Wednesday, November 12, 2014 is the inaugural Demo Day for the The ARK Challenge Central Arkansas Fall 2014 program, and if you're looking for great investment opportunities, you won't want to miss it.
We received well over 40 applications from across the world, and we are pleased to present to you our companies in which the ARK Investment Fund 2014 has invested $20K in seed funding each. Be among the first to hear our teams pitch their solutions in social enterprise, healthcare IT, finance technology and government services. These founders mean business and will all be looking to raise capital. Their 8-minute investment pitches will be sandwiched between excellent networking opportunities at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center.
When & Where
The ARK Challenge
The ARK Challenge program is made possible by partnership of Winrock International and Arkansas Economic Development Commission for advancement of entrepreneurship in the State of Arkansas. We received our start in 2012 through support of the U.S. Department of Commerce Jobs and Innovation Acceleration Challenge that, for the first time ever, granted collaborative funding from Economic Development Administration, Small Business Administration and Employment and Training Administration.
Arkansas Development Finance Authority, Winrock International Investment Committee, TechRock, Torch Fund and Tonic NWA Fund have banded together to invest $20K in seed funding in each of The ARK Challenge Central Arkansas' 7 selected startups for our fall 2014 cohort.
A big thank-you goes out to Innovate Arkansas, The ARK Challenge Mentors and our super-regional community of investors and business leaders for making this such a worthwhile program for our founders, year after year.
