Game Changers: Startup Stories By Local Entrepreneurs.

Join the Conductor, young professionals and startup community for Game Changers, an event celebrating the startup community through networking and storytelling.

Entrepreneurs will share their story in 5 minutes, followed by a 20-minute Q&A with the audience. Get a first-hand account of the successes and challenges faced by Arkansas entrepreneurs and how they got their start.

This month we will hear from two entrepreneurs: Travis Hester (Eat My Catfish) and Nick Wood (Zumbeedo).

Travis Hester has taken from a food truck in 2008 to what is now three very popular brick and mortar locations. Don't miss his story of how it happened!

Learn how Nick Wood is helping local beekeepers by using their beeswax and adding his own value to make his own business.
