ASBTDC to Host Smart Growth Accelerator Program in 3 Counties Starting in April


JONESBORO – The Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center (ASBTDC) at Arkansas State University will host the Smart Growth Accelerator program, a series of webinars that will provide planning, marketing and financing strategies on how to grow an already-existing business through COVID and beyond.           

The program is for businesses located in any of these three counties —Craighead, Crittenden and Mississippi — who have been open for one year or more but less than five years and have at least one other employee besides the owner.

 The dates are Wednesday, April 7 (spring cohort begins), Wednesday, July 14 (summer cohort begins) and Wednesday, Sept. 1 (fall cohort begins).

There is no cost to participate. Due to COVID-19, sessions will be held via Zoom from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. to allow for a working lunch. Participation is required for all sessions.
