The Walton College SBTDC is part of the state-wide ASBTDC system. We serve the for-profit, small businesses of the eight county region of NWA. Half funded by a federal Small Business Administration grant, and half by the University of rkansas, Walton College, we are here to assist owners with start-up counseling (drafting business plans, the loan process, profit loss projections, etc.) and by providing FREE market research for new OR existing small businesses that normally can cost thousands of dollars regarding potential customers and competitors. The training coordinator also recruits local marketing firms, attorneys, accountants, etc. to volunteer as speakers on topics such as QuickBooks, marketing, legal issues, social media, etc. We work with area chambers of commerce, banks, and civic organizations on these presentations. Due to grants, our seminars are sometimes free to the public. Call (479) 575-5148; website http://sbtdc.uark.edu
