ARISTOTLE - First Arkansas Small Business Hall of Fame Inductee
Oct. 18, 2006
Aristotle, one of the eight finalists, was chosen based on four elements - staying power, impact in dollars and/or jobs, a strong relationship with the Arkansas Small Business Development Center, and an inspirational story about their business.
"Staying power required that the business have been in existence for three to five years," said Dr. Roger Roderick, Chair of the College of business at UA Fort Smith. "The nominees also had to show their impact on a community or region and their relationship with their local ASBDC. The inspiration story we requested as part of the process had to be one that encourages or inspires entrepreneurs to start a business or would be such to encourage existing business owners to perservere. I have no doubt those selected do express each of the criteria well."
The Hall of Fame is a mechanism to showcase contributions of Arkansas small business.
