In this video, Innovate Arkansas and Arkansas Business go inside the Iceberg in Fayetteville, a co-working space for entrepreneurs and startups in northwest Arkansas.

Set in the basement of the Metro District Commercial Center at 509 W. Spring St., the Iceberg takes up 5,600 SF, with another 3,000 SF available for future expansion. Its amenities include wireless and wired Internet access, presentation equipment and "office essentials such as a printer, scanner, fax and plenty of coffee."

Right now, the site is hosting The ARK program, a technology accelerator program that's received funding from the $37 million Jobs & Innovation Accelerator Challenge, an effort by the Department of Commerce to spur job creation within targeted regional industry clusters. Startups taking part in The Ark are attempting to conjure new innovation and investment with the help of mentors and resources at the Iceberg and local universities. 

In the video above, we chat with Iceberg board member Mo Elliott and local entrepreneurs and IA clients Ryan Frazier of TTAGG and Chris Brown of eKrowd about how the space is helping the local startup scene continue to thrive.
