initiative have joined forces to organize the AZ Tech Brief, a series of bi-monthly briefings about current and future technology, its impact on society, the economy, and cybersecurity. Examining both the positive and the negative impacts.
