Winrock believes in the power of great ideas — and the social entrepreneurs who make them a reality. We help small farmers, technology innovators and others share knowledge, establish standards, form networks, find funding and connect with strategic partners.
Though the bulk of Winrock’s programs are outside the United States, we are committed to improving lives in our home state of Arkansas by boosting the state’s competitiveness in the increasingly important high-tech economy. To do that, we work with technology inventors and entrepreneurs to smooth the often difficult journey from raw idea or insight to viable commercial enterprise. Innovate Arkansas helps scale Arkansas ventures through three key focuses: Acceleration, Capital, and Talent. Innovate Arkansas has helped more than 600 companies add more than 820 jobs while raising $364.5 million in investments and generating $389.4 million in revenue.
