The Arkansas Collaborative for Technological and Innovative Venture Equality (ACTIVE) initiative aims to enhance health outcomes throughout Arkansas, creating a supportive environment for the growth of innovative ideas and entrepreneurs.

We’re shaping the future of Arkansas healthcare.


BioVentures, in partnership with The Venture Center, has launched the ACTIVE initiative to support early-stage healthcare and health technology companies and socially and economically disadvantaged innovators (SEDI) in Arkansas. This initiative aims to empower entrepreneurs who face social and economic barriers—including racial or ethnic minorities, women, veterans, and individuals with disabilities—to transform healthcare locally and globally. If you are an Arkansas resident with a burgeoning healthcare or health tech business, you may be eligible to participate.
