Startup Junkie, a local startup consulting and venture organization, hosted a highly successful event for startup companies and communities around NWA. Starting in the Engineering and Research Center where WattGlass is located, guests enjoyed beer and booths of various companies founded mostly from University of Arkansas research programs. After this, everyone headed to the Fayetteville square to explore numerous different kinds of startups and small businesses.
Not many would expect such a thriving startup community in Arkansas, however the entrepreneurial spirit has grown with surprising enthusiasm and Startup Junkie has certainly played a role in this. As a startup it truly helps to be surrounded by other energetic individuals going through the similar challenges of carving out one's own space in a particular market.
