The Hub

Discover. Create. Launch.

The Brewer Family Entrepreneurship Hub is an interdisciplinary collaboration venue, co-working space, and training center for new and early stage entrepreneurs in Northwest Arkansas.

Its members include University of Arkansas student, faculty, and alumni entrepreneurs, many of whom are creating and advancing new knowledge-based ventures in Northwest Arkansas.

 
Coworking Space

Anyone in the University of Arkansas community with an interest in entrepreneurship and innovation may use the Hub as a coworking space during business hours (8-5, M-F). Hub members may apply for keycard access, reserve rooms in advance, and hold business meetings at the Hub. Available spaces, all equipped with Wi-Fi, video monitors and an Ideapaint wall, include:

  • Small huddle rooms appropriate for groups of 2-4.
  • A large conference room for groups of 8-12.
  • Common spaces, including indoor/outdoor patios and the "living room," which accommodates 50 people.

     

Workshops & Seminars

The Hub offers a variety of free workshops on topics ranging from lean canvas principles to design thinking to how to pitch an idea or find investors. Faculty with an interest in using workshops as a required or optional component of their courses should contact Sarah Goforth at goforth@uark.edu.

Competitions & Hackathons

Often in partnership with departments on campus or external partners such as Startup Junkie Consulting, the Hub hosts competitions for students and the wider entrepreneurial community, including the Blockchain Hackathon and Startup Weekend
