ABOUT THE HUB
The Innovation Hub is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of Arkansans by inspiring innovation and expanding opportunities. Since the Hub’s opening in 2014, our state-of-the-art facilities have provided tools and training to entrepreneurs, students and other makers, preparing them to join and grow Arkansas’ economic ecosystem.
We see an Arkansas where, regardless of demographic identifiers or geographic location, Arkansans are generating and inspiring innovation in cutting-edge technology, business, and creative fields. The Innovation Hub uses tools, skills, and expertise to inspire innovators and entrepreneurs who expand the range of educational and economic opportunities for themselves, for their communities, in our state and throughout the world.
Why We’re Here
The challenges of the 21st-century startup economy require us to develop, retain, and attract Arkansas’s greatest asset—talent. That goal demands a collaborative community approach: exposing everyone to creative possibilities and offering them access to information, resources and instruction. It also demands we look for and engage that talent everywhere—not just in Central Little Rock, but all over the Arkansas region.
At our North Little Rock facility, we have created an open environment full of tools, technology, equipment and support. Through formal and informal programs, we provide makers of all ages, interests and skill levels with opportunities for apprenticeship. Through classes in carpentry, welding, graphic design, laser cutting and more, our visitors gain valuable job training, preparing them to navigate the challenges of the modern workforce.
Our mobile makerspace, the Innovation Hub on Wheels, takes that learning on the road, tapping the potential of Arkansas’ underserved communities. The result? An acceleration of innovation that spurs employment, job creation, and economic and community growth, lifting up Arkansas and the surrounding region.
