Entrepreneurship is in our DNA

Most people only know Northwest Arkansas as the "home office." Walmart did start here, but so did Tyson Foods, J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Simmons Foods, Allens Inc., PAM Transport and America's CAR-MART. They grew into industry-leading operations here. The confluence of talent, research and expertise is providing the ingredients for NWA 2.0. New, innovative companies are rising to support the critical mass of retail, food and logistics companies in the region, and local leaders are determined to provide an environment to help new companies start, grow and thrive. One of the best environments to transition a great idea with small beginnings into a full-fledged company is the ARK Challenge, a 14-week entrepreneurial boot camp where Northwest Arkansas mentors provide guidance to people from around the world with great ideas. The ARK Challenge has its own website, and this video provides great insight into what the 2012 attendees thought of their ARK Challenge experience in Northwest Arkansas.
