#var:page_name# cover

Each week we dive deep into a quarterly theme through the lens of technology, business, art and design, science or philanthropy. Our current quarterly focus is Sustainability.

This focus helps answer the question: "How can technology, business, art & design, science, and philanthropy meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs?"

Join us every Tuesday as leading visionaries share how their work addresses one of the three Ps of sustainability: people, planet and profits.

April Presentations:

4/3 - East Village: Community Sustainability & Our Path Forward w/ Dan Fowler @ Cromwell Architects & Engineers

4/10 - Faster, Better, Stronger: How to Win with Agile in a Global Marketplace w/ Paul Gower @ Lunamark

4/17 - Face Your Fears: Overcoming Messy Data to Create Cohesive Content w/ Lauren Lee @ Merkle

4/24 - Diversity + Inclusion in the Workplace w/ Pam Jones @ Culturally Connected Communications

Doors open at 8:30 AM for coffee and breakfast pastries, and the presentation with time for Q&A afterward begins at 9 AM.


Lift the Rock is The Venture Center's weekly program attended by local movers and shakers that educates and inspires action by exploring important local and industry topics in an interactive, storytelling format. We want to foster connections and learning to provoke conversations that change the Little Rock landscape. We also feature growing startups from time to time to integrate them with the established business community in Central Arkansas.
