Casey Kinsey joins us from Lofty Labs, a value added tech consultancy that thrives at the intersection of Web Development and Data Analytics. Casey shares some of his entrepreneurial journey, including the tipping point was when he realized he'd never work for someone else again, accidentally growing Lofty Labs to something larger than himself, and advice for startups who need to hire outside tech help.

Kirsten Blowers and Anna Morrison join us to share their experiences about starting and growing a business in Northwest Arkansas.  Kirsten started Riffraff seven years ago, starting with only $100 and growing a business now worth over a million dollars.  Kirsten was recently named to Forbes 30 under 30 for retail entrepreneurship and Riffraff has nearly 200,000 followers on Instagram.  Anna Morrison started Campus Concierge four years ago and employs over 100 tutors in Fayetteville.  She was recognized by Arkansas Business as a 20 in their 20s for 2015. 

Both of these ladies are total rock stars and fun fact, Anna was one of Kirsten’s first employees at the original Riffraff store!

The NWA Venture MashUp is held around Northwest Arkansas to bring the entrepreneurial community together and celebrate a local success story. We had the opportunity to learn from Kenny Tomlin, who has been a technology leader, startup founder, investor and more over his career.

Most notably in our local startup scene, Kenny started Rockfish Digital which grew (without ever raising capital)  to be acquired by WPP in 2011.

Kenny is now leading WPP ventures, and working with YouEarnedIt, an employee engagement platform, as well as SubVRsive, a Virtual Reality company.
