Startup Junkie and WLJ Tech Law are partnering to deliver increased resources to the Arkansas entrepreneurial ecosystem and startup community.
A Little Rock- and Rogers-based division of Wright Lindsey Jennings, WLJ Tech Law focuses on corporate formation, investment, intellectual property and more, as well as supporting entrepreneurs. The firm is partnering with Startup Junkie to provide seminars, podcasts and blog content.
WLJ Tech Law will also provide support for multiple Startup Junkie’s programs, including Startup Crawl and the Fuel Accelerator.
“We are proud to collaborate with Startup Junkie to help expand access to education and resources for the tech-based and entrepreneur community,” Brandon Middleton, one of WLJ Tech Law’s lead attorneys, said in a statement. “With many small businesses and startups still battling the impact of COVID-19 on their growth, and the continued struggle of women and minority entrepreneurs to overcome systemic challenges, it is a critical time to increase our support for an inclusive and vibrant community.”
This is the latest partnership that WLJ Tech Law has formed with an Arkansas entrepreneur-focused organization. The organization has also supported the Venture Center, Conductor, the NWA Tech Summit, I-Fund/Delta I-Fund, the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center, the Arkansas Women’s Business Center and more.
“The Startup Junkie team is thrilled for the opportunity to partner with WLJ Tech Law,” Caleb Talley, Startup Junkie director of marketing and events, said. “WLJ attorneys have a stellar reputation when it comes to serving the startup community, and we are excited for chance to amplify our own efforts to serve this community through this collaboration. WLJ Tech Law shares our commitment to innovators and entrepreneurs, and we look forward to expanding our reach and resources, together, to remove barriers, democratize access, and provide strategic support to anyone looking to establish or grow a business in Arkansas.”
