Let’s get ready for Little Rock Startup Weekend!


We have a fantastic number of participants signed up and we are a few tickets away from our 50 participant goal. However, as entrepreneurs we keep our ambitions high. With your collective help we can easily break 60-70 participants for our event April 5-7 at the Clinton School.

How are we going to do this? The funnest way possible of course. We are challenging each of you to help us sell at least 3 tickets in the next 16 days. Crazy… We think not, and here’s why -

Each participant gets:

  • Seven amazingly delicious meals and snacks
  • Access to some of Arkansas’s brightest entrepreneurs and business mentors
  • $100 Amazon Web Services credit voucher
  • Free 12 month .CO domain registration
  • An assortment of door prizes

And the chance to win these awesome prizes:

1st Place:

2nd Place:

3rd Place:

4th Place:

  • $100 towards expenses of the startup
  • 1.5 hours of legal advice from Jim Smith of Smith Hurst

5th Place:

  • One hour of legal consulting from Jamie Fugitt of William & Anderson PLC.

The person or organization who recruits the greatest number of participants will receive special recognition during the opening of final presentations. Please direct all potential participants here: and to buy tickets, here: and use promo code “SPARK” for $40 tickets.

Thanks for helping make this a reality. Now let’s make it extraordinary!

Best Regards,

The Little Rock Startup Weekend Team
