Edie's Village

Opening in late August, the El Dorado Incubator Environment (EDIE) will be a retail business accelerator that provides the framework and support for a student-run business and accompanying retail space for the student business, recent Operation Jump Start graduates, and other AWBC clients throughout Arkansas.

This low cost, low risk endeavor will give start-up businesses a safe, efficient, and effective way to “test the waters” for their products. EDIE’s Village will work in conjunction with existing entrepreneurship programs as a means to enhance Arkansas’s entrepreneurial climate.

Your contribution to the AWBC allows us to continue to make dreams of business ownership a reality for women in Arkansas. Women across the state learn skills and tools to make their business venture a success.
