The Venture Center, in partnership with Arkansas Money & Politics and Apptegy, has launched VCTech, a program that heightens awareness of local technology startup companies and builds on Arkansas’ rich legacy of technology innovation.
Through VCTech, budding businesses have an opportunity to network at quarterly events and generate interest in their products to improve their chances of getting the support they need to grow.
“We are proud to introduce VCTech, our latest program designed to support entrepreneurs in Arkansas,” said Mimi San Pedro, chief strategy officer of The Venture Center. “Arkansas is a global player in the tech industry, and our tech entrepreneurs are excited to build strong local communities for support and inspiration. We are energized to produce this program in partnership with Arkansas Money & Politics and Apptegy, and we know Arkansans will support the future of tech growing right here in our own backyard.”
The Venture Center is a globally recognized, Arkansas-based Entrepreneurial Support Organization (ESO) that helps entrepreneurs turn their startups into viable, high-growth businesses. By leveraging the expertise of a world class team of mentors, intensive programming and introductions to the investor community, The Venture Center serves as an engine for economic growth in Arkansas and beyond.
“We are so excited to partner with The Venture Center on this project that will help amplify local tech entrepreneurs and continue to elevate Arkansas’ status as a leader in technological innovation,” said Heather Baker, Arkansas Money & Politics’ president and publisher.
