2. Vector Space

Vector Space

Founded: 2016

Also honored in:

“Space need not be the realm of the elite, and privileged few any longer. Vector was founded to break down those barriers by developing a platform to provide low cost, and reliable access to orbit. Vector allows our customers to focus on space applications and building companies around their technologies in space, and not the underlying launch and space hardware. This innovative boundary breaking approach applied to space will enable startups and cost conscious innovators alike to concentrate on what’s most important, their unique applications. Today innovators may have to wait years to get their products to market and orbit, no longer.”

3. CropTrak


Founded: 2009

Also honored in: 2018 Best Tech Startups in Tucson

“Cogent3D, Inc. dba CropTrak was started by a team of serial entrepreneurs that successfully launched, operated, and sold a 3D military GIS software company. The team has expertise in agronomy, military grade GIS, 3D visualization, and building applications that MUST WORK every time, even in harsh environments, without the internet, and will never lose data since lives depend on it.

We run a profitable company on cash-flow without ownership or subsidy by an ag retailer, chemical, or hardware company. We have never had a free or freemium product to get market share and our 500+ customer companies are all paying customers. Because we are spending our own money, we focus on the client getting maximum ROI and rather than chasing the latest technology fad to get press.”

5. ViewSpection


Founded: 2013

“ViewSpection provides a self-service loss control platform that makes the policyholder the inspector.

Every day, Property & Casualty underwriters, agents and brokers insure unseen risk. Even with big data, underwriters often need inspections to get detail on the property. But no one likes the inspection process.

Those completed inspections create brand damage through cancelations, premium increases and policy exclusions.”
