SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Federal Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker will head to Arizona this week to look at entrepreneurial opportunities at an Arizona State University business development.
 
Officials at SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center, say Pritzker will tour the 42-acre mixed-use development Wednesday.
 
Pritzker's visit comes a week after President Barack Obama announced $600 million in competitive grants to spur creation of targeted training and apprenticeship programs to help people land good-paying jobs.
 
Pritzker was sworn in as commerce secretary in June 2013.
 
The Chicago billionaire business executive and philanthropist is a longtime Obama friend who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for both of his presidential campaigns.
 
SkySong was built to be a global business community to help make ASU and Phoenix strong contenders in technology, entrepreneurship, innovation and education.
