The Venture Center takes a decidedly pro-business approach to entrepreneurism. We connect powerful ideas to viability, creating real jobs and boosting the knowledge-based economy in Arkansas. Over the past two and a half years, we have supported the creation of 286 new jobs in Central Arkansas, and our member companies have successfully raised a collective $19 million. That’s an incredible economic impact in a short time and we’re just getting started.
Our membership in the prestigious Startup Federation, strengthens the hand of our member companies by leveraging the resources and connections of the Federation in cities around the globe. It also broadens the global impact that the Venture Center can make.
The Venture Center is also a proud member of Start Here Little Rock, which was launched to close the gap for women and minority entrepreneurs in access to capital.
