Arkansas Innovation Council

Asa Hutchinson

Governor Asa Hutchinson has invited a group of key leaders from Arkansas businesses, research universities, philanthropic organizations, and state agencies to form the Arkansas Innovation Council. The Arkansas Innovation Council will meet twice a year with the Governor serving as chair of the council. 

“The long-term success of our state will hinge on the development and expansion of Arkansas’s knowledge-based, technology-driven economy,” Governor Hutchinson said. “We can accelerate our development if we draw on the experience of a diverse group of key leaders. The members of this council are to partner with me to identify resources and skills that will transform the ability of businesses to grow in Arkansas.”

The council will work with the Governor to identify gaps and seek new ideas, initiatives, and recommendations to form a strategic plan complete with specific action steps. This plan will guide the efforts of Arkansas business and industry, higher education, not-for-profits, and state and local governments to create a measurable expansion of Arkansas’s knowledge-based economy.      MORE
