“We’re thrilled to be a part of the startup community in northwest Arkansas,” he said. “There are some amazing, high-growth companies like Acumen and Collective Bias attracting much needed national attention. We also have some great foundational organizations like ARK Challenge, Innovate Arkansas and Startup Arkansas. So many talented people dedicated to the success of our region.”

But Saumweber believes the region has yet to realize its full potential.

“We need to find better ways to involve the big business in our region,” he said. “That can be a great symbiotic relationship with startups offering innovation and big business providing opportunity.”
Arkansas needs more graduates ready for the startup life, he said: young professionals with “broad capability across user experience and design, and developers who are well-versed in new technology like mobile development.”  

“There are great-paying jobs at exciting companies right here in northwest Arkansas for these skill sets.”

Saumweber hopes RevUnit can continue to provide more of them.
