It’s not too late to watch a simulcast of the 2012 Lean Startup Conference with fellow entrepreneurs and Innovate Arkansas advisors from IA’s Winrock offices in Little Rock.
IA is hosting an Arkansas-exclusive simulcast of the third-annual event, taking place all day Monday and Tuesday in San Francisco. The simulcast is being held in the Gary Greene Conference Room at Winrock International’s Little Rock corporate headquarters on Riverfront Drive.
It may be too late to grab a free lunch, but some free knowledge…now that’s on the menu til this thing wraps up at 8 tonight (plus they have some extra boxed lunches from Jimmy’s in the frig).
