“This hit us like a semi-truck. The competition is a big deal – we had been working for months. But, when we stepped into the room for the luncheon, that’s the moment when it hit. There were lights everywhere… hundreds of important business people. It was professional and it solidified and legitimized our Governor’s Cup experience.”

-Jeremy Enders, team member, “Arleesa”
2014 Donald W. Reynolds Governor’s Cup Winner – Undergraduate Division

Thank you for considering a sponsorship for the 15th annual Donald W. Reynolds Governor’s Cup. Sponsorships defray the cost of travel and lodging for competitors who travel to Little Rock on April 2 and 3 for the Oral Presentation rounds.

Sponsorships also ensure the Awards Luncheon (April 22) will continue to be an exciting and memorable event that is a celebration of our state’s rich entrepreneurial history. The luncheon reinforces the fact that the resources and talent to succeed in business are right here at home and shows the competitors that their ideas and hard work are highly valued by our state’s business and education communities.

The Awards Luncheon will be Wednesday, April 22, 2015, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in the Wally Allen Ballroom, Statehouse Convention Center, Little Rock
