The A-State Innovation System (“A-State Innovate”), led by the Arkansas State University Delta Center for Economic Development, is a synchronized complex of sites and resources designed to nurture entrepreneurship in the Jonesboro region and East Arkansas. Existing assets, key partners and infrastructure have been strategically aligned to create a robust regional innovation system. A-State Innovate will have facilities and programs that include a proof-of-concept center and maker’s space in Downtown Jonesboro, an industrial and manufacturing center located in the Jonesboro Industrial Park, and incubation space and wet labs at the Arkansas Biosciences Institute on the A-State Campus. The system will further enhance job growth and retention, foster opportunity, and lead to an even stronger regional economy.
