인용 부호

The reactions we’ve been seeing tonight [at Startup Crawl] have been really cool. People have been…enjoying learning about the ecosystem of small businesses and startups here in Northwest Arkansas. It’s just been cool how engaged people want to be.” – Joshua Carnes, (2:39)

With the way we’ve structured our pricing and also the affordability of using a product and a hardware device that most people carry around every day, and then just our magnet we sell at cost, you’re able to utilize velocity-based training whether you’re a strength coach at the university level and you want to outfit your athletes with the latest programming that professional athletes are using, or if you’re just an everyday gym-goer that wants to utilize programming that D1 athletes are utilizing, we’re able to provide that.” – Brody Maxwell, (5:39)

What we’re doing is exposing careers and opportunities in music, entertainment, and live events. Because, as you said, that ecosystem, that’s a sector of industry that people don’t think about, that nighttime economy where most people go out.” – Orson Weems, (9:03)

[Startup Crawl] is like a big family reunion for entrepreneurs because you get to see people that you only see online or haven’t seen in a couple of years or whatever else…And so it’s so encouraging to see so many people doing well [and] thriving here.” – Bryan Fittin, (19:25)

[Startup Crawl] was incredible. There were so many people here. The vibe was really cool, just with all the music and everything, and getting to interact with so many people who are interested in our story and entrepreneurs and wanting to support. It was just great connections for us.” – Bridgett Skeirik, (25:21)

Sights & Sounds NWA

Although Joshua hasn’t yet finalized a location for Sights & Sounds, he has a clear picture of what the space will look and feel like. Picture a coffee shop, but remove the coffee—instead of a coffee bar, there are are work benches so that you can watch the luthiers build and repair instruments. In the evenings, the space will transform into an artists and musicians lounge. Josh envisions the shop as a safe space for musicians and artists to grow their network and develop the creative community in Northwest Arkansas.
