Get Cultured @ The Venture Center
Happy Hour Mixer w/ Complimentary Beer & Wine

Top Floor of the Little Rock Tech Park

Tues Feb 18th
5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Each summer for the past few years, we've hosted a happy hour mixer at the Venture Center located on the top floor of the Tech Park and heard from the entrepreneurs visiting Little Rock for the 12-week FIS FinTech Accelerator . The Venture Center now runs a 2nd fintech accelerator, the ICBA ThinkTech Accelerator , which is currently underway. We'll be headed to the Venture Center once again to hear from the 10 companies. Who knows, some of them may decide to make Little Rock their permanent home! We'll have complimentary beer & wine.

Registration isn't necessary in order to attend, but it helps with head-count for beer in wine, so please register if you already know you'll attend.

February brings yet another new venue for our monthly Happy Hour! We've been watching with anticipation the renovation of the historic Hall-Davidson building on Capitol Avenue into a boutique hotel. Just 1 block off of Main Street and a block away from the Little Rock Tech Park, the lobby bar of this new hotel is sure to become a popular after-work hangout. We're excited to be among the first to check the new place out!
