Venture Center Entrepreneur Support Programs

Spark! is a small business pre-accelerator by The Venture Center and the Little Rock Regional Chamber that provides opportunities, exposure, and company growth for local entrepreneurs. 

The basis of this accelerator? Empowerment and access to resources.

Through mentorship, group sessions, expert-led workshops, feedback on pitches, and the opportunity to win thousands of dollars in a pitch contest, Spark! helps entrepreneurs refine the tools they have and acquire the ones they need.

Are you interested in participating in the next Spark! Program? Applications will open in August, but you can put your name on our mailing list to receive alerts here.
