The Holiday season is almost upon us, but there is still time for one more e-Catalyst newsletter from CBC! In this issue you will find a great interview with Profesor Jeff Pyun describing the role of Tech Launch Arizona in his success as an entrepreneur. We also introduce you to our new CBC website and provide a link to the online version of the Fall 2015 Catalyst alumni magazine. Best of all, there is a link to an Arizona Daily Wildcat story about the CBC 2015 Octoberfest Picnic that featured a doggie costume contest -- some very cute canines. Enjoy!
