In partnership with the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU), leading global technology solutions provider Avnet (Nasdaq: AVT) continues its commitment to guiding innovation and entrepreneurship with introduction of the fourth Avnet Innovation Lab cohort. From healthcare and agriculture to transportation and beyond, these entrepreneurial organizations create revolutionary technology to help improve the world. They will work with the Avnet Innovation Lab to accelerate their ideas and take their inventions to the next level.
Inaugurated in 2015, the Avnet Innovation Lab spurs economic growth in technology and enables aspiring entrepreneurs to advance their innovations. Additionally, Avnet and ASU provide mentorship, critical connections and dedicated lab space to help engineers bring their technologies to market.

"Working alongside ASU's Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, our goal is to give today's developers the services and resources they might not otherwise have access to.
