The ASU Research Park has a new resident. GoDaddy, the Web’s top platform for small businesses, broke ground May 7 on a new 150,000 square-foot Global Technology Center at the ASU Research Park in Tempe, Ariz. The new facility initially will create 300 new jobs, and eventually is expected to house 1,300 GoDaddy employees.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving attended the groundbreaking event and cemented their footprints in concrete, which will be on display at the new facility. ASU President Michael Crow and Morgan R. Olsen, ASU executive vice president, treasurer and CFO, also were on hand to welcome the ASU Research Park’s new residents.

“The ASU Research Park is the perfect location for companies to align with our large number of faculty members at one of the world’s leading research universities,” Olsen said. “Collaboration with the ASU Research Park companies offers students the chance to enhance their education and gain skills that can result in jobs for them post-graduation. The ASU Research Park currently houses more than 47 companies and employs 4,600 people. We welcome GoDaddy to our community and believe their presence will be beneficial for all.”
