Plug and Play announced plans today to expand and create a new supply chain and logistics accelerator in Northwest Arkansas.
The new program will bring innovative startups from around the world to Northwest Arkansas and build upon the fast-growing region’s robust innovation ecosystem.

An official launch event will take place in Northwest Arkansas this summer.
Ten Springdale Har-Ber High School students who completed a portion of the training they’ll need to someday become electricians and plumbers were among those who took part in the nation’s first SkillsUSA National Signing Day.
