Couple things on a cloudy, fall-y Tuesday in downtown Little Rock.
And, of course, they both involve Northwest Arkansas, where it is undoubtedly even more fall-y. Probably by 10 degrees or so (in terms of temperature and foliage, although once the first week of November kicks in down here, so does the color — it’s really nice right now).
First, the ARK Challenge holds its inaugural Demo Day on Thursday at Crystal Bridges in Bentonville. (B-town? B-daddy? B-mart?)
Demo Day, as most of you likely know, entails the 15 participating startups (from across Arkansas, the Union and even two international ventures) pitching the fruits of the labor exerted over the past three months in Fayetteville. More info here.
It’s too late to sign up, but look for coverage of the event from ArkansasBusiness.com and of course, right here in INOV8.
On Wednesday, sort of as an opening act, G60 will play the Iceberg co-working space in Fayetteville (although we all know G60 takes a back seat to no one). The latest G60 event in Conway was a big success. Too late to pitch, but register to attend Wednesday’s show here.
IA client NanoMech has been in the news a lot lately, and here’s a little more news. The nanotech giant has added Deborah Wince-Smith, a former official in the Reagan and Bush I administrations, to its board.
Here’s the full press release. Arkansans should expect more big things from this manufacturer of such tiny particles. (Couldn’t resist.)
