New Venture Development Experience
A History of Start-Up Success
Our students count more wins at state and national business plan competitions than any other university – 27 national wins, 60 awards at the Arkansas Governor's Cup, and 3 wins at the Donald W. Reynolds Tri-State. Since 2002, students have won more than $3 million in prize money and raised more than $60 million to build their businesses. The greatest success stories, however, are the 40+ startup companies and organizations founded by the program's alumni.
The fundamentals taught in the classroom include identifying and analyzing opportunities, developing viable business models, and funding the start-up process. Whether it's the graduate certificate in entrepreneurship or the MBA entrepreneurship concentration, the goal is the same: to equip students with the tools and opportunities to develop ideas and get noticed.
As of September 2017, University of Arkansas students, faculty, and alumni with an interest in entrepreneurship have a new resource in the Brewer Family Entrepreneurship Hub on the Fayetteville square. The Hub provides free meeting and co-working space for students and alumni, hosts events and workshops, and serves the Northwest Arkansas entrepreneurial community.
