Startup space

Conway can turn great business ideas into fast-growing employers.

The time between having a great idea and hiring your first few employees is a challenging, but critical, time in a business’s life. Affordable – or even free – work space that complements your business might make the difference between success and failure. Combine that with mentorship, programming, and shared office resources and overhead and you’ve got a recipe for small business job growth.

The Conway Area Chamber of Commerce and Conway Development Corporation, in partnership with Conway Corporation, will develop the Arnold Innovation Center. Honoring retiring Conway Corporation CEO Richie Arnold, this downtown facility will become the epicenter of Conway’s startup community. With plans for co-working space, leasable office suites and seminar facilities, the Arnold Innovation Center will provide a continuum of space for Conway startups as they grow.
