U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor will host a Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee roundtable at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 8, in the Donald W. Reynolds Center for Business and Economic Development auditorium.
The roundtable is titled, “From Warriors to Entrepreneurs: Business Opportunities for Veterans.”
Pryor said he wants to do his part to help connect Arkansas veterans with the resources and programs they need to start and expand a successful small business.
He will be joined by Small Business Administration acting administrator Jeanne Hulit, Arkansas SBA officials, and Arkansas veteran business owners at the event.
Pryor said when traveling around the state, he often meets members of the military who want to make the leap from soldier to business owner, but may not have access to the resources and services to help make the dream a reality.
The Reynolds center is located in the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s College of Business.
