The Little Rock Technology Park Authority board will go into executive session at its regular meeting tomorrow to consider applicants for the Tech Park director’s job. The meeting is at 4 p.m. in the Pulaski County Regional Building at Markham and Broadway, across from City Hall.
There are eight candidates:
of Texas Candy Bouquet International CEO;
, director at FLEX360 Web Development of Little Rock;
of TargetSmart Communications in Little Rock;
of Innovis Labs, Little Rock;
, consultant with the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center at UALR;
of Arkansas State University’s Small Business and Technology Development Center, and
, vice president of IT at NovaSys Health.
The Authority, which has been searching for accelerator/programming space for Little Rock’s first Ark Challenge, is now considering the former On the Rocks bar space in the Block 2 lofts across from the Little Rock Convention Center. The authority has apparently rejected a space on the 100 block of Main Street next door to Orbea Bike headquarters. The new location is just under 8,000 square feet. Board member Jay Chesshir is handling negotiations; the lease is also on the agenda tomorrow.
