Why Little Rock?

Where miles equal minutes, over 1 million people live within 50 minutes of downtown Little Rock. Within the metro area, unique communities and counties are united to compete as one common, globally-recognized brand – Little Rock.

From large worldwide companies to new tech startups, we have the workforce, partners, and programs that will help you create success. Some of these worldwide companies include Caterpillar Inc., Dassault Falcon Jet Corp., Dillard’s Inc.FIS Global, L'Oreal USA Products, Inc., Stephens Inc., and Welspun Tubular, LLC.

Organizations like the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub, Little Rock Tech Park, and The Venture Center also contribute to our creative, forward-thinking culture in the startup realm. In fact, we’re considered the birthplace of FinTech thanks to the founding of Systematics in the 1960's. Little Rock is home to two national FinTech Accelerators: FIS FinTech Accelerator and the ICBA ThinkTech Accelerator. Both accelerators are 12-week programs designed to increase the growth of early stage financial technology ventures. 

Our military installations include the Little Rock Air Force Base and Camp Joe T. Robinson, which combine for over $800 million in annual economic impact for the State of Arkansas.
