The Arnold Innovation Center, operated by Conway Corporation, is now open in downtown Conway. Named in honor of retired Conway Corporation CEO Richard Arnold, the space is a membership-based space for startups, entrepreneurs and small business owners to launch, collaborate and grow.

The space is managed by Conductor and will offer low-cost coworking space, rental desks and meeting and event space.

“The Innovation Center will become the epicenter of Conway’s startup community,” said Brett Carroll, CEO of Conway Corp. “Technically it is an ideal location and a historical place. It’s in the heart of the Data District and just steps away from where Conway’s original startups launched nearly 150 years ago.”

The space boasts a variety of amenities and facilities, including access to Conway Corp high-speed Internet, workspace, meeting space, collaboration with other early-stage companies, networking events and direct small business support.

“We’re creating a space for creative encounters where entrepreneurs find a community of like-minded people and resources that lower the barriers to starting and growing a business,” said Grace Raines, Conductor Executive Director.

The building was originally built for First State Bank and opened in August 1960 before becoming Conway City Hall in 1986. The city moved into the Federal Building in 2020, and after a $2.7 million renovation from the Conway Corporation, the Arnold Innovation Center opened. By late summer 2022.

The building will have a grand opening on September 28th from 5:01-7:00 pm in partnership with the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce. The event will be open to the public and host food vendors, with a short program outlining the history of the project, as well as tours of the facility.

The Arnold Innovation Center offers low-cost memberships for coworking, meeting space and rented desks. Eligible members must be small business owners or entrepreneurs. The Arnold Innovation Center is located at 1201 Oak St. in Conway.
