BRINKLEY, Ark. — Do you need help growing or expanding your business? Is your business
looking for financial assistance, but you don’t know what your options are? Is your
inner entrepreneur in need of some guidance? An upcoming event, co-hosted by the Arkansas
Procurement Technical Assistance Center, likely has the answers you’re looking for.
Arkansas Business Navigator is the newest program from the Arkansas Small Business Technology and Development
Center, a function of the federal Small Business Administration that works through
land grant universities and other institutions.
The informational session will be held Jan. 26 at the Brinkley Chamber of Commerce,
located at 217 W. Cypress St. in Brinkley. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the program
will begin at 6 p.m. There is no cost to attend.
The program is focused on supporting small business owners and entrepreneurs across
Arkansas with an emphasis on support for rural, women-owned, veteran-owned and minority-owned
businesses. It’s a joint project of the Cooperative Extension Service’s APTAC, the
Monroe and Phillips County extension offices, the Brinkley Chamber of Commerce and
East Arkansas Enterprise Community.
Kamelle Gomez, economic development program associate for the Division of Agriculture,
said the Cooperative Extension Service — the outreach arm of the University of Arkansas
System Division of Agriculture — is one of six partners supporting the program.
“We’re helping to provide no cost, one-on-one business consulting, business planning,
market research, access to capital and industry-specific training,” Gomez said. “We
want you to come learn how the Arkansas Business Navigator can help your business
launch, grow, and plan for success.”
Interested individuals may contact Gomez at 501-671-2158 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
