About AZStart

AZStart is a website that provides a wealth of information for people who want to learn more about starting a company. We also provide information for those already running business ventures, and anyone who wants to learn more about entrepreneurship. On Entrepedia, you will find information about starting a business, funding, financial projections, and much more.

Who Runs AZStart?

AZStart was created in 2009 by Andrew Torres, an entrepreneur in the tech industry. After creating several businesses, Andrew decided to create a spot to disseminate information about entrepreneurship and small business ownership to the masses. AZStart is now primarily run by a group of volunteers who consist of business owners, former business owners, finance experts, and more.

A special thanks to the volunteers that keep the AZStart site running.
