ASBTDC Helps Student Entrepreneurs with Build Your Own Business Initiative

ASBTDC’s new Build Your Own Business initiative is for UA Little Rock students who plan to start a business, have an idea for a side business or startup company, or have research with commercial potential.

The Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center (ASBTDC), based at the UA Little Rock School of Business, is continuing a program specifically designed to help student entrepreneurs at UA Little Rock.

ASBTDC introduced the Build Your Own Business (BYOB) program for UA Little Rock students who want to become entrepreneurs, start a side business or startup company, or have research with commercial potential.

ASBTDC is offering a free three-part webinar series this semester as well as free business consulting for students with entrepreneurial goals.

The spring 2022 webinars include:

·  Getting Ready to BYOB – Feb. 25 – Discussing what it means to be an entrepreneur, and what it means to be ready to Build Your Own Business.

·  How to BYOB – March 16 – Laying out the process of starting your own business.

·  BYOB Startup Story: Flyway Brewing – April 22 – Sharing how local brewing company Flyway Brewing started. Learn about the humble beginnings of the iconic beer and how owner Matt Foster built his own business.

The virtual Zoom sessions will be from 2-3 p.m. and will count towards a career development Career Catalyst badge for School of Business majors.

On the first and third Fridays of each month, ASBTDC business consultants will provide virtual office hours exclusively for UA Little Rock students from 1-4 p.m.
