Supporting science-and-tech startup enterprises in Arkansas

Project Title: Science Venture Studio at Winrock International

Science Venture Studio at Winrock International is a science-and-technology startup facilitator that helps promising new, Arkansas-based ventures commercialize and obtain federal funding. The SVS project works with early-stage companies to help them obtain critical, non-dilutive federal funding – front-end cash that does not require startup entrepreneurs to forfeit any equity in their new businesses. The project helps companies prepare competitive proposals through the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs, both run by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
