Small Business

Arkansas is home to some of the most successful businesses in the world. We have proven that when given the opportunity, we are world-class innovators and job-creators.  We see this in select parts of Northwest and Central Arkansas and we should celebrate it.  At the same time, we must work to unleash growth in the rest of the state.


Our rural communities are filled with smart and innovative people who have the vision and the courage to step up and build a new business in their local economy. What they usually don’t have is the money to get started, access to health insurance while their family takes the risk, and the first few hours of basic business training that would give them a fighting shot as they act on their dreams. These are solvable problems – and if we can come together to address them, we will empower countless Arkansans to create new and better jobs across the state.
