Over the last few years, Arkansas has become one of the fastest growing states in America. Thanks to the work of the Governor’s office, the Arkansas Economic Development Commission and a number of entrepreneurial organizations dedicated to economic growth, the state has started to see a drastic change in the opinions of entrepreneurs, with more starting to believe the state is a good place to do business. Considering small businesses dominate the state’s economy and employ nearly half of the private workforce, it was only a matter of time before something was done to improve things. One reason for its improvement is the targeted tax incentive programs that have been launched during this time, but the wide range of incentives, grants and financing options also play a part. The fastest growing part of the state is in the northwest, where over three-hundred start-ups have launched in the last five years. Businesses and franchises also benefit from Arkansas having the second lowest labour costs in the U.S.
