Client Testimonials

What our clients are saying
Brian Stack - CEO, Unityware

Just having someone there so you're not alone, it keeps you on track. They've offered all kinds of assistance in trying to make this thing a viable business. They're doing things that are going to make it easier for this company to succeed and, of course, save time. In addition to the emotional support, it's going to cost me less to get into business. When I first met with Innovate Arkansas, I had the technology working, and now I have it ready to use.

Lydia Carson - President & CEO, Balm Innovations

As an economic developer and entrepreneur, I was pleased when I learned that Arkansas was establishing Innovate Arkansas with a mission similar to successful programs such as i2E in Oklahoma. The efficiency with which Winrock has ramped up the program is impressive, and I am honored that Balm Innovations has been selected as a client company. We look forward to tapping into the expertise of the Innovate Arkansas staff as we expand the Omnibalm product line and distribution throughout the U.S. and internationally.
