It is not uncommon for Asian immigrants to see America as a land of opportunity. Many are grateful to be pursuing the American Dream in Arkansas, but often doing business as an Asian entrepreneur can feel like there are missing links and challenges for both the Asian immigrant and those from other cultures wanting to collaborate.
Fixing a missing link can be difficult if you don’t know where to begin. Join us for this discussion as a panel of Asian entrepreneurs and advocates share their experiences doing business in the Asian community. This panel discussion is not intended to be a solution to various barriers and obstacles, but to provide insight, which is the first step to overcoming them.
This discussion is open to the public, but can be beneficial to those wanting to do business with the Asian Community such as small businesses, chamber professionals, government agencies, private corporations, healthcare institutions, and community development corporations.
