Mainstream Technologies Sponsors Venture Center’s Code•IT!

Fostering Technology Entrepreneurs

(Little Rock, Ark.) – September 22, 2014 — The founders of Mainstream were delighted when the Arkansas Venture Center [Venture Center] announced its content programming to foster technology entrepreneurship and technical talent in Central Arkansas. Looking for ways to contribute, Mainstream chose to sponsor Code•IT! — a monthly, interactive workshop, designed to engage startup entrepreneurs and developers with established business owners, product engineers and other experts. Sessions are slated the 4th Tuesday of each month.

“We are thrilled to have the support of a flagship Little Rock-based company like Mainstream Technologies,” said Lee Watson, President of the Arkansas Venture Center.  “Mainstream’s sponsorship demonstrates they understand the important role strong, established firms play in a community’s ability to grow a knowledge-based ecosystem.  Programs like Code•IT are places where talented, technical people can feed off one another’s talent, creativity and support.  By partnering with us, essentially, Mainstream is investing in Central Arkansas and in our ability to keep technical resources here, at home and develop stronger talent.”

For 18 years, Mainstream has been helping grow and improve the technology community in Central Arkansas, an industry with high paying jobs, so that people can stay and succeed instead of having to leave for more recognized technology hubs such as Austin, Nashville, or Silicon Valley. According to John Burgess, President: “We are proud to sponsor Code•IT through the Arkansas Venture Center. As a fellow startup, we appreciate the challenges that new entrepreneurs face and recognize the advantages they gain by having access to these top-flight resources. We look forward to engaging with this generation of start ups.”

Mainstream Technologies is one of the fastest growing IT Services companies in the Mid-South, serving clients from its headquarters in Little Rock. It is currently ranked among the top 10 of all privately held Arkansas companies on the Inc. 5000 annual growth list. Its staff of 48 serves business and government customers across the nation with Managed Services, Custom Software and Hosting.
