We’ve seen how beneficial it is to have locally-based companies creating jobs and reinvesting in our area in different ways, and we’d like to see that continue for generations. With this goal, StartupNWA makes important connections among investors, entrepreneurs and the region’s established companies. Between that access and our great lifestyle amenities, NWA is the ideal place for entrepreneurs focused on building businesses in supply chain, food and consumer retail.
Some key initiatives include:
Expanding funding and support for startups and small businesses
Promoting the University of Arkansas as the region’s entrepreneurial hub
Creating strategies to respond to current and future workforce need
Focusing on entrepreneurial and support activities to grow and promote an innovation-minded culture
