The REDC has played a vital role in supporting Eightfold's growth as a technology company in Arizona. As a partner and resource, they have helped us secure financing, connect with talented individuals, and access the resources we need in order to expand. I am truly grateful and proud to partner with such an incredible organization and talented, capable staff.
