A Better Region 8 Guest Editorial: Accelerate Jonesboro

From Cari White, COO of the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce:

We are surrounded by all kinds of products that make our lives more convenient and more entertaining all invented by someone with a great idea.

Do you have a great idea? Something that you believe will be the next chip clip, selfie stick or smart watch? How about a process for making farming more efficient or safer football helmets?

The Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce a new partnership with local angel investors aimed at generating business in our region called Accelerate Jonesboro. Our focus is to grow local businesses in our region to provide jobs and a more vibrant economy.

The goal of this exciting new program is to turn great ideas into start-up businesses and eventually thriving companies.

Like on the popular TV shows, the entrepreneur will be in the late start-up lifecycle of their idea or product with a proven plan in place. Next, they must demonstrate the commercial feasibility of the product and be based in Northeast Arkansas. It's a simple application process and we offer advice from experts to help you along the way.

Applications are being accepted until the end of August.

Get all of the information about Accelerate Jonesboro on our website, jonesborochamber.com.

Working together makes this A Better Region 8!
