ASBTDC to Host Smart Growth Accelerator Program in Three Counties


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 either Craighead, Crittenden or Mississippi county. These businesses must have been open for one-to-five years and have at least one employee in addition to the owner. 

The fall cohort starts Sept. 1 and 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.
