The symposium reported in this volume convened state officials and staff, business leaders, and leading national figures in early-stage finance, technology, engineering, education, and state and federal policies to review challenges, plans, and opportunities for innovation-led growth in Arkansas. The symposium included an assessment of Arkansas' natural, industrial, and human resources; an identification of key sectors and issues; and a discussion of how the state might leverage national programs to support its economic development goals.
